Due to the pandemic, people today are more mindful and cautious while choosing their mode of travel. Whether its health risk concerns or just getting where they need to be, individuals or companies that have the means to charter flights, but had previously eschewed it, are now looking at the option, says a private aviation company.

Kanika Tekriwal, CEO and Founder, JetSetGo Aviation says that the private charter aviation operator and manager is receiving one query every alternate day for travel to Goa and other domestic destinations which are safe and don’t have too many cases.

“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)
