Centreline, the European leading aircraft management and charter company, has been cleared to carry passengers to the USA without a visa after securing its participation in the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP).

Centreline completed its first flight, under the VWP, at the beginning of January as a signatory carrier, enabling the operator to bring non-U.S. nationals into the country without a valid U.S. visa. U.S. Customs and Border law states that passengers travelling to the USA must travel on a signatory carrier if they do not hold a valid U.S. visa, even if they have their ESTA approval.

Centreline Commercial Director, Phil Brockwell commented;

We have worked hard to ensure our participation in the Visa Waiver programme as it removes a key barrier to travel for our passengers. We have two, superb, long range aircraft in our Falcon 2000 and Legacy 500 and these will be utilised to fly our customers to the United States in the utmost comfort. We are looking forward to welcoming more U.S. bound passengers on board.”

Centreline, previously known as Centreline Air Charter, recently undertook a total brand review and unveiled a new corporate identity and website. Centreline currently operates a fleet of 9 aircraft under management.
