Significant growth in business aviation amid COVID-19 outbreak
The current situation in the world regarding COVID-19 has seen private aviation companies report an increase of 400% in queries and bookings. The massive explosion in the aforementioned sector can be attributed to travel restrictions and social distancing recommended by health officials.
Why choose business jet?
Health Services around the globe currently recommend practicing social distancing, therefore people turn to private jets to help them relocate elderly parents or travel freely without being subject to government-imposed bans on airlines. According to the report made by GlobeAir, comparing to commercial flights, flying private is 30 times less risky regarding the exposure to an infected person. With a minimal risk of infection and ability to fly long distances, private aviation has proven to be a reliable choice among wide variety of individuals, from typical work class to business people and government officials.
Business aviation to grow after COVID-19 ends
With analysts predicting a U-shaped rather than a V-shaped recovery for aviation sector, there are many doubts about global connectivity recovering to the pre-crisis state.
However, business aviation companies already report a massive number of new clients who have never flown private. Therefore, by becoming more and more popular among working class people because of the limited number of contacts during the flight, business aviation is set to continue its growth and support post-crisis recovery of the sector.
Growing MRO services demand for business aircraft
The massive growth in private aviation sector is predicted to result in a growth of demand for MRO services. With global Business Jet MRO market to be valued US$4.36 billion by 2024, the upcoming wave of new private operators requiring high quality MROs to perform maintenance on their aircraft can rapidly adjust the period needed to surpass US$5 billion mark.
