Save up to 15% of your travel costs on a private jet charter

Why chartering a private jet with GlobeAir lets you save time and money compared to a business class flight

The future of business trips by private jet charter in a post-2020 world

Today, travelling by private jet for business can prove more efficient than using any other means of transport. In a world dominated by fears of the pandemic, travellers forget that many countries nowadays do allow business trips if the time spent abroad does not surpass 24 or 48 hours – (different country regulations apply here).

Now that you are only allowed to spend a limited time abroad, problems arise for business travellers who are not used to travelling and getting the negotiations done on the same day. In a world where commercial airlines have shrunk their route plans, offering fewer destinations and fewer time slots, coupled with the fact that hospitality facilities provide less availability and restaurants are closed, the highest priority becomes ensuring travel efficiency.

So, what’s left for business travellers? How can businesspeople apply the 7-38-55 rule of communication – stating that 7 per cent of meaning is communicated through spoken word, 38 per cent through tone of voice, and 55 per cent through body language (Mehrabian, 1971) – again? Is there space for business meetings happening outside of zoom in 2021? The answer is yes, and it can be done by chartering an entry-level private jet charter.

Entry-level private jet charters offer a whole array of benefits nowadays. They focus on biosecurity and – if organised by an experienced private jet operator – they make sure that passengers are kept up-to-date with travel regulations frequently. Passengers will benefit from a dedicated travel plan and constant personal support in case of disruptions – forget about the long time spent on a hotline following the instructions of a recorded message, only to receive answers like “We don’t know madam, ask the Embassy”.

Private jet charters statistics are speaking for themselves

Because of the urgency and need to be efficient while travelling, people are becoming more time and cost-conscious, and are starting to question how they can make their journey happen within a day and as discreetly and seamlessly as possible. So, are private jet charters efficient?

Business class private jet costs compared

Let us look at an example comparing business class vs private jet charters imagining a fictional journey from Paris to Kiel with four business people (a CEO, his/her assistant, a CFO and a lawyer) travelling.

Travellers are starting to make these calculations themselves

GlobeAir has registered a 15.5% YoY day returns increase just in the first months of 2021. Flight requests come at short-notice, almost instantly – as people realise the benefits of business aviation during a shortage of travel possibilities. The scarcity of supply also drives price sensitivity down, making it sustainable for GlobeAir and similar companies to keep operating at the top of their game.

The choice also concerns the type of aircraft: entry-line private jet operators’ advantages.

When it comes to choosing which kind of private jet to hire, travellers nowadays are opting for entry-line private jets as there is an advantage regarding their impact on the environment. Light jets are smaller, more efficient and more sustainable.

How can we expect the future of business trips to be?

30% of business trips will disappear but certain industries will always prefer private jets for their journeys

As airlines will struggle to come back to the number of flights offered in the pre-COVID19 era, we predict 30% of business trips will disappear, giving way to those ubiquitous communication giants who have thrived during the pandemic.

However, certain specific industries like finance and the industrial sector will always prefer day trips over zoom meetings as per the nature of their negotiations. As well as this, any senior consultancy will still be done better face to face – as GlobeAir’s statistics regarding passengers flown can confirm.
