Ultimate Air Shuttle lands at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (KPDK)

Members of the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, Chamblee Chamber of Commerce, and Chamblee City Council welcome members of Ultimate Air Shuttle to Dekalb-Peachtree Airport.



The newest charter air service at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport is aiming to go sky-high serving the North Atlanta business community and beyond.

Ultimate Air Shuttle, which offers jet travel to and from cities like Chicago, New York and Charlotte expanded to Atlanta in March after listening to what their passengers wanted, said Regional Manager Jeania Uplinger.

“More than 90 percent of our business travelers live or work in the Buckhead area and we’re excited to serve this community,” she said.

The plane seats thirty people and flies into DeKalb-Peachtree Airport each morning and departs in the afternoon Monday through Friday. And for those living or working in the north metro area, the benefits to flying in and out of Georgia’s second busiest airport are numerous, said Uplinger.

“It can be exhausting trying to travel to Hartsfield-Jackson with navigating traffic, paying for parking, lugging all your belongings across the airport and more. With us, passengers can arrive 25 minutes before we depart. We do the TSA pre-check before your arrival, there’s check in at our counter and we take your bags up to the plane,” she said. “There is also free parking, no baggage fees and wine, fruits and vegetables, cocktails, juice, soda and more so that our passengers arrive rested and stress free.”

The company recently celebrated a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the airport with members of the Chamblee Chamber of Commerce and Uplinger said working with city of Chamblee officials and DeKalb Peachtree airport officials has been a positive experience.

“Once we expressed that we are not a commercial airline and are not looking to expand any runways, we found everyone we’ve worked with to be very welcoming,” Uplinger said.



While Ultimate Air Shuttle is approved to provide public charter service to any airport within the United States, the business is not looking to copy commercial airline models of multiple seating capacities and aggressive growth plans.

The twin jet engine planes must still follow a strenuous safety and security program and the company boasts no aircraft accidents or incidents.

“We want to provide a simple, comfortable and hassle-free way to travel,” said Uplinger.

Through September 5, first time fliers can purchase any round trip ticket, excluding Monday morning flights, for $299. For more information, visit www.ultimateairshuttle.com/promotions/
