Phenom 300 private jet charter operator GrandView Aviation added bases in Scottsdale and Chicago in 2020
Denver is becoming a hot spot for expansion among private jet operators. Maryland-based GrandView Aviation said it would open a base at Centennial Airport on Feb. 1. It’s the company’s sixth base. In recent years, the Embraer Phenom 300 operator has added Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, and Scottsdale.

Sister JSX is continuing a reduced schedule of flights between private jet terminals
Private jet charter operator JetSuite, which sells Phenom 300 jet cards, is halting operations. The move reflects a steep dive in private travel from the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Closure of many hotels and resorts has meant aside from second homes and emergencies, there are few places to travel.
