Luqa, Malta – 9 February 2021 – Elit’Avia has announced that with 6,615 flight hours, 2020 was the company’s second busiest year since foundation in 2006.
Elit’Avia’s recent success may be attributed to the resilience of its team and their ability to rapidly respond to evolving client needs during a tumultuous period.
“While we are proud to announce our success, we do so with a sense of humility, knowing that Covid-19 has been very difficult for many people in our industry,” says Michel Coulomb, CEO, Elit’Avia. “Our dedicated team has shown a tremendous ability to respond to the uncertainty of the pandemic. By proposing creative solutions to rapidly-evolving needs, we continued to serve existing clients, and worked with many new clients as well.”
“The more obvious benefits of private aviation during the pandemic include the ability to hand-pick your travel companions and the dramatically lower number of touch points on a typical private flight, versus commercial. Less obvious has been the increase in specialised cargo missions, including the delivery of medical supplies, which is rewarding work because it enables us to contribute directly to fighting the virus. 2020 was a difficult year and we are grateful to have found a measure of success in the face of overwhelming challenge,” adds Coulomb.
