Flying privately this holiday season

Friday, December 4, 2020

2020 has undoubtedly been a year like no other, and with the holiday season just around the corner, what better time to get away and enjoy the celebrations. The festive season has always been a popular time to travel, and with restrictions on international travel now lifted across England, we are already seeing an increase in demand for last-minute private jet flights as more travellers are looking to spend time abroad this holiday season. We advise those planning on travelling over the festive period to book now to guarantee availability for their preferred travel dates.

Many countries outside of Europe continue to ease their travel restrictions and welcome foreign visitors once again. Popular winter sun destinations, including the Maldives, St Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, and Dubai are now allowing quarantine-free entry – please check your destination of travel for the most up to date advice. Our team are available to guide you through the latest travel restrictions wherever you choose to travel this winter.

From December 15th travellers arriving back in the UK from a destination without a travel corridor will no longer need to quarantine for 14 days on return, as long as a negative test for coronavirus is provided on the fifth day, making travelling abroad this holiday season more accessible.

Throughout the pandemic, scheduled services have caused many travel plans to be rearranged or cancelled, as commercial airlines adjust their routes and adapt to the changing restrictions. Many of the usual peak-season scheduled services are likely to remain at a reduced capacity as the uncertainties around the pandemic continue. With added safety, flexibility and reliability, more individuals than ever before are looking to private jet travel as their preferred way to fly.

To ensure you can travel with peace of mind during this holiday season, we have introduced added safety measures and flexible cancellation options across all our private jet services. From temperature checks and PPE, to deep-cleaning the aircraft and maintaining social distancing between the flight crew, your potential risk to exposure is kept to a minimum when you fly private. And with flexible cancellation, you can book ahead with peace of mind this festive season.

When it comes to travel in 2020, flexibility has been essential. With our suite of flexible private jet services, including On Demand, On Demand+ and our range of JetCard membership options, you can choose exactly how you want to fly. Our JetCard membership ranges from 5, 10 or 25 hours, so you can choose a programme that suits you and your travel needs. With guaranteed availability, no extra fees to amend or cancel your flight, an all-inclusive hourly rate, and many more member benefits, JetCard gives you ultimate flexibility in these uncertain times.
