Aircraft management, charter, and jet card provider Jet Linx is continuing its rapid expansion with the grand opening of a private terminal in Boston. Held late last week, the festivities drew 125 guests and aircraft on display from Bombardier, Embraer, Falcon, Gulfstream, and Textron Aviation.
Led by base president Brad Rosse, the Jet Linx terminal houses an executive lounge, private conference room, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a fully stocked kitchenette. Joining the team with Rosse are two native Bostonian managing partners: Samuel Byrne, managing partner and co-founder of CrossHarbor Capital Partners, and David Fialkow, co-founder and managing director of General Catalyst.
“We are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated grand opening of our Boston private terminal and the formal introduction of our unique service model to new and existing Jet Card members in the Boston area,” said Jet Linx president and CEO Jamie Walker. “Boston is one of our most valuable markets and continues to show significant growth.”
The Boston base is part of a growth strategy that includes additional bases throughout the U.S.—in Austin, Chicago, and New York, with future locations planned for Florida and California. Jet Linx also is expanding through acquisition, including last month’s purchase of Elliott Aviation’s management division. In the past four years, it also has acquired ProJet Aviation in Washington, D.C., and Flight Concepts in Oklahoma.
Currently, Jet Linx has more than 100 aircraft in its fleet and some 500 employees. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the company surpassed the 100 million miles mark on March 24. Half of those miles were flown in the last five years alone, Walker noted.
