A perfect summer storm for aviation
The worldwide travelling industry is facing a huge post-covid disruption. A situation notably exacerbated in Europe, with record levels of summer demand creating chaos in aviation and airports. A perfect storm, where clients pay more for a lower level of service. The main reasons are shortage of qualified staff for air traffic control, airport support, aircraft pilots and crews. The situation is not likely to come back to normal before the demand cools down in October.
Private aviation is not immune
Private jet travel appears to be an attractive commercial alternative to reach summer destinations smoothly. Nevertheless, it is also largely impacted by this situation with delays and disruptions. Private aviation is also facing rising prices, creating additional frustration for our clients.
What LunaJets is doing to mitigate the situation?
Our size, experience and access to a large fleet enable us to mitigate the situation. The Operations team monitors the situation very closely, and is available 24/7 to provide you with instant information and reaction.So far, we managed to cope with the increasing demand but as the season is reaching its peak days, we apologise in advance if the quality of the service you receive is affected by those issues out of our control (airport, traffic control, etc.).
Why jet-card and jet-share holders are adopting LunaJets offer?
These companies are currently unable to deliver the level of service as contracted. They can not extend their supply due to their absence of flexibility, increasing blackout days as a consequence. LunaJets sees a surge in demand from those clients to get access to a much larger fleet and aircraft categories - and at the last minute, access to a/any plane!
What we recommend:
Book as soon as possible, to guarantee the best availability and the best options
Don’t book unless you are sure, to avoid cancellation fees
Show some flexibility before and on the day (expect delays but be always on time at the airport as air traffic delays can improve dramatically if your plane is ready to take-off)
Book our recommended options and operators instead of cheaper offers with random service and support levels
