The airline was based at Miami International Airport and operated under the Swift Air name from 1997–2019 when it was taken over and rebranded into iAero Airways, which is what it flies as today.
Swift Air was known for its luxury charter flights, carrying a number of VIP guests over the years, including several NBA, NHL and MLB teams, as well as presidential candidate John McCain, during the 2008 US election.
