AIR CARE

Jet Linx sets a new standard in flight safety.

The coronavirus has added a new obstacle to traveling to and from Nantucket. Despite stringent social distancing measures on ferries, some feel too vulnerable to take the Steamship or Hy-Line. Even more daunting can be the idea of flying commercially. For those who don’t want to sit in their car aboard the two-hour Steamship voyage, flying private might just be the safest and certainly most luxurious option. And in that rarefied air of private jet travel, Jet Linx has pioneered the cleanest and safest way to soar.

In the face of the coronavirus, the company has taken its white-glove service to a whole new level by integrating the cutting-edge BIOPROTECTUs™ System. Developed by ViaClean Technologies, BIOPROTECTUs™ is applied to all the porous and nonporous surfaces inside the plane. After all bacteria, viruses and mold are obliterated, antimicrobial technologies are then administered to protect against bacteria for up to three months.

Jet Linx was the first private aviation company to integrate the BIOPROTECTUs™ System into its aircraft and private terminals. The antimicrobial formulation in the BIOPROTECTUs™ System has been proven by two Centers of Excellence of the Global Virus Network to kill and provide long-term residual surface protection against the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus.

For those flying from the Boston area, this sense of safety and ease is increased by the Jet Linx private terminal, which opened at Hanscom Airfield in Bedford, Massachusetts, three years ago. Instead of having to pass through the TSA at Logan Airport, Jet Linx passengers enjoy simple parking and a leisurely check-in. The private space offers a cushy lounge, conference rooms and a kitchen loaded with tasty bites and beverages.

Jet Linx has been flying to Nantucket from all its locations since the aviation company was founded. This June it is making an added commitment to the community by becoming a headlining sponsor of the Nantucket Film Festival. But its real blockbuster is found in the air. From tarmac to tarmac, Jet Linx is committed to the highest level of excellence for its members. Once aboard, passengers experience the pinnacle of private jet travel, with spectacular amenities that will make them want the hour-long flight to Nantucket to last just a few minutes longer.
