Lynx FBO, which acquired the World Jet facility at Florida's Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) last year, announced it will break ground on a new multi-million dollar facility there in the first half of 2021. Since January 2019, the company, which currently has eight FBOs across the country, has been operating from an existing facility on the northeast side of the field and, since its purchase, has invested $1.5 million in upgrades to the location’s hangar complex.
New plans call for the construction of a 6,700-sq-ft terminal on the northwest side, directly off Taxiway F, near the Marriott Courtyard hotel. The project also includes 40,000 sq ft of new adjacent hangar space able to shelter the latest ultra-long-range business jets. That will bring the FBO to approximately 300,000 sq ft of hangar space, along with four new acres of ramp, which would give Lynx one of the largest contiguous ramps at the GA-dedicated airport. The new facility is slated for completion by the second half of 2022.
“We have made significant investments at [FXE], including the addition of a highly-qualified and experienced management team, as well as the training and development of our associates,” said Lynx president Tyson Goetz. “We are excited to be developing a world-class FBO campus that is representative of our service culture for the customers of Fort Lauderdale.”
