Jet Linx The Tutu Project

Jet Linx, a leading private jet management company that sells jet card memberships, continued its support of The Tutu Project during October

Omaha-based Jet Linx Aviation said it raised over $87,000 for breast cancer patient support as part of its ongoing support of The Tutu Project, which provides financial and emotional support for patients.

The private aviation company has been supporting the charity for five years. The Tutu Project was founded by Bob and Linda Carey, in 2003.  It began after Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and Bob began taking photos of himself wearing only a pink tutu in public places to put a smile on Linda’s face.

Wheels Up, Jet Linx, and XO: Comparing the private jet sharing options

Shared private jet charters offer big savings. Are they ready to take off? An in-depth comparison of the three major shared flight providers.

Jet Linx says last year it flew 40,000 empty seats; XO says it has sold over 160,000 single seats on shared flights

Sharing half of your flights between New York and South Florida during the winter could save as much as $75,000

Restrictions in jet sharing may mean it’s not right for you

Can you fly for the same price as first-class with the airlines?

Everyone wants to fly privately, says Kenny Dichter, the CEO and co-founder of Wheels Up. And the idea is the cheaper it is to fly privately, the more people who will do it. Dichter says that was his idea using the eight-seat King Air 350i to “democratize” short flight.

In the world of chartering your entire aircraft, he cut the price for a one-hour flight for eight people to around $5,000 compared to a cost of $8,000 to $10,000 for the same trip on a jet. His argument was that there was a minimal time penalty since landings and takeoffs are not at full speed, and often as you get near to your destination airport, airplanes are slowed down to similar speeds.
