An airline with a different approach is preparing to take off in the United States. She is Judah 1, the world’s first Christian airline, which will focus on taking trips taking missionaries to various places in her country, America and the world “to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” says The Christian Post.
Based at Shreveport Regional Airport, Louisiana, the company has existed for some time as a private company and has transported small groups of missionaries to disaster areas and mission fields on closed flights to members of their church, but from 2021, Judah 1 “will become a standard airline,” President and CEO Everett Aaron told The Christian Post.
Meanwhile, the company is working on the final steps to obtain certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and is looking for larger planes, which can accommodate hundreds of people, by the end of 2021. Today, the largest aircraft in the fleet is an MD- 83, which can carry up to 120 people and 17,000 pounds of cargo.
“By the end of next year, we would like to have three to four large planes,” said Aaron, who confirms that he is looking at a Boeing 767-200ER with a capacity for 238 people and that could go anywhere in the world without much scales, in addition to carrying 30 tons of cargo.
Despite its new certificate, there will still be differences between Judah 1 and companies like Delta, American or Southwest. “We will be unscheduled and we don’t need to have approved routes,” said Aaron.
Although missionaries have to pay for airfare, Judah 1 promises to “not charge baggage fees”.
About the company
According to its website, Judah 1 is an aviation ministry dedicated to fulfilling “The Great Caravan”. Although Aaron says he had a vision for the creation of Judah 1 for the first time in almost three decades, his ministry came true in 2011.
“We serve missionary-minded Christians from all denominations who travel to the mission fields of the world. Our planes took hundreds of missionaries and carried thousands of pounds of cargo. It is very gratifying to know how many Judah 1 and our partners have helped. This includes the thousands who were seen in medical clinics and the thousands who accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. It is our passion to help them reach the two and a half billion people who do not know Jesus and that only takes “YOUR HANDS, LOVE OF GOD and OUR WINGS”, says the company in a note.
