Citizens living as expatriates when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit saw the event in a very different light. To help bring citizens home in a secure and timely manner, Access Jet Group’s private jet charters became an indispensable service.
It’s estimated that about 9 million U.S. citizens live and work abroad. Another one in four are seriously considering or planning to do the same, according to data from Greenback Expat Tax Services and the U.S. Department of State. When the pandemic hit, many ex-pats wanted nothing more than to come home and repatriate — but canceled flights, closing borders, and a mountain of other obstacles reduced their window of hope.
One solution that many expatriates found to be consistent and reliable was a private jet charter.
How Private Jet Charter Supports Repatriation
Access Jet Group was quickly able to overcome many of the travel restrictions and challenges left behind by commercial airlines, as well as reduce each passenger’s risk of contact and exposure to others.
During the early days of the pandemic, we focused on moving international clients back to their respective home countries. Because of our expansive network of more than 7,000 operators and aircraft, we were in an ideal position to address a global challenge by partnering with strategically placed operators for expedited travel. This allowed us to secure flight options for clients with as little as 1-3 days’ notice.
And because of our global strategic partnerships, we had eyes and ears on the ground in numerous countries to maintain up-to-date data on entry requirements, COVID testing, and other local conditions that would impact our clients’ returns. We worked tirelessly around the clock, maintaining our promise of 24/7/365 availability and handling all of the heavy lifting on behalf of our passengers.
As the pandemic continued to grow and evolve, we saw an uptick in corporate travel requests for companies that wanted to repatriate their workers who were living abroad. From doctors and nurses to engineers and business professionals, many of these clients were critical workers whose services were desperately needed back home.
