Demand for private jets will continue, according to new survey

Even as the Covid pandemic winds down, a new survey of private jet users suggests no end to the record surge in private aviation demand

– Average jet card deposit increased 12% to $237,267 from January’s survey

– 53% of new private aviation users will continue to fly privately on a regular basis post-Covid, up 29% since January

A just released survey of subscribers to Private Jet Card Comparisons shows the demand surge trend for private aviation is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Both the Coronavirus pandemic and the CARES Act waiving the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax are impacting jet membership costs and terms

(Updated Nov. 20, 2020) To say the past month and a half has been a roller coaster for private aviation would be an understatement.

March started with high hopes. A spike in requests from first-timers who wanted to get to second homes or relocate family members kept activity close to normal.
