Taking a Look at the Latest Private Jet Trends

private jet trends

There are so many changes taking place in the world around us – and private travel is no exception. Today we take a deeper look at the latest private jet trends for 2022. Read below for more…  

When the COVID-19 pandemic appeared, the travel industry was significantly impacted. Even after commercial airlines took to the skies again, many were scared to travel – as flying on board with hundreds of others when a deadly virus was spreading throughout our communities just didn’t sound like a smart idea. Not to mention that when things did begin to calm down, the number of unruly passengers increased greatly and the flow of air traffic seemed to be disrupted all too frequently. 

While the need to travel didn’t change for many people during the pandemic, the way they traveled did. Some decided to drive. Many others opted to fly on a private jet. And from this, a new movement of private travel was born. After all, once you experience all the perks that come with this luxury way of flying, it is hard to ever go back to flying commercial. 

Let’s take a look at the latest private jet travel trends.

New Private Travelers

As we mentioned, more and more people have turned to private jet charters for their travel needs. And as news of this spreads, the growth in the number of private travelers increases. 

Many charter companies have now geared their marketing efforts toward a broader audience. They focus on the health, safety, and accessibility of flying privately, but they also lay out all the benefits, too. Less contact with others, less time spent waiting in the security line, less travel time, private, luxurious accommodations, and more. 

No longer is private travel only for the elite as travelers discover just how affordable and accessible it is. 

Safer Sanitation Practices

Sanitation has become a greater concern than ever before – especially when flying. Keeping people safe is important and many private jet companies have taken to implementing safer sanitation practices to do just that. 

What can give travelers a greater sense of ease is that one can have a lot more confidence in a team that is sanitizing a jet after one passenger than after 230 passengers. And these intensive sanitizing efforts don’t just take place on the jet, but throughout the FBO, too. What’s more, many use regular COVID-19 testing as a preventative measure for those who have not been vaccinated. 

The idea is for passengers to feel that making the switch to private air travel was the best decision for their health and safety.

A Reduction in Connecting Flights

Connecting flights increases travel time and they put passengers in contact with even more travelers – increasing their health and safety risk as they make their way through terminals and public restrooms, etc.  

Efforts are being made to add more routes to more remote destinations to reduce the need for passengers to have to encounter connecting flights. Private jets can reduce their stops – unless just to refuel. And passengers can enjoy a straight-through flight. 

This is a treatment you won’t find on commercial flights.

Increased Sustainability Efforts

Sanitation has become a greater concern than ever before – especially when flying. Keeping people safe is important and many private jet companies have taken to implementing safer sanitation practices to do just that. 

What can give travelers a greater sense of ease is that one can have a lot more confidence in a team that is sanitizing a jet after one passenger than after 230 passengers. And these intensive sanitizing efforts don’t just take place on the jet, but throughout the FBO, too. What’s more, many use regular COVID-19 testing as a preventative measure for those who have not been vaccinated.

Business Travel

Those who think of private jets often think of business executives as the two seem to have always gone hand-in-hand. However, during the global pandemic, business travel declined at alarming rates. Many businesses were shut down, operations were slowed, and travel just was not part of the equation any longer. 

There were concerns as to whether that would pick back up – and when. Or would the pandemic damage the ability of businesses to have private travel in their budget? But, business travel did pick back up at a faster rate than expected. It is again a solid part of the business for private charters. Many more businesses have even joined in as a means to reduce the risk for those employees who are traveling. 

Family Travel

While private jet charters were used to seeing business professionals in suits take to the skies, family travel is now a new trend. Families are finding it a much more enjoyable travel experience – especially those traveling with small children and pets. 

Many are gearing their advertising toward families, promoting family-friendly accommodations, on-board entertainment systems, and so forth. Plus, furry family members are able to be in the cabin with the rest of the family – no cargo for Fido. 

Combine all of these perks (and then some) with the fact that private travel is incredibly flexible and families will never want to fly any other way.

High Demand and High Costs

Private travel has always been thought to be out of reach for many travelers. The high cost was something only very wealthy individuals and businesses could afford. However, as more and more people are accessing these flights, more information is coming out about how to find deals and get the best rates for private travel. And, it is proving worthwhile. 

In other words, yes, the high demand can lead to high costs, but if you know where to look you can find the right deal for you. For instance, empty leg flights and traveling during off-peak hours are two great options. 

Wrapping Up New Private Jet Trends

The private jet industry is definitely evolving thanks to these new trends – many resulting from the global pandemic. By making efforts to keep passengers safe and healthy, offering flexible flight solutions, and focusing on private travel as more of a need rather than a want, the industry is growing. 

The next time you find yourself having to travel, whether for business or pleasure, consider all the benefits that come with chartering a private jet.
