Private jet charters faced a bit of headwind during the recession but use by both individuals and corporations is on the rise, fueled by convenience, safety and time savings.

Over 300 guests welcomed Jet Linx to Tulsa at an official grand opening celebration held at Tulsa International Airport Legacy Jet Center May 13.

“The timing is perfect,” says Russ Newman, Jet Linx local base partner and president. “Following nearly three decades in this marketplace, I am delighted to be joining forces with Jet Linx to offer Tulsa travelers the highest levels of safety and service.”

What sets Jet Linx apart from other private jet charter companies, Newman believes, is guaranteed availability and guaranteed pricing.

Jet Linx, a locally focused private jet company founded in 1999, is headquartered in Omaha, Neb. Tulsa becomes its 10th home base. What this means to Jet Linx clients, explains Newman, is private jet travel with an emphasis on local operations, backed by the resources of a national fleet of 55 jets – a number Jet Linx CEO Jamie Walker expects to keep growing.

“Jet Linx is growing, and a Tulsa home base is a natural extension of our business,” says Walker. “Tulsa has a robust economy and strong aviation history, coupled with its location relative to our existing operations in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Omaha, San Antonio, Scottsdale and St. Louis, makes it a natural extension of our business. The response to our grand opening in Tulsa has rivaled, if not exceeded, that in our other nine markets.”

Jet Linx is an International Business Aviation Council Stage 2 registered operator and ARGUS Platinum safety rated, an accomplishment earned by less than three percent of the aircraft management companies in the United States. Core services include a Jet Card program and turnkey Aircraft Management. The company recently launched an exclusive member benefits program, Elevated Lifestyle. This new program includes a variety of special offers in travel, transportation and wine and spirits and provides an incredible value-added benefit to Jet Linx membership.
