Save Thousands in Fuel and Aircraft Maintenance Costs
Managing the third-largest Part 135 fleet in the nation brings our clients many volume discounts not available to other aircraft management services, and we pass these savings along to our clients. As an aircraft management client, you can expect to save a minimum of 15% on fuel, maintenance, pilot training, hangar costs and insurance. For the private jet owner, this means tens of thousands of dollars saved annually – all while receiving the nation’s leading aircraft management services.
// Fuel Savings
An aircraft owner’s largest expense for jet management is fuel cost. Jet Linx researches the best programs and negotiates prices with major fuel vendors nationwide, resulting in the most cost-effective solution for our aircraft management clients.
The Only Aircraft Management Company with a Guaranteed, Controlled Revenue Stream
Jet Linx has a distinct advantage over other aircraft management companies.
- Our Jet Card program provides our aircraft owners 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 services that depend solely 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. With this built-in, guaranteed revenue, our private jet management structure stands out.
- 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 Elite, IS-BAO Stage 3, and Wyvern Wingman safety ratings, our fleet is the most sought-after in the national charter marketplace. Safety standards matter for any private jet management company and ours stands at the top of the industry.
How Our Unique Approach to Aircraft Management Benefits You
The Jet Linx Aircraft Management model emphasizes local service at our local private terminals.
For trip planning, each Base offers a local Flight Concierge team who knows you by name and anticipates your travel needs. Your Flight Concierge will ensure your personal preferences are available on your flight, as well as assist with your Elevated Lifestyle client benefits program.
Whether maintenance is planned or unplanned, our professional teams coordinate service that emphasizes safety, efficiency and regulatory compliance. When you have familiar faces delivering proven private jet maintenance services, you can trust that your asset is in good hands.
National Operations Center: Supporting Local Aircraft Management
While 19 local teams at our private terminals provide hands-on aircraft management services, they are aided by a full-service team at our National Operations Center (NOC). Our NOC departments work in unison to provide support to our local teams, which boosts efficiency and reduces costs for aircraft management clients. With the combination of local support and national service, our aircraft management service provides wrap-around protection for your valuable assets.
Safety Department: Implements our industry-leading safety management system to ensure company-wide tasks are completed with the lowest risk possible.

One of the most significant benefits Jet Linx offers aircraft management clients is aircraft maintenance and oversight. It begins with the addition of your aircraft to our state-of-the-art maintenance tracking software, 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 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.
When it comes to maintenance, the focus is on safety, efficiency and compliance. Airworthiness remains the primary goal for our aircraft management clients, allowing their assets maximum availability to serve the aircraft owner, as well as our Jet Card members (to offset ownership costs).
// 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.
