The Super Bowl’s reign as champion of private jet travel may end this year, according to a prediction by Air Charter Service
While the U.S. government may not be contributing to the private jet count at the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos due to the current shutdown, Air Charter Service, a broker that sells jet cards and on-demand charter, says it will still be a record showing. The company predicts there will be 1,500 private jet flights over the week.
Big events like the Academy Awards, Super Bowl, All-Star Games and holidays take the newest and nicest private jets out of the On-Demand Charter inventory
A string of high profile events beginning this week with the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, Super Bowl LII on February 4, then New York Fashion Week (Feb. 8 to 18), the Winter Olympics in South Korea from Feb 9 to 25, Paris Fashion Week, starting Feb. 27, and the 90th Academy Awards on March 4 are putting extra demand on private jet inventory. In addition, there is Valentine’s Day, the Miami Boat Show, the NBA All-Star Game Feb. 18 in Los Angeles and the upcoming NHL All-Star Weekend in Tampa. And don’t forget Spring Training for Major League Baseball starts in Florida and Arizona on Feb. 23. Oh, and of course, lots of folks escaping the cold to beach destinations or looking for some powder on the ski slopes.
