How GlobeAir is tackling Aviation strikes in 2023

Strikes causing disruption in the Aviation Industry

Overcoming the challenges of flight delays and cancellations

As we begin a new year of travel in 2023, it's important to be aware of the potential disruptions that may impact our journeys. Strikes are affecting the aviation industry in France, Germany, Spain and other regions across Europe, causing delays and cancellations that can leave passengers stranded.

At the root of these strikes lies the issue of fair compensation for workers in the travel industry. As the cost of living continues to rise, demands for pay raises in line with growing inflation have led to a wave of industrial disputes across Europe. These disputes have unfortunately impacted the aviation industry, resulting in disruptions to flight schedules that can cause frustration and inconvenience for travellers.

The impact of strikes on travel plans

A case study based on our own experience

Strikes can significantly impact travellers and the travel industry, as demonstrated by a recent event we hosted in Paris.

Despite careful planning and preparation, some attendees could not attend due to cancelled flights on the day of departure from destinations such as Munich and Nice. And even during the event, multiple attendees had their return flights cancelled, causing stress and frustration.

To make matters worse, for the return flight home, some of our team members faced a three-hour delay that caused them to miss their connecting flight. The airline offered to cover an overnight stay at a nearby hotel, but it was little comfort to our exhausted and anxious team members, who knew they were missing out on valuable time at the event.

The next day, things went from bad to worse. The flight meant to connect our team members to their home base was cancelled, leaving them stranded with no clear way home. With no other option, they decided to fly to another destination and rent a car to drive back home - a gruelling journey that took them hours and left them feeling drained and frustrated.

In this situation, flying with a private jet operator would have provided a reliable and stress-free alternative. However, as mentioned earlier, private jets can be in high demand during strikes and may only be available for some travellers.

How private jet operators minimise the impact of strikes

The advantages of choosing GlobeAir for efficient and reliable travel

There are ways to mitigate the impact of these disruptions and ensure a smooth travel experience. One such option is to fly with a private jet operator such as GlobeAir, which offers several advantages over commercial airlines.

Private jet operators have greater control over their operations and schedules, which means we can minimise the impact of strikes by using smaller regional airports or adjusting flight plans to avoid affected areas.

GlobeAir can use smaller regional airports to get our clients to their destinations without delay if a significant and larger airport is closed due to a strike. If air traffic control (ATC) is experiencing disruptions, GlobeAir can reroute our flights to avoid the affected airspace or adjust our flight plans to minimise delays.

GlobeAir also offers a variety of amenities and services that make for a truly luxurious travel experience; from customised catering to luxury ground or helicopter transfers, you can expect nothing but the best when you fly with GlobeAir.

Privacy and exclusivity are the most crucial benefits of flying with GlobeAir. You won't have to worry about long security lines or crowded airports. Private jet operators have dedicated security at the FBO and offer private lounges for their clients to relax before their flights.

So, if you're looking for a travel experience tailored to your needs and free from the hassles of commercial air travel, GlobeAir is your choice for a bespoke experience. You can rest assured that your travel plans will remain seamless and stress-free even when disruptions occur.
