The Omaha-based management and jet card provider said it acquired Elliott Aviation’s private jet management business
Jet Linx, which has approximately 100 private jets under
management and has been expanding its bases where it sells jet cards, is adding
another dot on its growing map – Minneapolis. The latter is the result of its
purchase of Elliott Aviation’s private jet management business. According to a
press release, the acquisition was completed at the end of last week, and terms
of the transaction were not disclosed.
The fast-growing private jet management and jet card provider is moving into major markets
Last month Jet Linx Aviation announced it had passed the 100 million mile flight mark, the time type of milestone that is probably more important to the company than customers. However, the company also noted, half of those miles had been flown in the past five years, a sign of accelerating growth.
Through the end of April, the former Skyjet Explorer pay-as-you-go
fixed rate jet card is being discounted to $5,000
Directional Aviation’s OneSky, which owns Flexjet and Sentient Jet, said it has merged its Skyjet brand into PrivateFly, which it had acquired last September. Skyjet was acquired by Directional in 2014 as part of Bombardier’s divestiture of its fractional share arm Flexjet. The Skyjet team is being merged into PrivateFly under Adam Twidell, the co-founder and CEO of PrivateFly.
The jet card provider says it will open private terminals in Austin, Boston, Chicago, and New York this quarter
Private jet management and jet card company Jet Linx said it has passed the 100 million mile threshold following a 1,085-mile flight from Scottsdale, Ariz. to Omaha, Neb. yesterday. It also says it is on the verge of adding four new private terminals to its network in the coming weeks.
Jet Linx wants prospects to get a first-hand look at its network of private terminals in the 15 markets it serves. The private terminals can only be accessed by owners of the aircraft it manages and members of its two jet card programs, providing a more personalized approach than with FBOs.
