US-based Jet Linx has released Flight Funds, a new client rewards programme launched in celebration of the company's 20th anniversary at the culmination of a record-breaking year that encompassed significant acquisitions, expansions and strategic partnerships. Using the programme, Jet Linx clients can earn up to four per cent cash back annually.
President and CEO Jamie Walker says: “For the past 20 years, we have been dedicated to becoming the finest and safest private jet management and jet card membership company, providing guaranteed private jet services on a local level to personally serve each client's individual needs. It is our Jet Linx clients who are responsible for our tremendous growth, and the Flight Funds programme is our way of saying 'thank you', and further enhancing the Jet Linx experience as we reflect on what has been our most successful year yet.
“Our incredible success over the last twenty years is due to our unique and innovative local business model and, most especially, to our exceptional team. I am very proud of what we have achieved and excited about what is yet to come.”
Over the course of its 20th year, Jet Linx has opened new bases in Austin, Boston, Chicago and New York, a new and expanded private terminal in Nashville, and a second base terminal in St Louis. The company has partnered with Forbes Travel Guide, and with Southwest Airlines in creating the pilot career programme Destination 225°, and acquired Elliott Aviation's private jet management business.
The company hosted its third annual Safety Summit in June, voluntarily grounding its fleet of over 100 aircraft and bringing together more than 500 employees to focus on advancing safety culture and to participate in a special keynote session led by former National Transportation Safety Board chairman Jim Hall. It also hosted its first ever Aviation Safety Symposium, to share, educate and advance safety efforts in Part 135 operations.
