Avatar Airlines names Marvin Ruthenberg President & COO
BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A new era in air travel is coming. Avatar Airlines, based in Boca Raton Fla., will prove that it is an airline “Where Size Matters.” The airline will be first in a new generation of air travel in the United States.
Avatar Airlines Founder Barry Michaels laid the way for Avatar Airlines to become a reality with his dream, an airline that will make Americans rethink air travel.

Ruthenberg said he will work with senior staff to excite investors, find suitable aircraft to fit the Avatar Airlines business model, and work with government agencies to obtain the necessary authority that will allow operations to begin.
Ruthenberg is no stranger to the airline industry. He came from a legacy airline where he started as a mechanic. From there, he wore many hats, including entry level management positions until he eventually became a vice president.
“I have direct experience working with the FAA as well as other regulatory agencies both domestic and foreign,” Ruthenberg said.
During his tenure, Ruthenberg successfully met and exceeded managerial and financial targets. Ruthenberg also met shareholders expectations, especially in the areas of domestic and international regulations, while balancing operational, safety and security compliance.
Ruthenberg has been studying domestic travel for several years and has learned what it takes to make an operation successful.
“My past successes and a few setbacks have brought me to this point in my life where I can build on my achievements and learn from my setbacks,” Ruthenberg said.
ABOUT AVATAR AIRLINES
Avatar is building a better airline from the ground up. Avatar will make full use of the latest technology in order to bring down the cost of air travel, without sacrificing the creature comforts of luxury flight. Exclusive use of online reservations (“straight to the gate”) is a tremendous savings for Avatar, and allows it to pass on a tremendous savings to its passengers. Not only will Avatar not sacrifice creature comforts, it will actually enhance them. We realize that “creature comforts” may mean different things to different passengers. Some passengers may want to use their flight-time to totally unplug and relax by catching a few extra winks or by even curling up with a good book. We get it. There’s no reason these passengers should have to pay for technology they don’t plan on using. It’s one of the ways Avatar plans to keep the overall cost of flight travel at remarkably low levels.
Avatar Airlines will utilize four-engine Boeing 747 jumbo jets, reconfigured with 539 seats in the main cabin and 42 office class seats on the upper deck, resulting in the lowest cost per available seat mile in the industry. A tremendous savings will be passed on directly to our passengers because of this. It’s not rocket science. Bigger aircraft + more seats = lower price. And when you’re free to walk about the cabin, you’ll have two roomy aisles to choose from, not to mention an average of about 12 restrooms.
