European on-demand charter broker LunaJets announced it is supporting the World Bicycle Relief Association as part of its corporate social responsibility programs. The move reflects the industry’s strong penchant for helping out and giving back. Last year, private jet owners provided over 15,000 flights for humanitarian relief reasons while 25% of business aviation pilots flew at least one humanitarian relief mission.
The capacity strained market of large aircraft available for charter is getting a boost as Crystal has changed course and will fully offer its VIP Crystal Skye Boeing 777-200LR on the charter market. Previously the widebody jet which will be delivered new in August was slated to operate a series of private jet tours beginning with an around-the-world itinerary stopping at every Peninsula Hotel.
