Private Charter During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Coronavirus, or COVID-19, continues to wreak havoc around the world.

As of this update, many  travel restrictions and border closings are still in place. This is proving challenging in sourcing aircraft or scheduling flights in some cases. PrivateFly is committed to the safety of our clients, as well as of the pilots and crew, as we try to navigate an increasingly fluid situation.

Our Safety Officers and Operations teams are meeting daily to discuss latest developments.

Please call us at (866) 726-1222 to discuss your travel requirements.

Inquiries are ranging from for group evacuations and repatriations from affected areas, to corporate and private individuals looking to book a private charter flight. Some following an airline cancellation, others are looking at private aircraft in order to to avoid moving through large crowds at airports and airliner cabins, which have a perceived higher risk of exposure.

In many cases, inquiries are from passengers who don’t usually fly by private aviation, but are looking to protect themselves, their families, and employees.

Along with the whole travel industry, at PrivateFly we are taking this situation extremely seriously. The logistics of flying in or out of affected regions is complex and challenging and in some regions, the availability of aircraft and crews is making it more difficult than usual to arrange flights.

With the continually changing landscape of border restrictions and aircraft availability, we are doing our best to stay agile and work with our clients within these challenging parameters.

Our Safety Officers in Europe and the US are working closely with our teams and our operators & suppliers, so that we can continue to keep passengers moving as much as we possibly can – while taking every possible precaution to protect the safety and health of both passengers and crew.

All the aircraft that we charter from operators within our parent group Directional Aviation, have been deep cleaned with an industrial anti-viral disinfectant which gives lasting protection, and are additionally disinfected between each flight. Each aircraft is equipped with a protective healthcare and sanitary equipment kit for passengers and crew, should it be required. The health of crew members is being monitored very closely, including temperature checks before every flight.

It’s a fluid situation and operational protocols are changing daily. We are continuously monitoring the situation of the COVID-19 outbreak and current advice from governments, health, and aviation authorities.
