Jet Linx has unveiled its flagship private terminal at Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska. The ribbon-cutting ceremony marks a milestone in Jet Linx's strategic growth as new CEO Brent Wouters plans to dramatically increase the size of the fleet and grow jet card membership. Jet Linx Aviation is the third-largest private jet management company in the US. Wouters is an experienced business leader responsible for developing Cirrus Aircraft globally during his decade-long tenure as CEO of the aircraft manufacturer.
The original Jet Linx Omaha facility debuted in 2004 as the company's first private terminal before nationwide expansion. The new 60,000sq ft private terminal features 28ft high doors capable of housing the largest business jets, as well as heated pavement for seamless arrivals and departures with a 6,600sq ft, glass-enclosed private lounge area.
"This flagship facility shows our commitment to aircraft owners, jet card members and our team as we aim to provide best-in-class service and facilities," says chairman Jamie Walker. "As we approach our company's 25th anniversary, it seems fitting to return to our roots in Omaha as we enter a new phase of expansion and operational excellence."
Walker, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert, Omaha Airport Authority chief executive officer Dave Roth and former Omaha Airport Authority board member Willy Theisen all spoke at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Other dignitaries in attendance included members of the Omaha City Council, Nebraska Department of Economic Development and Greater Omaha Chamber, as well as partners from the University of Nebraska at Omaha Aviation Institute.
