Global Jet experienced very strong demand for charter flights throughout the summer of 2021 and across all offices , with Paris , Monaco , Madrid and Geneva setting new records . Charter activity continued to grow in September , October and November with an approximate rise of 140 % in bookings .
Interesting : The Challenger 350 in Global Jet ’ s charter fleet set a record on its own this summer . According to Bombardier ’ s records , the aircraft logged the most flight hours in July and August compared to all other Challenger 350 in the European charter fleet .
Hard to beat when it comes to speed , safety , flexibility and comfort
The exponential growth of Global Jet ’ s charter business is linked to several factors . As a matter of fact , we noticed that passengers were reluctant to travel with commercial airlines due to the increased uncertainty and the desire to avoid unnecessary contact with others . Also , travellers who used to fly business / first class were increasingly turning to private aviation because of the extra safety and flexibility . The fact that , in most locations , private aviation comes with dedicated standalone VIP terminal facilities and channels reduces the potential for exposure as well by avoiding busy airport terminals , check-in counters as well as lengthy boarding procedures . No doubt a contributing factor , too : Global Jet ’ s new dedicated charter web page that makes requesting a quote online easy , simple and quick .
In order to keep up the growth momentum whilst maintaining the high-end service quality our clients are accustomed to , the Global Jet team in Monaco will be expanding its team of Charter Sales Executives to advise customers and find optimal solutions adapted to the client ’ s needs .
