Private Jets and Beyond, We’re Here for the Long Haul

May 21, 2020 | Private Jet Travel

Private jets offer safety, security, and stability when you need it most.


Due to the COVID-19 crisis, passenger flights plummeted by nearly 75% in April 2020 compared to the same period last year. The travel industry slowed dramatically as the world waited for more clarity. Even as stay-at-home orders lift, there remains volatility and uncertainty around travel. It’s more important than ever to work with a private jet company that has a long-term vision and invests in sustainable expansion.

Private jet services from Jet Linx remain a safe and secure solution. Since 1999, Jet Linx has offered Jet Card members and aircraft owners a guaranteed highest standard of safety, guaranteed and fixed hourly rates, and guaranteed availability. Our program ensures your private jet flight takes place at the given hourly rate with the promise of a recovery aircraft in the event of a mechanical issue.

Our Team Has Been Here Before


Of the 573 Part 135 private jet operators in the United States, over 70% have five or fewer jets in their fleet. Smaller, less established private jet companies have suddenly ceased operations and closed their doors amidst the upheaval of the pandemic, leaving clients in the lurch. Larger private jet operators with asset-heavy business models have met a similar fate.

Since our inception in Omaha over 20 years ago, we’ve positioned Jet Linx to successfully leverage recessionary periods and use them as opportunities. Our asset-light model ensures Jet Linx remains strong during volatile economic periods. Not only did Jet Linx navigate the economic downturn in 2008, but our company also grew through it. We jumped into growth mode to capitalize on the fallout of the Great Recession and opened our first two locations outside of Omaha in 2009.

Jet Linx continues to grow and has successfully weathered previous downturns.

Jet Linx remains a reliable option in the wake of uncertainty and volatility. Because our team provides an essential service, we understand that failing is not an option – especially when our services are needed most. While other private jet operators and air carriers face uncertainty, our model and strength as a company ensure our services remain guaranteed to our customers. Our fleet of over 100 light, midsize, super midsize and heavy jets is at the ready to serve our clients with care and assurance.

Customer Service and Safety


Early on in the current crisis, Jet Linx took steps to further assure passenger safety. The application of BIOPROTECTUs™ on all private jets and in all Jet Linx private terminals assured safe travel for our clients. The groundbreaking technology destroys viruses, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms at the cellular level.

New products and services were also created to provide security and sustainability, such as the release of the limited-time affiliate jet card membership. Operational procedures and safety standards were scrutinized and updated to improve security for flight crews and passengers.

Strong partnerships across the aviation industry have cemented Jet Linx as trusted advisers and leaders in private jet safety. Our Director of Safety Sheryl Clarke is working with the NATA Task Force to collaborate with industry experts and prepare the industry for recovery. As a leading private jet company, our strong position in the industry allowed for additional leadership in guiding recovery.

Continued Strength and Stability


Commercial air travel remains uncertain. Private jet services from Jet Linx stand out as a dependable and safe solution during a time of rapid change. When a Jet Card member books a trip with Jet Linx, our services are guaranteed by local teams that provide consistent and professional service. Our clients find comfort in local flight teams that they know and trust. While major airlines have been forced to slash available routes and offer fewer flights between major city pairs, our private jets remain capable of accessing a network of 5,000 airports.

Jet Linx is the only private jet operator that has 19 Base terminals nationwide where clients can spend time before and after a flight.

Unparalleled privacy and security also remains a differentiator. Access to private, secure terminals makes a difference in today’s world. Jet Linx Base facilities allow clients minimal contact points to the outside world, and safety/sanitation protocols ensure a high level of protection. Our private terminals are member-only, further insulating you and your party from the general traveling public. This offers more security than a traditional FBO or a crowded commercial airport terminal.

Present and Future Success Rooted in Safety


A foundational emphasis on safety and security – both in flight operations and our business model – will allow Jet Linx to operate through and beyond these turbulent times. Our team members know that private aviation moves quickly. The ability to pivot and to enact strategic responses has been the key to success in the last twenty years of business. Our fourth annual Safety Summit is a testament to this flexibility. In light of the pandemic, the event was moved online. Its impact on our safety culture remained unchanged, as all 450+ team members across the country came together to learn from one another and focus on the tenants of safe operation.

With two decades of experience in the industry, Jet Linx understands that disruption is inevitable. Remaining proactive and meeting the needs of clients is second nature to the Jet Linx team. Each day our dedicated team members take a pulse on the landscape of private aviation and respond accordingly. As confidence grows and travel begins to return, our fleet of private jets will be ready and waiting to serve you. When you are ready to travel wisely, contact us.
