COVID quickly and drastically changed the business landscape, with many experts believing some of its changes to be permanent. One of these changes is the increased interest in charter flights as an alternative to commercial airlines.
More companies are turning to private air charter as a more efficient and reliable means of flying employees to keep projects on track. As an added pandemic-focused benefit, this method lets companies exercise extra precautions to ensure employee health and safety.
This shift comes at a critical time as the number of scheduled flights has been significantly reduced. Chartering a private jet allows for more flexibility in your travels and keeps essential projects moving forward. One of the most common examples we’ve seen throughout the past year is oil and gas companies flying employees to critical missions, such as offshore rigs and drilling.
What’s more, because countries are continually changing their rules as to who can pass through their borders, it’s essential to work with a charter broker who is keeping their finger on the pulse of travel restrictions and requirements.
Here’s a closer look at how and why other companies are using private jet travel in the new normal:
An Increased Focus on Employee Wellbeing
Keeping employees safe and healthy has been an ongoing theme in the past year. For those companies that are still allowing employees to travel, they’re taking extended measures when it comes to health and wellbeing.
Access Jet Group is taking every precaution when it comes to cleanliness and social distancing. We’ve worked with our partners to implement a number of safety measures to make traveling safer from a health perspective. For example, our partners conduct temperature checks for every passenger and crew member prior to boarding. We’ve also helped to establish guidance for social distancing while on board the aircraft. We also arrange for thorough cleaning and disinfecting in between every flight, as well as ensure crew members wear proper PPE throughout the duration of the trip.

A Better Grip on Travel Logistics
Countries are continually changing their rules for allowing international visitors through their borders. Scheduled domestic and international flights alike are harder to come by due to cancelations. For companies who depend on smooth travel logistics, working with a reputable air charter broker can remove much of the guesswork from this process.
For starters, Access Jet Group keeps a watchful eye on regulations and restrictions for international travel. We use this information to help you make important booking decisions and ensure team members reach their destinations as quickly and efficiently as possible. We also stay up to date with airport requirements in relation to COVID 19 related changes. This allows us to help you stay on track on our end so we don’t run into unforeseen (and unnecessary) delays.
We also recognize the increased complexities associated with sending crews with mixed nationalities into various countries. Certain nationalities may not be allowed through border control, or maybe required to quarantine upon entry. You might need permits or diplomatic clearances or need to expedite turnaround times for permits.
When you’re transitioning crew members to different projects and countries, we can help develop workarounds and simplify the logistics so that projects aren’t further delayed.
Making Project Continuity a Priority with Private Jet Travel
Some projects aren’t just essential to your company and clients. They may also affect the livelihood of the global population at large, which is certainly the case in industries like oil and gas. These projects power local economies and broad civilizations alike, and delaying essential projects because of COVID 19 simply isn’t an option.
The above measures we’ve taken can help your VIPs (very important projects) continue per usual while also taking health and safety into account. We’re following the rapidly changing circumstances of every country and tailoring custom flight solutions to your needs.
