Following the opening of or plans for private terminals in three cities in the past year, aircraft charter and management firm Jet Linx broke ground this week on a new private terminal and hangar at its home base at Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, to replace its original facility. The 70,000-sq-ft complex will consist of a 10,000-sq-ft terminal and a 60,000-sq-ft hangar.
Terminal amenities will include numerous seating areas, a private meeting room, an executive lounge, and a stocked kitchenette and bar. Plans call for the new facility to open in June 2022.
“It is an incredible milestone to be breaking ground and constructing a brand-new private terminal location, just steps from where we chose to launch our first local private terminal 17 years ago,” said Jet Linx CEO Jamie Walker. “It is with great pride that we celebrate the next era of the Jet Linx brand and introduce our new flagship facility.”
This fall, Jet Linx plans to open a private terminal at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport in Florida, which will be its 20th private terminal. Last fall, Jet Linx opened a private terminal at Flying Cloud Airport near Minneapolis and one at San Antonio (Texas) International Airport in March.
The 22-year-old company offers jet cards, joint aircraft ownership, and aircraft management services.
