The Lynx FBO network has completed two acquisitions at Anoka County-Blaine Airport, Minnesota. The company, part of the Sterling Group, a middle-market private equity firm based in Houston, Texas, simultaneously acquired Cirrus Flight Operations and Key Air Twin Cities. The FBOs are close to the US Bank Stadium, which will host the Super Bowl in 2018.
In August 2016, Sterling launched Lynx in order to create its own line of FBOs. The Cirrus and Key locations at Anoka marked the third and fourth acquisitions in its first four months of operations. It also has locations in Destin, Florida and Portland, Oregon, and is actively looking for more facilities across North America.
Tyson Goetz, a partner with Lynx, said, “Key Air Twin Cities has developed world class FBO terminal and hangar facilities, a state-of-the-art fuel farm, and a large ramp capable of handling significant aircraft activity in a safe and efficient manner. Those attributes combined with the Lynx team’s experience in handling special events, the ease of access to US Bank Stadium, and a group of talented employees joining our team from both Cirrus and Key, make Lynx the optimal location to serve our customers during the 2018 Super Bowl.”
