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.
Your Safety is Our Safety- In addition to providing masks to our flight crews, we are conducting supplementary training above and beyond our standard sanitation training. The added training covers safe food handling, safe garbage removal, and frequent handwashing. GAC has ordered Rapid COVID-19 Tests, giving us the ability to test crews before each flight. Additionally, we advise the team members to remain home if sick or if any symptoms arise.
Fresh Ambient Air on All Flights- We take great concern for the health of our passengers. 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. There is no recirculating air, ensuring you can breathe safely, even at 31,000 feet.
