Charter Services Increase Due To Recent Events

Because of recent events, those who can afford it are avoiding the hassle of big-city airports all together and chartering a plane to get them where they need to go. 

Stebbins Jet Center in Longview says they've seen a 25 percent increase in business.  "It's just very convenient for people to charter aircraft.  They will be allowed to carry whatever they need with them instead of having to destroy it or check it," says Dee Postins, the flight coordinator for Stebbins Jet Center.

Postins also says the company does have security precautions, but they are not as strict as major airlines.
