– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines

A flash survey of subscribers to Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about more domestic terror threats in the wake of the riots at the Capitol. The research also found despite the COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally. What’s more, 96% of respondents who had started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.
The inventor of the jet card enjoyed the best sales month in its 21-year history in December. It has lofty expectations for 2021, Sentient’s CEO Andrew Collins tells Bloomberg

Don’t believe articles that technology is lowering private jet prices. Promises of cheap private jet travel are often based on misleading press releases and a lack of knowledge
Promises of cheap private jet flights invoking Uber analogies and claiming technology breakthroughs that lower charter costs are common themes of uninformed coverage. The articles are wrong. Apps don’t impact how much you will pay. In fact, most online pricing tools for private jets don’t even give you hard quotes. They are simply tools to capture your contact information so sales reps can follow-up.
Much of the charter rates you see online are estimates. And for every slick app, you’ll find if you aren’t familiar with the industry’s ins and outs, it’s easy to make big mistakes when buying private flights. With COVID-19 causing more consumers to shop for private aviation options, if you are serious, buyer beware.
