The aircraft features reclining leather seats in an executive configuration, power outlets, a pressurized cabin, an enclosed lavatory and a top speed of 330-plus mph.

Lenny Llerena, manager of the Victoria Regional Airport, said in the news release that the county is excited to work with the new air carrier.

“We are confident that with Boutique Air’s reputation in the industry and the addition of two daily flights to Houston Intercontinental Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with United Airlines codeshare, we will attract business and leisure travelers alike to fly Boutique Air,” Llerena said.

Boutique’s CEO Shawn Simpson said in the news release, “We are so excited to be initiating air service to Victoria. We know we will have a successful partnership with these communities for years to come.”
