Businesses turn to private jets for avoid snow disruption

UK businesses have snatched up private jet bookings to ensure executives get to meetings before Christmas, according to PrivateFly.com. The company has seen a surge in bookings since the snow caused disruption to scheduled flights. It has been helped by the fact that private jet times can be changed quickly and the industry typically uses small airports. “Private jets are highly flexible and we have been able to re-route customers while the aircraft are flying, to stay one step ahead of airport closures and disruption,” said Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly.com “In the last 48 hours, we have seen echoes of the ash cloud crisis, with a surge of bookings and increased visitors to PrivateFly.com to try and find a private jet solution.” He believes the company will continue to be busy as more cancellations are made.
