January 06, 2012

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (Jan. 6, 2012) – Global Aviation Holdings kicked off the 2011-2012 college bowl season by transporting four football teams and three bands aboard World Airways and North American Airlines chartered aircraft. Global had a “break-even” season, carrying two winning teams – Michigan State University and Temple University.

“We always enjoy getting into the bowl spirit,” said Brian Bauer, Global’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Our touchdowns take place on the runway, so the players can do their best on the field. We were hoping for a 4-0 record for our customers, but there is always next year.”

World also transported the Michigan State Spartan Band to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla., and operated charter flights for two high school bands performing in the Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, Calif. – one from Avon, Ind., and one from Crestview, Fla. Participation by high schools in this prestigious parade is by invitation only, based upon their outstanding talent.
