Private jets have always been considered as a choice of  transportation for wealthy people who used this service for business or for vacations, taking advantage of the flexibility of schedules and the access to dedicated airports. 

Today, in a present completely distorted by the Coronavirus pandemic, Private Jets affirm a new identity in the collective imagination. The private plane is in fact seen as an effective and efficient means of returning home, transport of medical devices, air ambulance, assistance to humanitarian organizations.

A social aspect has never been considered before which the operators of the sector and the public have affirmed its identity.

Proving that, in March and April and right after announcing the lockdown in almost all over the world and many airlines have stopped operating, Fast Private Jet supported many clients who had children, friends and relatives outside the Italian territory, who were blocked in different countries due to the lack of scheduled commercial flights.

As many countries have made transfers to and from national borders difficult, many airlines, precisely in relation to these decisions and given the difficulty of enforcing safety regulations, have decided to cancel flights leaving the aircraft on the ground and, consequently, passengers who still needed a transfer.

For this reason, many people have decided to use “alternative solutions” to return home to their loved ones in order to experience this difficult period of quarantine in their homes. One of the most popular solutions is precisely that of private jets.

In this last period Fast Private Jet has had many requests to allow students, workers and managers to return to Italy from abroad thanks to a private flight, guaranteeing very high quality standards also as regards the risks of contagion from Covid-19.

The advantages of using a private flight to return safely home are manifold. Let’s forget the queues and the inevitable gatherings to be able to board a normal scheduled flight, that is due to limited seats on a private jet (usually we are talking about a number of few units, from 4 to 10 people) and all boarding procedures are carried out in full compliance with current regulations and recommendations issued by the World Health Organization.

This obviously includes also the measurement of the temperature for the crew and passengers, as well as all the complex paperwork to organize departures and arrivals at such a complex time where many countries have, in fact, closed their borders to avoid the spread of the virus.

Another aspect to consider and which guarantees maximum safety is sanitization

aircraft after each flight. In this way, even if a passenger had been on board

asymptomatic, the aircraft would still be sanitized making the next flight 100% safe. A very high safety standard, for which it is very difficult to find feedback on a normal plane of


In short, in full crisis from Coronavirus, private flights are no longer intended as a convenience or an ostentation of luxury but, on the contrary, they play an extremely important social role allowing many people to reunite, safely, with their families.
