Private aviation has seen a remarkable surge in new passengers in the midst of the global recovery from COVID 19. The pandemic ushered in a heightened demand for safety and privacy, driving the growth of first-time flyers.
Arguably more significant than the increase in new private aviation clientele is the rate at which they have chosen to stay. Of the first-time charter clients in 2020, 96% reported that they are now inclined to continue their new use of private aviation.
While this is a positive indicator for the already expanding private aviation industry, the heightened demand for private travel does raise questions for more frequent flyers. Individuals and businesses that rely on the freedom afforded by private charter are now having to revisit their assumptions about availability and pricing from their preferred providers.
High Demand for Private Aviation Increases Jet Card Popularity
In response to the new waves of first-time private travelers, jet cards have become increasingly more popular with frequent flyers.
Jet card memberships can vary in their specific amenities, but they consistently offer distinctive benefits for clients who have ongoing travel needs. Today, we're going to highlight the industry-standard perks as well as a few more unique amenities to consider in your inquiries.
