Jet Linx Grows with Elliott Jet Management Purchase

Jet Linx, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is one of the country's largest jet management providers. It has expanded with the acquisition of Elliott Aviation's management business, which adds another nine aircraft to its managed aircraft fleet.

Business jet management provider Jet Linx, the third largest in the U.S., has continued its growth with the acquisition of Elliott Aviation’s management division. Jet Linx recently passed a milestone with its fleet having flown more than 100 million miles. Since 2015, it acquired two other management companies: ProJet Aviation in Washington, D.C. and Flight Concepts in Oklahoma. This latest move adds another nine aircraft to the Nebraska-based company’s current fleet of 105 aircraft under management.

“Both Jet Linx and Elliott Aviation are respected family businesses and industry leaders that have enjoyed a thriving partnership for more than two decades,” said Jamie Walker president and CEO of Jet Linx. “This acquisition will enable Jet Linx to expand our operations in the midwest as well as provide private jet management services and jet card offerings to Elliott Aviation’s clients, allowing Elliott Aviation to continue serving our aircraft owners' maintenance, paint, and refurbishment needs while focusing on the development of its core business.”

Elliott has facilities in Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota, and the company plans to surrender its charter certificate after the transfer of the aircraft management operation.

“As Elliott Aviation enhances our focus on our maintenance, repair, and overhaul business, we wanted to find the right company to take over our existing aircraft management division,” said chairman and CEO Wynn Elliott. “As Jet Linx shares many of our core values, it is the ideal choice to take over this part of our business.”
