Merlin Express, formerly commencing operations in 1983 as Sat-Air, metamorphosed over years into a robust Part 135/121 cargo and passenger airline, actively operating throughout numerous locations, including the United States, South America, and varied parts of the Caribbean. Although the airline’s journey spanned through periods of vibrant expansions and unavoidable contractions, notably between 1996 and 2000, it has anchored its services in providing expansive freight and passenger connectivity, even amidst parental company challenges and subsequent acquisition by Corporate Air.
Despite its vibrant historical tapestry, Merlin Express, in its operational prime, covered a thoughtful selection of destinations, orchestrating flights to locales such as Santiago, Providenciales, Aruba, and Port of Spain, thereby sewing connectivity threads through the Caribbean and beyond, ensuring passengers and cargo could traverse efficiently across a network that spanned both geographical and logistical expanses.
Boasting a diverse fleet, Merlin Express deployed an array of aircraft models, each thoughtfully integrated to serve the varied demands of their route network. From the robust Swearingen SA226-AT Merlin IVA Metroliner to the capacious Embraer EMB 120RT Brasilia, and including the Beechcraft 1900C and Cessna 208 Caravan, the airline ensured that both cargo and passenger services were facilitated with a keen balance of capacity, range, and reliability.
