October 28, 2020

Jet Linx, a private jet membership and aircraft management company, has opened its 19th private terminal location in the United States. The newly constructed private terminal at Flying Cloud Airport will serve the Minneapolis and St. Paul market.

“We are excited to announce the highly anticipated grand opening of our new Minneapolis private terminal as part of our nationwide growth strategy. With the growing demand for personalized private aviation services, it is a pleasure to introduce our unique business model to the region,” said Jamie Walker, President and CEO of Jet Linx.

“As part of the exceptional Minneapolis and St. Paul community, we look forward to providing new and existing Jet Card members and aircraft owners with an unparalleled private aviation service through our signature local, personalized approach.”

The opening of the private terminal represents another step in strategic growth and national expansion for Jet Linx. In July, the company announced the acquisition of the Meridian Aircraft Management & Air Charter business at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport, serving New York City.

Other milestones in recent years include the opening of four new private base terminals, a new and expanded private terminal in Nashville, and a second base terminal in St. Louis; the introduction of two new Jet Card programs, the establishment of partnerships with Forbes Travel Guide and Southwest Airlines; and the hosting of its inaugural Aviation Safety Symposium.

Private aircraft and luxury cars filled the ramp outside the new private terminal in Minneapolis for its opening Oct. 8. Also on display: a Citation Longitude, Citation X+, Gulfstream 500, Gulfstream 280, and Lear 45, plus a Ferrari F8 Tributo.

“Our new private terminal in Minneapolis exemplifies how Jet Linx is dedicated to serving our clients in a way no other private aviation business can,” said Lee McGillivray, Jet Linx Minneapolis Base president. “Current and future members and aircraft owners now have access to our dedicated, local team and to the amenities available exclusively in our private terminal, as well as to our guaranteed private jet services. We were excited to share a preview of the service and luxury the Minneapolis-community can expect at our grand opening.”

Jet Linx Aviation is a locally focused private jet company founded in Omaha, NE, in 1999, and has base locations in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York, Omaha, San Antonio, Scottsdale, St. Louis, Tulsa, and Washington DC.

Jet Linx offers two different ways to experience private aviation – a guaranteed jet card and private jet management program – providing its clients with an all-encompassing, local solution to private jet travel.
