PrivateFly reports surge in demand for private jet travel following UK quarantine announcement
14 August 2020 – PrivateFly has reported three times the number of enquiries and bookings for flights out of countries set to be added to the UK’s quarantine list on Saturday, compared with 24 hours previously.
Adam Twidell, PrivateFly CEO, said: “Following the changes to the UK’s quarantine list overnight, we’ve received a surge in demand for private jet travel out of affected countries, with three times the average number of enquiries and bookings for flights to the UK from France, The Netherlands and Malta, before 4am on Saturday morning.
“We’ve also had a number of enquiries from clients booked to travel to these destinations in the coming weeks to change their travel plans in order to avoid quarantine zones. We can arrange flights at very short notice with the flexibility to change route at the last minute, however, availability is limited as the spike in demand coincides with what is already the peak summer season for private leisure travel.”
