Jet Linx Announces the 2020 Renewal of its ARGUS Platinum Rating
Jet Linx is pleased to announce the Company has once again achieved the prestigious ARGUS Platinum Rating, placing Jet Linx in the upper five percent of over 1,000 U.S.-based charter operators. Since 2007, Jet Linx has continued to receive consecutive platinum ratings, signifying a status of safety held only by an elite group of operators around the globe.
The ARGUS Platinum Rating is the highest level of the ARGUS audit standard and is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance. The ARGUS Platinum Rating consists of an audit that takes an in-depth look into the quality of documented processes in place, in addition to the strength of the Safety Management System implemented by the operation. Receiving a Platinum rating means the operation was examined over several days by a team of on-site auditors and subsequently completed all corrective actions necessary to meet the standard.
“The renewal of our ARGUS Platinum Rating demonstrates our unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety of our clients, pilots and team,” said Jamie Walker, Jet Linx President & CEO. “Safety has been the cornerstone of our company for more than 20 years, and we remain dedicated to advancing safety efforts and operations across the private aviation industry.”
Added Sheryl Clarke, Jet Linx Director of Safety and Security: “At Jet Linx, safety is more than a standard that must be met – it’s a promise to exceed what’s necessary. Safety is our number one priority and we pride ourselves on meeting the highest level of safety standards and taking a proactive approach to developing strategies that further advance passenger and employee safety.”
Jet Linx is one of the few privation aviation companies to have a robust Safety Management System (SMS) that has continued to evolve over the years through new leadership and programs. It remains the only airline to voluntarily ground its fleet of 100-plus aircraft each year to host a day-long Safety Summit, connecting all employees across the nation to advance the company’s safety culture. In addition to the ARGUS Platinum designation, Jet Linx continues to hold IS-BAO Stage 3 and Wyvern Wingman certifications.
