“We have seen an uptick in enquiries over the last few weeks for destinations such as Portugal and those returning to the UK from abroad, largely from clients who own JetCards, allowing them to buy travel hours without fixed dates with the facility to cancel with 24 hours’ notice,” Briffa added
“Multi-generation holidays, belated celebrations, a desire to explore once again, combined with concerns about crowded terminals are reasons more clients are booking private jets, which operate as a ‘flying bubble’ offering speed, convenience and luxury.
“Reflecting anticipation for a resumption of international travel, over the past two months Air Partner has seen new clients in the UK adding flying hours to JetCards, which can be used for helicopter or winged aircraft, and a 15% rise in sales and renewals year-on-year.
“Air Partner experienced a 321% increase in people interested in private flying during the Summer of 2020 as many COVID-19 restrictions lifted.
“We expect private travel will continue to grow in popularity and look forward to welcoming new and returning clients who have eagerly awaited a change of scenery.
As an extension to our services, Air Partner can assist clients with organising PCR tests.
“Private aviation is and has always been one of the most reliable and safest modes of transportation, especially during the pandemic.”
