As an integral part of its growth strategy and national expansion across the United States, Jet Linx acquired Elliott Aviation's private jet management business. As part of this strategy, the Company plans to acquire other respected and established private jet management companies, including planned future Base locations in Florida and California.
Throughout the year, Jet Linx continued to demonstrate its commitment to delivering the highest and most stringent safety standards in the private aviation industry. The Company hosted its third annual Safety Summit in June, voluntarily grounding its fleet of 100+ aircraft and bringing together more than 500 employees to focus on advancing safety culture and participate in a special keynote session led by Jim Hall, former National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairman. Taking safety one step further, Jet Linx also hosted its first-ever Aviation Safety Symposium. The event invited industry partners to share, educate and advance safety efforts in Part 135 operations.
