The world’s largest private jet operator has released a summary of both precautions it is taking as well as current travel restrictions

As more and more airlines cut back on their flight schedules due to government restrictions and plummeting demand, NetJets and other private aviation providers continue to offer critical links in these challenging times.

In an update posted yesterday on its website, the world’s largest private jet operator wrote, “The COVID-19 pandemic has created a constantly changing landscape at NetJets. We will continue to issue operational updates as they become available, but we wanted to take a moment to provide reassurance that we are taking all necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus and continue to keep our owners and our employees safe.”

No doubt, many of those involved in manufacturing private jets recall fondly 2008. That’s when the industry delivered 1,317 new business jets. It was an increase from 2007’s then-record mark of 1,137 new private jets delivered. That busted the 2006 numbers, also a then-record of 887 units delivered.

With the Great Recession, deliveries of new private jets dropped to 874 units in 2009, even more to 767 in 2010, then 696 in 2011, before bottoming out in 2012 at 672 aircraft.

The Phenom 300 and its updated brother, the Phenom 300E, are the best selling light jet type in the past decade.

It is popular with individual owners, and also fractional share and charter fleet operators selling jet cards. It has a high resale value – if you can buy one. There are only 16 on the market. That’s a mere 3.6% of the fleet.

NetJets and Flexjet agree

The list of operators is a who’s who, including the industry’s biggest players. NetJets and Flexjet agree on few things. They both selected the Phenom 300 as their core light jet option.
