Private charter during the Coronavirus outbreak
Where can I fly by private jet during the Coronavirus outbreak?
Fulfilling requests is certainly becoming more challenging in the last few days, both in terms of operational restrictions and in securing aircraft.
Of course, private jets must adhere to the same government travel directives as airlines and we cannot fulfil all of the requested routes due to passenger restrictions and border controls. Some operators and owners are not taking on certain routes, which is limiting the supply.
But being more agile and reactive than airlines, our industry is able to operate last minute flights – within what’s operationally possible.
Travel and border restrictions are increasingly being put in place but we are doing everything we can to keep passengers moving, back home or wherever they need to reach.
At PrivateFly we are taking this crisis situation extremely seriously. Our Safety Officers in both Europe and the US are working closely with our teams and our operator suppliers, so that we can continue to keep clients moving as much as we possibly can, within the travel restrictions that are increasingly being out in place – and while taking every precaution to protect the safety and health of both passengers and crews.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued a revised Safety Information Bulletin outlining recommendations for aircraft operators, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading, including additional cleaning protocols, and operational recommendations for how to handle and contain any suspected cases.
Operational protocols are changing very rapidly and our cross-functional team of specialists is meeting twice daily to review the latest data released by governments, health and aviation authorities.
