A private charter jet service is to lease hangar space at the Greater Binghamton Airport. Broome County officials say Evolution Jets will lease for five years with an option of three renewals.

The service is primarily expected to serve specialized business clientele.

Evolution owner and CEO, Jamie Thomas said Binghamton is a great location allowing the business to easily reach numerous metropolitan markets.

The charter jet company also specializes in sales and acquisitions and has indicated plans for hiring 20 or more employees in Broome County.

Delta remains the only commercial carrier serving the Greater Binghamton area with flights to Detroit only.

County aviation officials say they are still in talks with several other companies looking to expand passenger air services to and from Broome County.
