| COVID-19 Pandemic 

The Coronavirus pandemic began to shut down virtually all aspects of normal life. Many industries are faced with the challenges of a possible coming economic crisis. However, as countries begin to reopen their economies it seems as if the Business Jet market is recovering.

The business aviation sector has not proven immune to the fallout, even if it usually benefits from times of disruption, when business travellers turn to private charters to fill the gaps left by restrictions on commercial aviation.

Worldwide business jet flight fell approx. 79% in the first two weeks when the pandemic took over Europe, just over 26,000 flights were operated during the period. Activity in America and Europe broadly reflected that global trend, while business jet flight activity out of Asia and Africa fell between 65-70%, flight activity out of China was down by 57%. In all, just under 1,000 business jets were active worldwide in the first half of April, compared to over 4,000 in the corresponding period the year before.

However, while commercial airlines grounded service over the past two years, wealthy and business leaders were still able to travel safe. As a result, sales and consumption within private jet has increased, especially in 2021.
