Jet Linx officially opens Chicago base for management and jet cards

With New York and Boston in the pipeline, Jet Linx is open for business in the Windy City with its unique approach to jet card membership programs

 

Omaha-based Jet Linx aviation has officially added its 15th base for private jet management and jet cards, and it’s in Chicago, further pushing the company into major markets. Its services will be marketing across all Chicagoland airports with a soon-to-open dedicated private terminal at Chicago Executive Airport (PWK). The private terminals are the hallmark of Jet Linx providing members a high level of personalized service which includes having their cars detailed while they are traveling and returned curbside, a nice feature doing those cold Midwestern winters and roasting hot summers. 

Why buying a jet card is not just about hourly rate

Private Jet Card Comparisons has compiled over 65 variables from more than 35 jet card providers covering over 250 programs and put it all into easy-to-use spreadsheets

 

Imagine having to contact 35 different companies and requesting detailed answers about program policies and fees that go beyond the marketing collateral most send out, then having to put it into spreadsheets so you can compare the offerings. Private Jet Card Comparisons has done it for you with more than 250 programs, each with different offerings, all in one place to make comparing easy for you. 

Jet Linx Aviation’s terminal at Houston Hobby Airport damaged by severe storm

A strong microburst damaged the hangar used by Jet Linx Aviation at Houston Hobby Airport. Storms and high winds also damaged homes in the area and knocked down trees and telephone lines. No injuries were reported according to reports from both Houston Sky2 and Aviation International News. The storm hit on Tuesday. 

Are Empty Legs Really A Good Deal?

The answer is sometimes, and yes you can save money, but you need to be flexible

 

By various estimates, 30% to 50% of the private jet charter fleet flies empty. Why? Unlike airlines which schedule aircraft and then sell seats knowing at all times where planes are supposed to be and how many people are booked to be flying, in private aviation, the jets are waiting to go and pick up passengers willing to pay as much as $15,000 per hour to fly in them. In terms of structure, it’s as different as chalk and cheese.
