A New Year, A New Beginning
2010 Shines Hope On Private Jet Travel
The holidays are over, and 2010 has arrived. With the coming of the New Year optimism and cheerful outlooks abound. While the charter jet industry is still smarting from the PR punishment it took in 2009, some significant signs point to a much better 2010 and 2011.
The economy seems to be stabilizing after a very tumultuous year of highs and lows. While it is not back to pre-2008-burst levels, at the moment it appears to have settled down quite a bit. Travel budgets can be planned, staffing levels have stabilized, and corporate travel is increasing again. Let’s face it, sales still have to be made, and clients still need to be visited – and there is no more efficient way to do that than aboard a private jet.CASE STUDY
Private air travel has been on the uptick month over month since June 2009 and all indications point to a continuance of that trend in 2010. As we move further into the year some in the industry project flight levels and private jet demand to rebound significantly.
Let’s not forget the leisure factor as record cold temperatures settle in across most of the US. Many clients prefer the ease and simplicity of travel via private jet charter as opposed to the odious and often delayed/cancelled commercial flights during the winter travel season. There are few security hassles simply because you know everyone on your plane. Imagine how easy and pleasant flying would be when you are able to pull up next to your plane, flash a photo ID, board and depart within 5 minutes. Certainly, taking a private jet on the family trip to Disney, Aspen, The Superbowl, or the Olympic Winter Games is going to be more expensive that commercial travel, but sometime you just can’t put a price on quality time with your family.
And that is precisely what private aviation is all about – diminishing unproductive and wasteful time at commercial airports and aboard airliners, while increasing productivity and quality time in the air.
