Million Air Dallas, a pioneer in full private jet services, on-demand charter operations, and cutting-edge solutions for managing jet ownership since 1984, has launched a new service brand.

MAnext, the company’s new global jet charter provider program, is the next evolution of private air amenities and conveniences now offered to those who choose to fly private and enjoy the comforts of this transportation tier.

MillionAir: Looking Back

In 1984, Million Air, a Mary Kay cosmetics corporation flight division, was established at an airport west of Dallas. Customers and sales staff at the nearby company who arrived by private aircraft experienced a luxurious “aviation oasis” through the single-site FBO.

The facility, owned by Mary Kay Ash’s son, Richard Rogers, attracted favorable notice, and in 1985, the company launched Million Air Interlink, a franchise. Independent FBOs started using the Million Air brand as the emerging fractional aviation industry took off.

Now, after several evolutions in development, Million Air Dallas can be found in more than two dozen locations in the continental U.S. and half a dozen more in Canada, the Caribbean (San Juan), South America (Cartagena, Columbia), and China (Beijing) for their services in overseeing air charters, management, maintenance, and sales.

MAnext: Charter Brokerage

The knowledgeable team of Charter Specialists at MAnext now brings a tailored point-to-point travel solution to satisfy any mission request, which can be from any location.

MAnext draws on four decades and thousands of hours of home-fleet-based charter experience. That means every service, including ground transportation, private security, dining accommodations, and even upscale spa treatments, can be provided and organized at the time and in the fashion requested.

“We have been in existence for 40 years, and just like every company, when you hit certain milestones, you have to look at how you can expand your business,” said Kiril Jakimovski, the company’s sales and marketing vice president. “MAnext, our charter brokerage program, is our answer to that.”

MAnext provides a personal link to an infinite selection of city pairings in any jet category, with no up-front membership commitments, while taking advantage of the company’s expertise in maximizing cost efficiencies.

How to Book through MAnext

“If you need to charter a plane from us, check a rough estimate on our website depending on the city pair. The next step would be to call us, and we’ll provide you with various options,” Jakimovski explained.

“Once the client informs us about the specific times they have in mind, the number of people traveling, the destination, and the return date and time for a round trip, we can proceed with the booking process.”

MAnext only works with operators who have undergone safety audits from ARGUS, Wyvern, or the Air Charter Safety Foundation—three of the top independent safety audit companies in the business aviation sector. Also, every aircraft and operator linked with MAnext is fully certified by the FAA and the U.S. Department of Transportation under 14 CFR Part 135 regulations—a protocol that is critical to the lengthy success history of Million Air Dallas as an in-demand fixed base operator (FBO).

As such, neither Million Air Dallas nor MAnext owns or operates any aircraft. Instead, Million Air Dallas serves as an agent for air carrier services on behalf of MAnext clients.

MAnext offers a comprehensive solution for sourcing aircraft for charter missions, regardless of whether it is for domestic or international travel. Their extensive network allows them to locate planes nationwide, ensuring that clients are provided with the most suitable aircraft for their specific needs and requirements.

Whether a short domestic flight or a long-haul international journey, MAnext can deliver a reliable and efficient service. “We can source anything from a small turboprop to a long-range jet,” says Jakimovski.
