What a great way to “elevate” your traveling expectations!

You only have to arrive at the airport 30 minutes prior to your “chartered” flight or 45 minutes prior to your “scheduled” flight.  The representatives of the airport greet you upon arrival, handle all of your luggage, and valet park your car for free. If you fly into the Ft. Lauderdale International Airport  (FLL), their complimentary shuttle will pick you up & the ride is only 15 minutes to the Tropic Ocean Airways terminal located at FLL.

Here is a rundown of some of the cool destinations you can fly into:
