Global Elites Flee Chinese Coronavirus Threat on Private Jets. By Simon Kent.
“Inquiries have gone through the roof,” he told AFP, noting his company Paramount Business Jets had seen a 400 percent increase in queries, with bookings up roughly 20-25 percent.
“It is completely coronavirus,” he added.
“We are seeing our regular private jet clients flying as they normally do. However, we have this surge of clients coming our way and the majority of them have never flown private.”
The reason for the demand is explained by the fact private flyers do not want to be confined with hundreds of people with “unknown” travel histories.
Private passengers also clear customs and immigration separate from crowded main airport terminals, allowing them to move freely whether it be on a holiday trip or heading to a conference in distant places.
What, you expected them to walk? To save carbon miles?
