International Travel During the Pandemic: A 2021 Update

International Travel Requirements During the COVID-19 Pandemic

International Travel

International travel is changing on a day-to-day basis as countries shift their methods to contain and mitigate the COVID-19 global pandemic. While some countries continue to restrict travel, others have relaxed their guidelines in favor of stringent testing requirements for entry. Global Air Charters is on alert 24/7 to ensure your travels are on schedule and all documents you may need are in hand, saving you time.

New Regulations on International Travel into the United States

The United States has recently adopted new guidelines for entry following travel outside its borders. The new regulations are now in effect to ensure passenger and crew safety. Endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control (42 CFR 71.20), this new order requires all passengers traveling by air to the United States from a foreign country to have documentation of a negative COVID-19 test or recovery from the virus. The United States requires this documentation for all passengers over the age of 2 years. Flight crews must review each passenger’s documents prior to departure for the United States. Global Air Charters has a commitment to keeping its passengers and crew safe by following all required regulations.

International TravelPresenting Negative Test Results for International Travel

One of the documentation options is to provide a negative COVID-19 test result.  The test must be either a standard PCR or a rapid Antigen test from a certified test source. Additionally, the test must be taken within three calendar days prior to departure to the United States. One more requirement of the documentation is that the name and date of birth on the test result must match the passenger’s passport and other travel documents. Many hotels and resorts are now including this testing in their vacation packages.

Recovery Documentation

Another option is to provide a recovery document. A traveler may provide documentation of a positive viral test taken within the three months before departure, in addition to a letter of recovery signed by a licensed doctor. The letter must be on official letterhead with the signator’s name and contact information.  Passengers must have met the full isolation requirements for consideration to travel into the United States. Finally, as with the negative test results, the name and birth date on the documents must match the passenger’s passport and other travel documentation.GAC Covid-19 Masks international travel

The Private Flight Difference

Flights on a private aircraft have some district differences from First Class seats on a commercial jet.

Flying with a charter company allows for greater amenities, such as a personally curated itinerary and the flexibility to help you make the most of your journey.

Increased luggage capacity is also a benefit to private travel, and passengers will never be charged for an extra bag.  The safety standards implemented on each private flight are unmatched by commercial airlines, and travelers are able to reduce possible exposure to illness with fewer people on the flight.

Streamline Private Jet Travel with the GAC LUX CardLux Card - Premium Jet Card for Private Charter Flights

GAC GV interior
Gulfstream GV Cabin

The GV’s Unmatched Prestige

Impress your colleagues and clients with the unmatched prestige of a private flight in our Gulfstream GV jets. Not only does the cabin offer roomy seating, but it also hosts three passenger zones. The separated zones are optimal for simultaneous meetings and privacy. Comfortable seating, table space, and a quiet environment offer an excellent space to get work done. The ability to work in an optimal setting maximizes your time. Furthermore, Global Air Charters offers WiFi, so you never have to miss an important call, email, or meeting. Another notable amenity available is the 10″ and 20″ monitors. These monitors are usable for meetings or to watch video entertainment. The full-service galley and custom catering provided ensures passengers won’t go hungry.

Pillows and blankets are available by request on each GV. These items provide passengers with the utmost comfort possible. The aircraft’s comfortable leather seating perpetuates the high-class feel of the cabin. The flight crew greets all passengers warmly and ensures every need is met with a smile. The staff is committed to making your flight as enjoyable as possible. Relax as the crew transports you to your chosen destination in style and safety.

Superior Performance Available on the GV

Global Air Charters’ GV jets can fly up to 14 hours with a range of 6,500 Nautical Miles or 7,450 Statue Miles. This extended distance provides a substantially larger list of destinations attainable with non-stop flights—for example, a flight from NYC to Tokyo, Japan.

Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, the new Gulfstreams will meet your needs. Both GV jets have the ability to transport 2500 lbs. of baggage, in addition to 16 passengers. The spacious cabin extends 44 feet, with the ceiling at 6’2″ in the walkway. Additionally, the walkway is no squeeze, as the cabin’s width is 7′ 3″. The advanced engines and flight technology provide efficient and powerful travel, with superior safety.

Safety at the Forefront

Global Air Charters’ cabin attendants are safety experts through continual training. They serve to ensure the highest standards are kept on every jet, and the GVs are no exception. The dedicated maintenance team regularly verifies all parts of every aircraft are in excellent condition and stays up to date with any changes to each model in the fleet. Moreover, every pilot on the Global Air Charters’ crew has extensive flight experience and is up to date with all safety standards.

“As with the ability to secure aircraft that can get you to where you need non-stop, it’s essential the flight crews are Pilot In Command Qualified, deeply experienced in over ocean air travel and the operations team familiar in the nuances of international airports, permitting and fees. Meet one of the team, Michael Vanacore-Netz, Global Air Charters’ Chief Pilot. Michael’s credentials include more than 3,500 hours of flight time with over 2000 hours in Gulfstreams covering more than 40 countries.

Make the Most of Your Flight on a GV

Customer service is Global Air Charters’ top priority. Every flight crew takes extra steps to ensure your comfort. The cabin is an optimal space for conducting business and can also be utilized for small events.  One customer requested a birthday party on the flight, which the team was excited to host. A cake, balloons, and streamers helped transform the atmosphere as the crew helped make the passenger’s vision a reality.

Expands Despite Uncertain Times

Despite the uncertainty and challenges presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic, Global Air Charters has expanded its staff and fleet. Since January 1, 2020, 16 pilots, four cabin attendants, two maintenance crew members, and one office employee have been added. 2021 is no different, and five more pilots will be added to the crew within the next two months. Additional staff members translate to increased availability for your travel needs. Furthermore, it guarantees the company’s ability to put the employee’s health in line with the passenger’s health.

Sanitation is Always Top of Mind

The demand for exemplary safety has increased tenfold within the last year. Many are now looking for private jet services to travel to reduce exposure risks. Safety is a top priority for the crew and passengers on all flights at Global Air Charters.

Every table, ledge, countertop, railing, video screen, cup holder, doorknob, vent, passenger button, and lavatory on the Gulfstream GV jets are thoroughly cleaned after each flight.  The disinfectants used follow CDC and EPA guidelines and are standard on every jet. Hand sanitizer is available to crew and passengers at all times, in addition to soap and water for handwashing. The GV’s cabins are refreshed with ambient air every 4-6 minutes. Furthermore, the jets never have recirculated air introduced into the cabin.

All of the staff wear masks and complete a rapid COVID-19 test before every flight. Additionally, the crew practices safe food handling, garbage disposal and properly wash their hands often. Additionally, Global Air Charters has a policy of encouraging employees to stay home if they feel sick, further lessening the likelihood of spreading illness.

Expanding Your Journey Choices with a GV

One of the largest advantages of adding two Gulfstream GV jets to Global Air Charters’ fleet is expanding its available private jet destinations. Full- size aircraft have limited destinations, while private jets have a significantly greater list of airports they can travel to and from. Therefore, passengers may have the opportunity to get closer to their final destination when flying with a private aircraft company. Moreover, travel with a private charter provides a personal itinerary planned by an experienced team, whose goal is saving time and expenses for each passenger.

On-The-Ground Transportation & Conveniences

A smooth transition from takeoff to landing is just a piece of the international travel experience. Experienced international private jet crews can ensure an efficient and safe journey. The team at Global Air Charters doesn’t solely reserve this level of service to the time passengers are in the air but seamlessly includes the experience of time on the ground. The crew is highly vetted before joining the team and continually upholds superior customer service, which is classically expected from Global Air Charters.

Don’t Let Airline Furloughs Ruin Your Holiday Travel Plans

As airline furloughs begin across the country, holiday travelers face reduced airline support during this busy travel season.

The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to disrupt travel plans worldwide, and now U.S. airline furloughs add another layer of complexity to the impending holiday travel season.  Following the expiration of a federal prohibition on job cuts, around 32,000 employees have been furloughed since the beginning of October. Airlines have already struggled with shrinking workforces, fewer passengers, and limited travel, ultimately costing over $10 billion in lost revenue since the pandemic started earlier this year. With the holidays approaching, many ask the common question, “Is there a safe way to travel home for the holidays?”. Private jet charter travel has increased during the pandemic due to its health and safety measures.

GAC Holiday Travel

Private Jet Travel is Rising During COVID-19

Private Jet Travel COVID-19

Private Aviation is Changing the Game When it Comes to COVID-19 Jet Travel

First-class commercial passengers are migrating to private jet travel due to safety, peace of mind, and additional benefits that business jets offer. Due to COVID-19 circumstances, business and recreational travelers are now opting for private charter to reduce exposure without hindering their agendas. These travelers include high-net-worth individuals with the financial means to pursue charter travel options over commercial aviation. Despite being apprehensive of the financial discrepancies between these flight options, the health and safety of travelers remain an uncompromised luxury. Health and safety are at the forefront of every customer’s mind when booking travel, and reports show that the demand is climbing.

With a heightened awareness of overall well-being, it is understandable why travelers wish to avoid crowded planes and airports. Affluent travelers seek comfort in the intimate settings provided by FBO’s (Fixed Base Operator) and private charters. Additionally, businesses who would ordinarily fly their executives on first-class commercial flights, now consider it safer to travel on a private aircraft. Peace of mind is undoubtedly at the forefront of knowing that private travel potentially reduces their risk of illness.

Keeping You Safe, Without Compromising Your Travel Schedule

With more individuals trending towards the “safety bubble” of private jet travel, Global Air Charters would like to remind all of our customers that our Number 1 priority is safety for our passengers and employees. Even though it has always been standard practice to thoroughly clean the cabin, galley, and lavatory after every GAC flight, we are extra vigilant, retraining staff, and standardizing our cleaning products during this heightened awareness to ensure they are consistent with CDC recommendations. With all of the concerns related to the COVID-19, we would like to share with you the steps we are taking to ensure you have both a safe and comfortable flying experience.

Clean Aircraft – GAC thoroughly disinfects all surfaces on our aircraft after each flight using EPA-recommended disinfectant products, per CDC guidance. Our disinfection process includes all tables, countertops, ledges, video screens, cup holders, railings, doorknobs, passenger buttons, vents, and the lavatory.

GAC’s COVID-19 Precautions: Your Health & Safety is our Highest Priority

At Global Air Charters, our No. 1 priority is safety for our passengers and employees. Although it has always been standard practice to thoroughly clean the cabin, galley, and lavatory after every GAC flight, during this time of heightened awareness, we are being extra vigilant, retraining staff, and standardizing our cleaning products to ensure they are consistent with CDC recommendations. With all of the concerns related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), we would like to share with you the steps we are taking to ensure you have a healthy and comfortable flying experience.

Our Aircraft

We thoroughly disinfect all surfaces after each flight using EPA-recommended disinfectant products, per CDC guidance. Our disinfection process includes all tables, countertops, ledges, video screens, cup holders, railings, doorknobs, drawer latches, passenger buttons, vents, and the lavatory. All pillows and blankets have been removed from the cabin and will be available only upon request. We launder all pillowcases and blankets after each use to ensure the highest cleanliness for your flight. We provide hand sanitizer on our airplanes for crew and passenger use, in addition to soap and water for handwashing.

Our Gulfstream compartment air is replenished with ambient air every 4-6 minutes, per Gulfstream. There is no recirculating air.

Our Crews

We are conducting reminder training with crews on safe food handling, safe garbage removal, and the importance of frequent hand washing. We take great concern for the health of our crew and passengers. Our crew members are advised to remain home if sick or if any symptoms arise.

The Private Jet Advantage

Flying private enables you to avoid large crowds and long lines. When you fly with GAC, you embark and disembark the airplane at a small private facility known as a Fixed Based Operator (FBO), reducing your exposure to potentially ill individuals.

Thank you for your trust in Global Air Charters. Your health and well-being is our highest priority. Please contact us for any charter requests or questions you might have. We are here to assist you.

Nextant 400XTi is the Newest Addition to the GAC Fleet

Coming Soon… Global Air Charters Adds a Nextant 400XTi to the Fleet

Global Air Charters, Inc. is adding another aircraft to its growing fleet. GAC announces the acquisition of a Nextant 400XTi that will add to the capabilities of its current fleet. Chief Pilot Michael Vanacore-Netz had this to say about the recent acquisition. “This is the second light jet in the GAC fleet. The management team here all believe that this aircraft will complement our long-range aircraft quite well. Additionally, it will give us added exposure to a market that we currently do not serve with our current long-range fleet. I’m really happy at the direction we’re taking with this new aircraft.”

Expanding Our Wings with a Light Jet

The Nextant 400XTi is a 7-passenger light business jet with a typical range of 1800 nautical miles. With an average flight being just over 3 hours between 43 and 45 thousand feet at a speed of Mach .75 the aircraft is capable of connecting city pairs such as New York to Miami, Chicago to Nashville, Denver to San Francisco, or Boston to West Palm Beach. Pat Diaz the Director of Sales indicated his eagerness to get the aircraft into service. “I really like what this aircraft can do for the growth of the company. Every day we’re seeing more and more light jet requests and I’m very confident that this aircraft will fit in nicely with our current clients and current demand.” In conclusion, Global Air Charters is hopeful to begin service with its newest aircraft in Q1 of 2020.

Additionally, if you are interested in being a part of the Nextant flight crew please visit our careers page and apply online!
