In the highly competitive jet card market, Jet Linx is thinking national but acting local.

Each base is set up with local management and operates out of a dedicated facility. In each base city, Jet Linx then sells jet cards onto its locally managed fleet, with the backup of having more than a dozen bases across the country.
