“In the first week of March,there was a 30% increase in estimates through our private jet cost calculator, along with a 20% increase in booking requests, which is not at all typical for this time of year.”
“The industry is expecting a surge in demand with a potential drop in supply due to increased aircraft utilization by owners.”
“We hope that charter operators are ethically responsible when it comes to pricing, should the market shift in this manner. While we have not seen a change in pricing yet, we do anticipate it as the situation worsens.”
With social media only amplifying concerns about the coronavirus, the private aviation industry finds itself entering uncharted territory. Concerned flyers, especially those already uncomfortable with the mass transit-like elements that accompany mainstream air travel, are finding themselves more reluctant than ever to queue up in long security lines or sit packed in waiting areas, surrounded by coughing passengers coming from parts unknown.
And now with spring break season upon, countless family vacations hang in the balance, with some concerned parents looking into last-minute alternatives, including switching over to using private jets.
“Clients are absolutely trying to find alternative ways to get to their spring break destinations.”
“With us, you drive up, board your aircraft, and you are off…the same ease awaits your arrival.”
Not having to deal with a crowded airport is another upside to flying private.
Utilizing remote/smaller airports allows the client to avoid large crowds and spending prolonged periods of time in closed confined spaces with a large number of people, populated destinations (or) airports minimizes public exposure.”
Cleaning the aircraft is down to a science too, using “professional aircraft detailing services that use two specific methods of disinfecting aircraft interiors and the interior surface wipe-downs, the leather seats are cleaned with a disinfectant cleaner, that contains a pH level friendly enough for the leather, while also killing 99.9% of bacteria. For the ozone cleaning method, an ozone generator is set up in the cabin with circulation fans for four hours with the cabin sealed. The aircraft cabin is then aired out to remove any ozone that has not yet returned to the original O2 form.”
