A look back at who received CARES Act Payroll Support Payments

CARES Act private aviation recipients

The Payroll Support Program under Division A, Title IV, Subtitle B of the CARES Act provided payroll support to passenger air carriers, cargo air carriers, and certain contractors for the continuation of payment of employee wages, salaries, and benefits. Here’s who got how much

It’s uncertain when there will be more government for the airline industry, and if so, will it extend to the private aviation side?

While the CARES Act payments have been widely credited for helping business jet operators get back on their feet quickly, they also have detractors, including NetJets, the largest private jets operator.

Read the full Europe Travel Ban proclamation from President Trump at the end of the story

Last night’s Trump Travel Ban forbidding foreign nationals from entering the United States for 30 days starting tomorrow at midnight is likely to force the airlines to cancel more trans-Atlantic flights.

The directive, issued during an Oval Office address from President Donald J. Trump, bans foreign nationals from Europe’s 26 Schengen countries from entering the U.S. It also bans other foreigners who have visited any of the countries 14 days prior attempting entry into the U.S. The ban is set to last 30 days.

Air Partner predicts Jet Cards will be a top growth segment for 2020

Jet cards 2020

The U.K.-based on-demand charter and jet card broker sees strong growth for the U.S. and across many of its sectors

Air Partner is somewhat unique in the field of more than 55 jet card providers we track. It’s publicly traded, albeit in the U.K.

There are other jet card suppliers located within publicly traded companies – Delta Private Jets until its acquisition by Wheels Up, NetJets is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, and Jet Aviation by General Dynamics. However, results aren’t broken out in financials as they are with Air Partner.

Another difference is the diversity of the services it offers, from private and large group charters to freight, fatigue risk management, compliance and safety performance, bird control and wildlife management for airports, plus crisis emergency planning and evacuation.
