The grand opening celebration of Jet Linx Minneapolis private terminal – the Company’s 19th private terminal location – represents yet another significant step in strategic growth and national expansion for Jet Linx, including its recent acquisition of the Meridian Aircraft Management & Air Charter business at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, serving New York City, in July. In addition to pursuing an ambitious acquisition strategy, Jet Linx has also celebrated a series of milestones in recent years, including the opening of four new private Base terminals, a new and expanded private terminal in Nashville and a second Base terminal in St. Louis; the introduction of two new Jet Card programs, the establishment of two groundbreaking partnerships with Forbes Travel Guide and Southwest Airlines; and the hosting of its inaugural Aviation Safety Symposium, the first-ever event that invites industry partners to share, educate and advance safety efforts in Part 135 operations.
