Jet Linx, the preeminent private jet management and jet card membership company in the United States, announced the grand opening of its new private terminal at Nashville International Airport (BNA). Jet Linx originally opened a terminal at BNA in 2017, but it wasn’t large enough to accommodate the rapidly increasing demand for jet card memberships as well as for the substantial growth in the number of aircraft under management in the local Jet Linx fleet. Jet Linx Nashville is the newest of the Company’s eighteen private terminals in the United States and follows the grand opening of Jet Linx New York, the Company’s private terminal at Teterboro Airport serving the greater New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area. The announcement was made by Jamie Walker, President & Chief Executive Officer of Jet Linx Aviation.
Spanning nearly 30,000 square-feet, the new hangar and members-only terminal welcomes clients with contemporary interiors designed with the spirit of Nashville in mind, featuring both modern and rustic elements. Conveniently located just eight miles from Downtown Nashville, the facility includes a private hangar, an executive lounge and a conference room decorated with rare vintage guitars from a private collection.
“Our new private terminal is the embodiment of our commitment to serve the Nashville market like no other private jet company can – by delivering guaranteed national private jet services on a local scale,” said Mr. Walker. “Trey Sutter, Base Partner and CEO of Jet Linx Nashville, and the Nashville team have done an excellent job serving our local clients over the last two years, and we’re thrilled our new private terminal will further enhance the Jet Linx experience for our clients.”
Said Mr. Sutter, “We are excited to celebrate the opening of our new private terminal in Nashville and offer our aircraft owners and jet card members a highly personalized and private experience. The number of clients we serve locally has grown significantly since our introduction to Music City in 2017 and we look forward to having the space to provide our Nashville clients the finest level of private aviation service in the Nashville market.”
More than 170 guests attended the grand opening event of the new facility, which featured hors d’oeuvres by Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse and famed Chef Trevor Moran, formerly of The Catbird Seat. Guests were invited to explore the several aircraft available for viewing, including a Bombardier Challenger 350, Cessna Citation XLS+, Cessna CJ3 and Sikorsky helicopter. Jet Linx Nashville partner, Carlock Motorcars, displayed several luxury cars, including an Aston Martin and a Rolls Royce SUV, while Darrell Waltrip, former racing driver and notable American motorsports analyst, showcased his famous silver NASCAR (known to fans as the “chrome car”), in which he competed in the 1997 Daytona 500.
