Jet Linx St. Louis Reports 2016 Growth in Local Base Operations

ST. LOUIS – January 2016 – Jet Linx St. Louis, one of 14 base Jet Linx locations nationwide, has grown its local member base to 80 this year with four aircraft and plans to expand its existing
fleet in early next year.

“Our St. Louis Base is all about convenience – our location is just 10 minutes from the financial district, 15 minutes from downtown, and minutes from neighborhoods in which our members live,” said Rich Ropp, Base President of Jet Linx St. Louis. “Through local, personalized service, we offer a formula that delivers a meaningful and customized experience for all our members.” The St. Louis Base operates out of Lambert–St. Louis International Airport (STL), providing local members with unmatched service and the convenience of having a dedicated staff assisting members with their every need for every trip.

Jet Linx is the leading provider for aircraft management services, offering a spectrum of benefits through a combination of local bases backed by a powerful national infrastructure. From aircraft acquisitions to cost-effective aircraft operation to aircraft maintenance, Jet Linx keeps both aircraft owners and potential owners based in St. Louis assured that they are receiving a best-inthe-industry experience with guaranteed revenue and savings. In addition, Jet Linx aircraft management clients in St. Louis automatically gain access to the Jet Linx Jet Card program, with no up-front membership fee required, and guaranteed aircraft availability, hourly rates and the highest standard of safety. In fact, the Jet Card program serves as a backup solution for an aircraft owner when their aircraft is on a revenue flight or down for maintenance.

Additional cost-effective differentiators within the Jet Linx Card program include round trip rates based on occupied flight time only, exclusive one-way specials as well as access to Jet Linx’s fleet of light, midsize, super midsize and heavy jets, without penalty for the upgrade. Jet Linx concluded 2016 with more than a 20 percent increase in miles flown since last year, totaling 58 million miles since its inception. Peak travel times, including the Thanksgiving season, aided in breaking previous company records with 140 legs flown on Tuesday, Nov. 22 and 174 on Sunday, Nov. 27. On the international front, Jet Linx achieved authorization to operate in Cuba, granting Jet Card holders and aircraft owners the ability to travel to Havana and 11 other airports in Cuba upon securing the required visas.

Jet Linx is among the top one percent of all aircraft operators in the U.S., having earned an ARGUS Platinum Safety Rating, IS-BAO Stage 3 certification and the Wyvern Wingman safety rated operator designation.
