(KALAMAZOO, MI) (05/29/2019) – Golfers and vacationers looking for a getaway in elusive, northern Michigan can now look to aircraft management and charter company RAI Jets LLC in Kalamazoo to take them directly to the area’s finest courses and luxury accommodations. RAI Jets is excited to announce express service of their King Air aircraft to the Boyne Mountain area near Little Traverse Bay.

“The service is in response to customers from the eastern Wisconsin shore and Chicagoland area who don’t want to drive around the lake for five, six, or maybe seven hours to reach the peaceful, scenic rolling hills and mild summer temperatures in the Boyne Mountain area,” said Becky Bakeman, president of RAI Jets LLC. “With our new express service in our King Air aircraft, tourists can arrive in an hour with the option to 2 take advantage of an overnight package or play a round of golf on an award-winning course and head home the same day. It’s another example of the time-saving advantage of charter flight for leisure travel.”

The Boyne Mountain area is ideal for access by private aircraft, with smaller airports conveniently located near the three top resorts that RAI Jets will be serving: the Inn at Bay Harbor in Bay Harbor, Michigan; Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs, Michigan; and Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, Michigan. RAI Jets also arranges ground transportation to and from the resorts.

Each locale features stunning golf courses, some with spectacular views of Lake Michigan, while other courses journey golfers through nature preserve-like settings featuring northern Michigan’s gentle rolling hills, or Scottish-style links aimed at challenging the most advanced golfer.

Another advantageous feature of private jet charter travel is the easy ability to transport golf clubs. “Our King Air has wing lockers that are especially convenient for one or more sets of golf clubs,” said Bakeman, “but even for the non-golfer, the resort area is delightful for relaxing, shopping, using the spa and just enjoying nature.”
