Evolution Jets Landing at Greater Binghamton Airport

Private Jet Company to Bring Corporate Aircraft Business to Broome County 

(TOWN OF MAINE, NY) Broome County Executive Jason Garnar announced today that a private charter jet company will soon be landing at the Greater Binghamton Airport.   The County has entered into a contract agreement with Evolution Jets for a conventional hangar lease at the Greater Binghamton Airport. Evolution Jets is a private aviation company, specializing in charter, sales and acquisitions.   “We are certainly excited to see this growing company choose Broome County to expand their operations” said Jason Garnar, Broome County Executive. “This is the type of business development that we have been anticipating and we expect that this is just the start.”  

Evolution Jets will be leasing a 28,000-square foot hanger under a five-year agreement (through 2023) with the option of three renewals. 

Evolution Jets, whose mission statement is “To provide safe, professional, and efficient air transportation while serving our clients and our employees” will be adding to its operational network in Binghamton.  

Owner and CEO Jamie Thomas expressed his excitement in relocating to BGM. “Binghamton is a great location for our business model. From this location, we can reach numerous large metropolitan markets very easily. We would like to thank Jason Garnar and David Hickling for their efforts in making this endeavor possible!” 

Thomas also thanked the airport and Broome County Administration for their efforts in reaching an attractive agreement for Evolution Jets to choose BGM as their new home. 

“The Greater Binghamton Airport is a perfect fit for Evolution Jets,” said David Hickling, Commissioner of Aviation for Broome County. “Evolution is a perfect complement for the Airport as well. We look forward a long productive relationship as this company grows to be an industry leader right here at BGM.” 

Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo expressed her excitement with today’s announcement for the airport. 

“I’d like to welcome Evolution Jets to the Greater Binghamton Airport,” said Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo. “As Co-Chair of the NYS Legislative Aviation Caucus, I’ve worked hard to support and grow New York’s aviation industry. Most recently, we successfully enacted the Aviation Jobs Act helping New York remain competitive with all surrounding states. As a result, General Aviation Operations are beginning to thrive as more planes are being based at New York airports like ours. I’d like to thank the County Executive for his leadership in attracting a company like Evolution to our area.” 

With this announcement, Evolution Jets will be bringing 20+ jobs to Broome County. 

“We are excited to see Evolution Jets investing in Greater Binghamton, supporting local economic development, and creating 20+ jobs in Broome County. This is a perfect example of why aviation is so important to our community – beyond providing connectivity and increased accessibility via air service,” said Jennifer Conway, President and CEO of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce. 

The Broome County Legislature has approved the resolution in authorizing the agreement with Evolution Jets.
