The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the landscape of passenger aviation, sending many large commercial companies into bankruptcy and disrupting many of the routes travelers once took. During the pandemic, with commercial air travel suddenly unsafe, both leisure and business professionals were forced to find travel alternatives. Private jet charters began to rise in popularity during the pandemic, as they provide customizable services to conveniently and safely travel virtually anywhere.
Despite travel restrictions lifting and transmission rates dropping, it will take years for the travel industry to recover and return to normal after the impact of the pandemic. In particular, the commercial airline industry will struggle to regain the strength it had in 2019.
Although the pandemic has not been good for the commercial airline business, the private charter business is healthy, and all signs point to the industry continuing to grow into 2021 and beyond. Going forward, private jet companies expect to see a rise in both business and leisure travel, since chartering a private jet has become one of the most attractive ways to fly. “You are seeing Private jet companies making large investments towards growth in acquisitions, marketing, and expanded luxury offerings. This is supported by the anticipated expansion in the market. The pandemics shift in travel is here to stay and many newcomers to private aviation won’t be leaving anytime soon. says Triumph Jets CEO Arturo Gomez”.
