Global Private Aviation Leader Provides Expert Guidance and Advice
to Help Clients Navigate the Changing Travel Landscape
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – May 27, 2020 – As governments across the globe begin to ease COVID-19 restrictions, Air Partner’s global private aviation team saw more than a 210% increase in request volumes for future flight bookings during May, compared to last May. This uptick in inquiries is for private flights heading into June through August, with many clients – ranging from individuals to corporations – seeking alternative solutions for flying to frequented leisure destinations or traveling for essential business matters. With Air Partner’s accumulated expertise spanning the past 60 years, the company is able to offer unparalleled guidance to travelers flying during the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure that every detail of their trip is expertly managed.
“We’re dedicated to delivering a memorable and safe private aviation experience for our clients. With the world facing unprecedented challenges today, we know our clients truly appreciate the added levels of assurance and operational excellence we’re able to provide for their flights,” said David McCown, president of Air Partner U.S. “We expect that as the travel industry rebounds, private aviation will be extremely busy, including an influx of those who have never flown privately before due to the enhanced safeguarding measures in place. As that time comes, travelers can rest assured that they’re in safe and experienced hands with Air Partner.”
When booking a flight with Air Partner, travelers work closely with a dedicated account manager who coordinates all aspects of the flight logistics. Available 24/7, Air Partner’s expert team is kept fully briefed on all COVID-19 developments, including the latest in local laws, health regulations, travel restrictions and airport openings. Through its dedicated Safety & Security division, Air Partner uses Redline Assured Security to offer travel advice using both human and AI-driven intelligence to assess and mitigate risk for clients flying amid COVID-19.
Recently, Air Partner demonstrated its experience managing new stringent health protocols and logistical challenges on a private flight for a corporation that needed to transport employees for a ship crew rotation near Italy. As part of its new “Air Partner Protect” program, a paramedic was made available on-site prior to take-off to conduct health screenings with a scanned temperature reading for crew and passengers. The passengers were also socially distanced on board with spaced seating arrangements. In addition, Air Partner’s charter specialists coordinated between the origin airport, which was closed due to travel restrictions, to open specifically for the flight, and then also made arrangements for the passengers to bypass the arrival airport terminal and proceed directly to their vessel.
With commercial airlines drastically cutting their schedules and also, less nonstop routes available, Air Partner offers flying programs that meet the needs of those who have to travel more frequently. With offerings such as a JetCard membership and tailored Corporate Shuttle Program, clients can fly according to any unique flight requirements. Frequent flyers may prefer to fly at a fixed hourly rate with Air Partner’s JetCard membership – the most flexible program of its kind on the market – to get between cities conveniently for essential business meetings, family visits and other critical trips. Additionally, groups seeking viable air transportation options for inter-office employee travel and remote crew movements are scheduling flights with Air Partner’s Corporate Shuttle Program, either arranging their private flights as a regularly scheduled series of flights or on an as-needed basis.
