Private jet CEOs talk trends, challenges, opportunities at Corporate Jet Investor

Phenom 300#

Private jet capacity, pricing, labor, consolidation, demand, investment, new jet owners, offer challenges and opportunities for private aviation providers

Over 450 industry CEOs and leaders gathered last week in Miami for Corporate Jet Investor. For two days they hashed about issues relevant to the overall industry, with a large focus on private jet travelers who fly via jet cards, memberships, and charter.

Is the current record level of demand here to stay? Where will the industry find the capacity to meet that demand? Is more consolidation coming? How many big players are there left to buy? What is Amazonian pricing? When will the supply chain improve? Where have all the pilots – and line workers gone? Are they coming back? How will all the outside investment impact private aviation? What about on-time performance? What type of changes will you see to your jet card program? With dwindling supply, are small brokers on life support?

Record Demand Means A New Normal, New Rules For Private Jet Flyers

You’re busy. You’re paying a lot of money to fly privately so you can save time and not be inconvenienced. If you have experienced delays and service lapses – or have flights booked in the next few weeks or possibly months, I’ll start with the bottom line: Private aviation is not immune to the same issues that businesses across America and around the world are experiencing.
