Lynx FBO Network has expanded its network with the purchase of World Jet, one of four service providers at Florida business aviation hub Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE). The acquisition gives the two-year-old, Sterling Group-backed company its seventh location overall in the U.S. and its second FBO in the state.

Its facility at FXE offers a passenger lounge, pilot lounge and snooze room, on-site car rental and crew cars, and more than 350,000 sq ft of hangar space to accommodate the latest large-cabin business jets. But Lynx plans significant investments in the location, including a refresh of the facility’s grounds, and the design and construction of a new FBO terminal, which will double the size of the existing building, according to company president and partner Chad Farishon.

“We see this expansion into the Florida market, and in particular South Florida, as an integral part of our growing network of FBOs,” Farishon said. “Lynx looks forward to working with the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, the city of Fort Lauderdale, and the local FBO team to deliver a best-in-class service offering for our customers in the South Florida region.”
