Product launches are integral to business success
Read about 7 brands that nailed their global product launches
They’re not only a chance to reconnect with customers and showcase your products to clients in person, but a product launch, whether onsite or at a trade fair demonstrates you’re keeping up with market trends. And for customers, being able to touch, feel or see products in action is key to a persuasive purchasing experience.
95% of businesses still want to exhibit in 2022 and beyond
The global Covid-19 pandemic forced in-person sales and marketing to drop dramatically, to nearly non-existent levels. Two years on, businesses are picking up again globally, with a renewed desire to travel and return to neglected customers and markets.
According to a 2022 survey carried out by trade show organiser DisplayWizard, today, “95% of exhibitors [still] prefer in-person events”, and “59% of exhibitors plan to exhibit at more trade shows, compared to pre-Covd times.”
Take a look at a full industry overview of 2023 trade shows in Europe.
This means that, in addition to the new modes of hybrid and remote working, it’s still critical for companies to connect face-to-face.
Commercial travel disruption causes headaches for commerce
But what cannot be ignored is that business travel has become more complicated, with travellers experiencing delays and cancellations far more frequently than in the pre-pandemic period.
Lingering logistical complications arising from the tail-end of the global Covid-19 pandemic mean that marketeers and product VPs face a multitude of challenges to ensure that product is available across relevant channels, that field teams are properly prepared and marketing efforts are coordinated with the new product launch push.
In terms of international air travel, the hangover of Covid staff shortages and ongoing sickness-related absences means delays and hold-ups among commercial air carriers, with a knock-on effect across global logistics and supply chains, too.
For teams trying to orchestrate a product launch or distribute goods within their market, Covid-related travel troubles can really hold up plans, meaning that businesses miss crucial time-slots for meeting key clients or showing at crucial events.
Take back control and charter a private jet
One of the ways to remove all the unsettling uncertainty around delivery of critical goods for product launches and ensuring your teams arrive on time is to opt for a private carrier such as LunaJets and charter a private jet to transport your products and your people.

Avoid delays and disruptions with private air travel
At LunaJets, we know that firms planning a product launch or product reveal simply cannot afford to experience delays and disruptions. The success of any product launch depends on precision, perfect coordination, and reliability. Trade shows and product launches are often confined to strict timing and set days, with absolutely no room for no-shows or delays.
This is where the peace of mind of chartering a private aircraft with LunaJets comes into its own.
Why would companies charter a private jet for a product launch?
The simple answer is: to enjoy total confidence that everything - and everyone - will arrive on time, safe in the knowledge there will be no delays or lost items.
Chartering a private jet with LunaJets eliminates all travel-related headaches and brings peace of mind in so many ways:
LunaJets aircraft operate to your schedule, and will depart according to your timetable
Our aircraft are independently managed by LunaJets - they will not be delayed or cancelled
Save time checking-in and with security: check in for individuals takes around 15 minutes
Quiet, luxurious and spacious - LunaJets’ fleet of private jets are conducive to working, so your executive teams can be productive mid-air
Private jets are comfortable and equipped with state-of-the-art cabins and inflight technology, so staff arrive refreshed and ready for your product launch or pitch
Products and items can be taken directly onto the plane, so they are with your teams at all times; especially useful for valuable or fragile items
Materials and items stowed in the hold can usually still be accessed during the flight, for convenience
If you have much heavier or bulky items to transport, partner with LunaJets’ Cargo division, LunaLogistik, for seamless cargo operations.

Transporting valuable products or prototypes? Private travel is ideal
Private jet travel also comes into its own if you need to transport specialist equipment or unique items, such as prototypes or products with a high intellectual property value. This is where you simply cannot afford for your luggage or items to be lost or mislaid with a commercial airline, and when you would prefer to travel closely with your product at all times. Travelling by private jet means you can either take the item directly with you onto the plane, or watch as it is safely loaded into the hold: you can keep an eye on your product at all times.
Some of the ways in which companies choose LunaJets to charter a private aircraft include the following:
To transport a small sales team together with a small number of products in the aircraft, securely and swiftly.
To transport a small sales team with equipment or goods in the hold.
To transport a larger sales team on a larger aircraft, and make use of ample space for product in the hold.

But did you know that LunaJets also operates a specialist Cargo division, LunaLogistik? Businesses can charter a larger-size aircraft via LunaLogistik and transport bulky and outsize cargo, from spare parts to large containers.
