Poll: Is the coronavirus impacting your operations?
With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the charter flight industry has been responding to requests for charters related to travel disruptions brought on by the virus.
Air Charter Service, based in the UK, has been “inundated with requests,” the company reports. So has Air Partner, also based in the UK.
“Since the outbreak our offices around the world have been arranging flights on local carrier aircraft as the world deals with the travel disruption and overall cut to capacity in the region,” said Justin Lancaster, Air Charter Service commercial director. Air Charter Service arranges flights for clients. “We have flown everything from four passengers on a private jet, to hundreds on larger aircraft, to 100 tons of surgical masks. It has been all systems go since the epidemic was first reported.”
