As private jet travel continues its gradual increase month-over-month, we’ve been spending time as a company evaluating and aiming to improve our service offering. We remain optimistic of improving market conditions and are planning the launch of two new programs in the fall that will help more travelers experience the benefits of private travel. In addition to aircraft management and private jet charter options, the first program will offer an aircraft lease with guaranteed availability, pricing, and no positioning cost. The second, is an air charter program that allows clients to purchase access to private jet aircraft in every category at preferred rates in blocks of 25 & 50 hours.
With the Canadian border closed to non-essential travel from the US, the North & South Bound traffic is still much slower than usual. However, we remain hopeful for a return to more normal levels this fall. According to WingX Business Aviation Intelligence, flight activity in North America is still 29% below normal, but up 20% since the start of June 2020. That said, flight activity in Florida and Arizona increased significantly compared to Canada and the rest of the US posting even higher levels than in 2019.
