Now that we’re more firmly rooted in the new normal, many businesses are starting to explore ways they can resume operations that were temporarily put on hold. One solution that stands out is group charter via private jet.
Nearly a year after the COVID 19 pandemic infiltrated the United States, social distancing guidelines have yet to relax. COVID cases are climbing, people are still wearing masks, and hand sanitizing stations can still be found just about everywhere you turn. In the midst of this is a consistent focus on keeping employees safe, including when they travel for business.
As a leading private charter broker, Access Jet Group works with a number of industries and organizations to arrange air travel. Whether it’s crew rotations in the oil and gas industry or flying corporate clients to explore new business opportunities, we recognize each of our clients shares two common goals: to keep business moving forward and maintaining employee health and safety.
Why Private Group Charter for Air Travel?
Private flights have been a valuable business resource throughout the global pandemic. We saw an increase in first-time private jet clients because of the many benefits this method offers compared to conventional air travel.
Clients have more control over the airport experience, including scheduling, wait times, and destination options. They also wanted more comfort and peace of mind in their on-board environment, something they felt was missing on scheduled flights.
Our team at Access Jet Group took quick action at the onset of the pandemic to adjust our operations and hold our partners to high health and safety standards. We continue to bring our expertise in the industry to providing clients with a variety of solutions despite the inherent challenges of traveling during COVID 19.
Here are some of the ways we are supporting group travel with the utmost safety precautions:
Before Your Flight
It has always been our priority to work only with reputable aircraft operators, and this remains the case during these trying times. We have a network of more than 7,000 aircraft, which allows us to accommodate groups of all sizes and needs.
Every client receives a dedicated account manager that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Your account manager will work directly with you to make your travel arrangements, both in the air and on the ground, to ensure a seamless, stress-free trip. We can also work with you on seating arrangements, on-board refreshments, social distancing (e.g. keeping the middle seat open, etc.), and other necessities to instill confidence and comfort in your trip.
At the Airport
Once your group arrives at the airport, you can expect a number of time-saving benefits with private air charter. For starters, moving through security takes a fraction of the time compared to commercial flights. For added safety, we can help you stagger the arrival of passengers to limit the number of people in the security queue or even begin boarding the flight earlier.
Other security measures to expect include:
- Social distancing markers placed throughout the airport
- Strategically placed hand sanitizing stations (e.g. airport check-in desks, boarding gates, security, etc.)
- PPE worn by airport staff and crew members
- Temperature checks prior to boarding the aircraft
For questions regarding safety at the airport, please reach out to our team.
Onboard the Aircraft
Whether your destination is an hour or five hours away, the cleanliness of the onboard environment is something we take very seriously. We ensure that our partners deep clean the aircraft between every flight, including sanitizing all surfaces and replenishing PPE as needed.
At your request, we can arrange to provide masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, and/or other accessories to all of your group members to use during their flight. We will also work with you to establish meals or snacks that are easy to serve safely and minimize direct contact with the food and crew while serving.
Each of these and other requirements can be tailored to meet your needs. Work with your dedicated account manager to ensure no detail goes overlooked.
