Jet Linx debuts 'reimagined' Houston base
A microburst with 80 mph winds tried its best to disrupt Jet Linx Houston operations back in April, but the company stood firm and has since made improvements to its members-only facility at Hobby airport.
Jet Linx's Houston members-only terminal features a private lounge, conference room and aircraft hangar.

Omaha, Nebraska-headquartered Jet Linx has opened a refurbished base at Hobby airport, Houston. Covering 58,000 sq ft, a 77 per cent increase from its initial size, the facility includes a private lounge, conference room and aircraft hangar. The member-only terminal follows the April 2018 ‘wet microburst’ at Hobby, which produced winds of over 80 miles per hour according to the National Weather Service and caused damage to the hangar. Following the microburst, Jet Linx Houston continued its operations, managing to avoid delays and interruptions.

“We now have a new location with a bigger private terminal, bigger hangar and better location to serve our clients,” says president and CEO Jamie Walker. “The secret to our success is the resilience of our dedicated local team, and we will continue our unwavering commitment to delivering the most personalised private aviation experience.”

Base president Lance Welch adds: “Jet Linx Houston is stronger than ever, with an unfaltering dedication to client satisfaction. We took this opportunity to not only rebuild, but also expand our private terminal, to elevate the experience even further for our discerning members.”

Jet Linx already has 17 locally-operated locations across the US and recently celebrated the expansion of its private terminal in Washington, DC. New facilities in Chicago, New York and Boston are also planned.
