Private aircraft charter company Eclipse Air Charter has enjoyed steady growth in 2021, attracting new clients looking for one-way flights to warm-weather destinations, and reliable, on-demand travel in uncertain times.
Particularly in Europe, where recent sudden changes or cancellations in airline services have thrown travel plans into chaos, Eclipse’s brand of personalized, on-demand service and internationally recognized ARGUS Rated Charter Broker status presents a reliable and welcome alternative for clients wary of last-minute complications.
According to reports from aviation industry research company WingX, European business jet travel is up 25% in August compared to pre-pandemic August 2019.
Eclipse has seen a marked increase in the number of bookings to summer-climate destinations like Miami and Scottsdale in the U.S., Bahamas and Turks & Caicos in the Caribbean, and Nice and Mykonos in Europe.
“People don’t want to ‘just book’ an important trip at the click of a button,” says Lily Karapetyan, Director of Charter Sales at Eclipse.
“They want to go through entry restrictions, double- and triple-check they have the correct vaccines, tests and documentation, and find out what happens if the rules change. We’ve become more like advisors rather than private jet brokers, because we’re guiding our clients through the entire process.”
As an ARGUS Rated Charter Broker, Eclipse Air Charter has undergone the globally recognized independent organization’s rigorous Charter Evaluation and Qualification process, thereby furthering its commitment to quality and safety.
“Where, when and why our clients travel may change, but their comfort and safety should never vary,” says Yasmin Alam, Eclipse Founder and Managing Director.
“We’re honoured to have achieved ARGUS Charter Broker Rating, especially at a time when health and safety is more important than ever.”
