founded in 2007

We set the Bar High

MLW Air was founded in 2007 by Mark Cuban, Robert Hart and Martin Woodall.  After successfully overseeing the purchase and refurbishment of a Boeing 757 for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Cuban, Hart and Woodall were inspired to design a similar luxury flight experience that could be made available for private charter.  This inspiration became reality when MLW Air acquired and refurbished its Boeing 767-200 aircraft, creating a premier all-first-class commercial charter jet capable of worldwide operations.  For the last decade and a half, MLW Air has flown hundreds of customized luxury charter flights around the globe for some of the world’s most distinguished and recognizable VIP clients, including professional sports teams, musical artists, multi-national corporations and government dignitaries.
