Data from the internet provider corresponds to other industry tracking reports showing private jet travel bouncing back
Inflight internet provider Gogo Business Aviation says last Thursday the number of daily private jet flights with its inflight connectivity reached 3,039.
While private jet traffic is at 74% of 2019 levels compared to 15% for the airlines, inside the numbers are big differences
The rebound of private jet travel from the depths of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has been one of the very few bright spots across the travel industry.
While data from the TSA shows passenger levels for the airlines are still off by around 85%, private jet flights have recovered to 74% of 2019 levels, according to WingX.
For the first seven days of June Part 135 flights reached 68% of 2019 levels while fractional flying was at 65%; Airline passengers rebounded to 15% of last year’s totals
The most recent data from Argus and the TSA shows private jet travel’s strong rebound while passenger counts for airline flights remained at just 15% of 2019 levels, although also gaining.
Comparing Argus private jet flying from this year to Memorial Day 2019 shows the strongest rebound data yet
Expectations that private jet travel will lead the recovery of air travel continued at the start of this holiday weekend.
In the latest WingX moving 7-day average, daily business aviation flights increased to 6,600 from last month’s low of 3,700
Statistics from three different researchers and the U.S. Transport Security Administration (TSA) will again give folks from the private jet side of the aviation business some reason to have pleasant dreams. Or at least blot out recent nightmares.
