Presented by Jet It - This summer travelers are yearning to take their postponed vacations, celebrate rescheduled weddings, explore remote destinations, and get back to live events. According to a study conducted by travel company, Vacasa, 60% of summer travelers are embarking on their first getaway since the pandemic occurred.
Many of these travelers are excited to create new experiences, but in Vacasa’s study, 40% of respondents stated their top travel priority is the people they’re traveling with, and another 41% stated they aren’t going to fly commercially for their trips.
An alternative you can opt for is private travel, and one of the several beauties is the inherent reduction of touchpoints and contacts. Jet It, a hybrid fractional private aviation firm out of North Carolina, successfully navigated the challenges of keeping its passengers safe from exposure throughout the pandemic and saw a 300% increase in sales in Q3 and Q4 of 2020.
One of the reasons travelers are flocking to Jet It is due to their more accessible, yet luxurious private travel service. Jet It offers hybrid fractional ownership and a days-based model where owners can travel on a brand new HondaJet Elite the entire day at only $1,600 per flight hour.
