Caribbean private aviation arrivals to the Caribbean are up 53% in June, compared to 2019, according to WingX. And year-to-date – through June 1, the region’s private jet numbers are 1% ahead of the pre-pandemic results of two years ago. With the average private jet flight bringing over $80,000 in spending, these arrivals are critical for the local economies. However, the results by country vary widely.

The Bahamas stays open for private jets
