Germs On A Plane: Don’t read this unless you can afford to fly by private jet

Private jet companies say the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has generated first-time customers. They may return due to health safety concerns…

It’s not just avoiding fellow passengers in confined spaces of airport terminals and airplanes

A CBC report found nearly half of the surfaces swabbed on airline flights contained levels of bacteria or yeast and mold that could put a person at risk for infection

With no cure or vaccine for the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the private jet industry is expecting (or hoping for) an influx of new customers when the stay-at-home orders expire and hotels and resorts reopen.

Right now many private jet users are grounded with no place to go. However, they apparently want to get back in the air. Research by Private Jet Card Comparisons shows only 3% of subscribers have canceled summer vacations with no plans to reschedule. It’s also expected those who can afford it, will want to maximize their social distancing while traveling for the foreseeable future.

According to Thrillist, “Airplanes are notorious for being giant flying petri dishes. The rush to turn flights around in mere moments, day in and day out, makes them akin to a bath towel you always air-dry but never wash.”

Private aviation is forecast to be down close to 70% this month. Still, that number cloaks a significant portion of flying since the COVID-19 outbreak has been by new customers relocating to second homes or evacuating family members.

Using private aviation for your business can help boost efficiency, employee retention, sales and profits

Many companies that could benefit from using private jets or even turboprops eschew private flying for a myriad of reasons, which are easy to understand.

However, those reasons could be costing you growth in sales and profits. You could also be losing key employees!

First of all, there is a negative stereotype about private jet travel, mainly that it’s environmentally unfriendly.

The fact is that all aviation is only 2% of global emissions. Business aviation is just 2% of that 2% number.
