If there was ever a time to charter a private jet, a pandemic is probably that time. (Assuming you can afford it, and don't mind the environmental impact, of course.) Beginning March 4, a new luxury private terminal is making it easier than ever for San Antonio travelers to fly the fancy skies.
Jet Linx, a private jet management and Jet Card membership company, is now operating a private terminal in San Antonio International Airport, a sprawling 4,000-square-foot space reserved exclusively for Jet Linx passengers. Among the private terminal's amenities:
- central lobby with multiple workstations
- private conference room
- fully stocked kitchenette and refreshment bar
- four additional office spaces
A light, airy design "features ample open space and large glass windows that line the building" while the adjoining 30,000-square-foot hangar comes equipped with industrial fans to keep temperatures comfortable inside the space.
"Our new location allows us to deliver an elevated private jet experience and an expanded array of amenities," said Steve Gentry, Jet Linx San Antonio Base vice president. "Every aspect of our Jet Linx San Antonio terminal has been designed to meet and exceed the needs of our customers and team, and we look forward to providing our high-end personalized services, convenience and safety to new and existing clients in the region."
Though Jet Linx has operated its private jet service in San Antonio since 2011, the company said the region's recent growth made it an ideal candidate for the new terminal. Planning for the luxe space began in 2018 and construction was completed in fall of last year.
"San Antonio has proven to be an extremely impactful market for Jet Linx, having doubled in membership within its first three years of operating and witnessing consistent growth," said Jamie Walker, president and CEO of Jet Linx, in a release. "For the past decade, our San Antonio Base team has excelled in providing both luxury and convenience to our local clients and we are excited to deliver an enhanced Five-Star experience, from arrival to take-off."
Along with San Antonio, the Omaha, Nebraska-based company also has base locations in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston, as well as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York, Omaha, Scottsdale, St. Louis, Tulsa, and Washington, D.C.
