Corporate Travel is Recovering: Executives Opt For Executive Flights

The world is beginning to recover with the pandemic finally having a vaccine out in the wild being brought to you from various sources. With the virus getting handled better than it’s ever been, some of the world’s best transportation methods are becoming available to the executive traveler once again. One of the things that are making its triumphant return is private flights, and first-class travel is back on the table for the executive-class traveler.

Corporate Travel is Recovering:  Executives Opt For Executive Flights

What goes without saying is that the elite passenger wants to conduct their business while traveling the way they have always traversed. More FBO airports are beginning to become available for business, and private limousine companies are ready to service that esteemed clientele when they touch down on the tarmac. The usual jet-setting way of life is slowly but surely beginning its triumphant return for that businessman or woman, celebrity, or well-to-do individuals who are accustomed to this way of life. 

What You Must Do As A Passenger Of A Executive Flight

Safety isn’t a concern for those who partake in executive flight plans can take solace that their pilots are tested for COVID-19 on a regular basis (even the relief pilots). The boarding process is still the same as it has always been, so nothing changes for the passenger. If anything, boarding may take a little bit longer for sanitization/cleaning purposes. Still, this added time is added to your private flight’s initial departure time, so you would never notice the time is spent preparing the private jet for your departure. 

Usually, a person who flies out of FBO airports has a specific pilot they regularly fly with, therefore having a rapport with them. Nothing on that end changes either. You’ll still enjoy that relaxed, comfortable, and peaceful trip that you’re used to. 

That being said, one change that you’ll incur is that you will now have to provide proof of a negative test to the aircraft operator from the last three days of your flight (or if you’ve had COVID, three days of recovery via the CDC). You will also have to sign off on a passenger Attestation (or declaration form) that you’ll sign off declaring that you’ve had a negative test (or recovered from COVID) within three days for the records of the aircraft operator. The test must be of the viral variety (NAAT or antigen) here in the United States. 

A couple of other things to take note of: 

  • A COVID Vaccination doesn’t exempt you from testing (at this point).
  • Home COVID test is invalid unless sent off to a lab for verification.
  • If you haven’t been tested beforehand, most FBO airports have rapid testing available for the passenger before a flight.
  • If traveling overseas and being gone for any amount of time still requires you to get tested again before re-entry of the company.
  • Verifiable test results that are accepted are test results in the form of a digital or written copy from a laboratory.
