Our Buying Power Saves Our Owners
Thousands of Dollars Annually
Of the 2,300 charter management companies in the U.S., we manage the third largest Part 135 fleet. The size of our fleet qualifies us for volume discounts not available to smaller charter companies. We pass along these savings to our Aircraft Management clients.
As our client, you can expect a minimum savings of 15% on fuel, maintenance, pilot training, hangar costs, and insurance. Annually, these savings amount to tens of thousands of dollars.
// Fuel Savings
Fuel is the single largest expense for an aircraft owner. By continually researching the best possible programs and negotiating the best possible prices through partnerships with major fuel vendors and FBOs nationwide, we’re able to save aircraft owners more than $92,000* annually on fuel discounts alone. As a result of these efforts, we provide Aircraft Management clients with the most cost-effective aircraft operation possible.

The Only Aircraft Management Company With a Guaranteed, Controlled Revenue Stream For You
Jet Linx has a distinct advantage from other aircraft management companies. Our Jet Card program provides our clients with a controlled source of revenue. As an Aircraft Management client, we’ll add your aircraft to our fleet, making it available to our local and national base of Jet Card members.
In comparison to other aircraft management providers who depend on the wholesale charter market, Jet Linx is the only aircraft management company that offers you a guaranteed, internally-controlled stream of revenue through the built-in demand from our Jet Card Program. We also set the hourly revenue paid to our owners, as well as the fuel cost per gallon on all revenue flights. By doing so, we eliminate the variable costs of charter for an aircraft owner. In addition to the revenue generated through the Jet Card program, we can also fill deadhead or transient aircraft flights through the national charter market. Because Jet Linx has ARGUS Platinum, IS-BAO Stage 3, and Wyvern Wingman safety ratings, our fleet is the most sought-after in the national charter marketplace.
One of the most significant benefits Jet Linx offers an aircraft owner is that we perform and coordinate all of your aircraft’s maintenance. It begins with the addition of your aircraft to our state-of-the-art maintenance tracking software AvTrak, which is used to track more than 4,500 aircraft nationwide and supports more than 180 different aircraft makes and models.
Our full-time staff of maintenance technicians will then track and perform the regularly scheduled and unscheduled maintenance in-house, which will dramatically reduce your cost of ownership. The larger, less frequent inspections that require weeks of downtime and added personnel are performed in partnership with industry-trusted maintenance facilities.
// Our Maintenance Partners
Jet Linx has established exclusive partnerships with leading maintenance providers nationwide to ensure the highest quality and value from our Aircraft Management services. The Jet Linx team works hand-in-hand with our maintenance partners to establish trusting and productive working relationships for maintenance services performed at any location. Many of these partners provide support onsite at Jet Linx facilities, working side-by-side with our in-house technicians. Your aircraft is in good hands at all times.
