Service Suspended
According to sources, Indigo had 51 landings and 53 take-offs in May.  In early June, Indigo suspended service citing financial reorganization.  They have ordered 25 planes but have taken delivery of two.  The additional jets were to expand service to include White Plains to Midway.

The public-charter airline faced scrutiny regarding security with the Port Authority, Gov. Jim McGreevey and Rep. Steve Rothman as well a key members of the House Transportation Committee and Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta.

Both McGreevey & Rothman maintain that Teterboro is not the place for scheduled charters.

During April 2003, the round-trip fare was halved.


New Charter Service Begins

On March 3, 2003 Indigo launches daily round trip public charters between Chicago Midway and New York/New Jersey Teterboro Airport.  Round-trip fares are about $1,500. Indigo flys out of its own facility at Chicago's Midway Airport (MDW), and out of Jet Aviation Teterboro (TEB), just 7 miles from Manhattan.

Indigo operates a fleet of Embraer 135 Business Jets configured with 16 executive-style seats.    Indigo jets fly at the same altitudes and speeds as larger commercial jets. Flights are crewed with a captain and first officer. Each jet has a large lavatory located in the rear of the cabin.

Up to 3 pieces of luggage/items are allowed plus carry-on. Indigo follows the commercial aviation standards for size and weight for luggage. To book reservations call 1-877-4INDIGO (1-877-446-3446) or go online at

What is a "public charter"?
A public charter is a convenient, long-standing form of service authority authorized by the U.S. Department of Transportation that allows individual passengers to share chartered aircraft flying between cities on a frequent and regular basis. Indigo, LLC is a public charter operator (charterer); Indigo’s sister company, AirServ Inc, is the certificated air carrier operating the aircraft.
