Swift Air has rebranded to iAero Airways

In 2019, Swift Air was taken over by the iAero group and rebranded into iAero Airways. Please take a look at our page on iAero Airways for more information.

About Swift Air

Swift Air was a US airline based in Miami, Florida. The airline flew charter flights for tour operators and sports teams across the US, as well as internationally, often to Europe. 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.


Carry-on Baggage

Passengers flying with Swift Air were entitled to one carry-on bag and one smaller, personal-type baggage on board the plane. Carry-on baggage could not have external dimensions larger than ten inches by fourteen inches by twenty-four inches.(10in X14 in X24in) and additional carry-on baggage on flights was allowed when the load factor permitted. Personal-type items included purses, briefcases, cameras, food containers, or laptops (case included). The following items were not considered carry-on bags or personal-type items and were not counted against the one bag plus one personal-type item.

1. A child restraint device for a child who had a seat reserved

2. Mobility devices for individuals with a disability

3. Outer garments or other wearable articles of clothing

4. Food for consumption during flight contained in disposable packaging

5. Walking canes or umbrellas.

Checked Baggage

Maximum weight for checked-in baggage with Swift Air was 19kg and the maximum size was 62 inches (length + width + height) per checked piece of luggage. 

Cabin Classes

Swift Air flew with Economy and First Class cabins. The layout of the plane was often customisable for whichever client was hiring the plane.

Swift Air's Boeing 737-400 planes were the longest-serving planes within its fleet and had First Class cabins only. These planes were designed with luxury First Class interiors, as well as personal work areas at each seat, electrical outlets and many other First Class perks.
