The aviation industry went through a lot of ups and downs in 2020, and here at Monmouth Executive Airport we’ve been carefully watching the industry to understand what trends we’ll be seeing throughout 2021. Business travel via private jet is convenient, quick, and more affordable than it’s been in the past, so with that in mind, here are several business aviation trends we expect to see in 2021:
- We’ll see more first-time business travelers using private jets.
After experiencing a year filled with travel disruptions, executives will want to take advantage of how convenient it is to travel via private jet, especially given their busy schedules. We also anticipate executives wanting to connect in person once it’s safe to do so.
- An enhanced focus on hygiene and cleanliness. Hygiene has always been important to the aviation industry, especially when there are so many people in a small space. Given the fact that private jets allow business travelers to avoid crowded terminals and cramped airplane seating, we expect executives will prefer flying private for increased comfort and peace of mind.
- Increased demand due to flexibility. The pandemic has proven that travel is one of the things people miss the most, and whether for business or leisure, private jets are more readily available and offer more options than commercial flights. Business travelers often have strict schedules and require a jet in last-minute situations, so we expect to see increased demand from executives.
- An increased focus on client experience and retention. With a predicted increase in demand, companies will be going above and beyond to ensure private flyers have a seamless experience and keep coming back. Business travelers who require private jets with flexible schedules just might become regular clients in 2021.
