LandJet Expands New Routes with Access to 21 Metro Areas Across Midwest with New TerminalsMarch 12, 2020
KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 11, 2020 — LandJet expands its innovative mobile offices and business travel service with the opening of two terminals, Chicago and Kansas City. LandJet adds these to the current Des Moines and Quad Cities terminal and now has direct access and business “flights” to over 21 metropolitan areas across the Midwest. “Our customers are enjoying savings, door-to-door productivity, and the opportunity to collaborate using a LandJet versus the hassles and inefficiencies of traditional travel. With our expansion, we can now deliver these benefits to more business travelers while expanding our footprint for existing customers,” said Scott Frigon, who recently joined the company as President & CEO.
LandJet is a unique business travel service addressing the problems of regional travel today. The company combines their custom mobile office with a “pilot” network to create a whole new travel experience. The LandJet is a modified conversion van outfitted with the business traveler’s needs in mind. LandJet currently has two different models – the Rolling Boardroom & the Rolling Executive – designed with a conference room feel. Both models have a conference table, refrigerator for complimentary water, onboard WiFi, and two televisions that can be used to watch more than 70 channels of live television. Each van is also equipped with a conveniently located HDMI cable to connect a computer (or other electronic devices) to both televisions for team collaboration, presentations and/or video conferencing. All trips are chauffeured by LandJet’s professional crew of “Pilots” providing a safe and comfortable environment for teams to avoid the headaches of typical business travel and “get more done” while saving money and time.
LandJet was founded in 2005 in Elkhart, Indiana by John Dingle to design, build and sell mobile offices to an emerging mobile productivity market. Identifying the need for an alternative to regional business travel, Mark Ross and Jim Thomson purchased LandJet in 2018 and expanded operations to include chauffeured service. In January of 2019, service began in the Quad Cities and expanded to Des Moines in March of 2019. In January 2020, Scott Frigon joined the company as President & CEO to lead the company’s growth into its next chapter. Mr. Thomson continues to serve as the company’s Chairman in Bettendorf and Mr. Frigon serves as President & CEO based in Kansas City.
