The number of private flights of the Czech company WAPE JETS increased significantly last year, despite the situation in aviation since the beginning of 2020. A 40 % increase was recorded in comparison with 2018 and 2019.
Closed borders in spring 2020 due to Covid-19 measures de facto stopped air traffic. Aircraft were either grounded or used for repatriation flights. These, however, did not reach the number of flights in private aviation compared to those during normal operations. This fact paralyzed operators themselves, as well as brokers. The situation began to improve in May 2020 with the gradual easing of restrictions in the Czech Republic and throughout Europe. This was also reflected in the statistics, which showed that Europeans traveled mainly in Europe during this period. This trend continued until the end of 2020.
