It's been documented that during this period, Volanteus has focussed our efforts upon repatriation flights, getting people safely home across the globe. This has proviced us with a unique insight into the challenges the industry will face, once private flights get back to running normally.
Prior to COVID-19, it had been indicated that only 10% of individuals that could afford to fly privately were doing so. However, it is likely that in a life after COVID-19 this statistic could drastically increase. Thus, we believe there will be an opportunity for the private jet industry to boom.
One key reason likely to cause a shift towards the private jet industry is hygiene factors. It is evident that commercial airlines are intending to sell a high capacity of their seats, which for some, may be considered unsafe following current social distancing guidelines. This is compared to private aviation providers who have been pro-active in listing critical health and safety requirements for the industry.
Inevitably a set of measures are required industry wide. Volanteus has gone one step further and created our own set of safety measures, which will be implimented on a strict basis for the health of everyone:
With these measures in place, flying privately will ensure that your loved ones are protected. One study discovered that potential exposure to COVID-19 is 30 times lower when flying privately. Thus, with little risk of contact with the virus, we are can ensure a safe, pleasant journey for our clients. Furthermore, this can be guaranteed with the launch of our new upcoming NOVUS suite, which will follow all of the strict measures above to create a safe flying experience.
We encourage those who have considered flying privately in the past to compare the safety measures of commercial flights, the various cost-effective ways of purchasing private aviation hours and ultimately Volanteus and our industry leading measures.
