The Argus and Wyvern accredited broker of jet cards and
on-demand charter released customer trends from Q1 2019
PrivateFly, which recently absorbed sister Directional Aviation broker Skyjet recently, said its customers were booking further in advance, flying in larger jets, spending more, but taking fewer people with them.

PrivateFly is offering fixed by the flight private jet charter pricing for key European city pairs this summer, on specified routes to and from London, Paris, Nice, Rome, Milan, Geneva, Palma, and Ibiza. The flights are on the Nextant 400XTi light jet. During the winter it had tested the concept between London and Geneva appealing to the U.K. ski market headed to Switzerland.
