“Further whilst flying privately, the various touch points throughout the journey also reduce, making private flying favorable. A study in the States confirmed that commercial fliers have over 200 touch points at the airport whilst private jets have as little as 30, so people may prefer private flying,” Tekriwal shared.

The aviation company has been able to fly 50 per cent of flights from the total requests it has received for leisure travel after the domestic suspension on air travel was lifted. (IANS)
