Surf Air buys Rise

Surf Air, the membership airline based in Santa Monica, has acquired Dallas-based Rise airline and has announced plans to expand to nearly a dozen new destinations. No details were released on the amount Surf Air has paid for the Texan airline. The deal adds Rise’s 1,000 members to Surf Air’s 3,000 members and adds six Texas locations to Surf Air’s current 12 destinations in California.

Over the next 18 months, the combined carriers expect to add nearly a dozen new destinations, including Las Vegas, Seattle and New Orleans, plus weekend service to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, and Aspen and Vail in Colorado.
