Luxaviation UK, a leading private jet charter and management company, is receiving an unusually high number of requests for long-haul charter flights to sunny destinations including the Caribbean, South Africa and the Middle East.
George Galanopoulos, CEO, Luxaviation UK, said, “Although short-haul flights to open European ski resorts are in demand this year, and we’re always delighted to be serving that market, many clients are choosing to fly further afield this winter instead.
“People are acting on the fact long-haul air corridors are more likely to stay open than short-haul corridors in these challenging times. Many of the most popular destinations this winter are in countries where governments were quick to act against coronavirus and ensure a secure environment for tourists
“The tight travel restrictions in Europe at the moment, and the uncertainty over when and how those restrictions might suddenly change, are influencing decisions. After such a difficult 2020, people are booking winter breaks earlier than usual this year, aiming to secure flights and accommodation for a well-earned holiday as soon as possible as we come out of lockdown in the UK.
“After a year of traveling far less than usual, because of Covid-19, many clients are willing to invest more than normal on their winter break this year, another reason why long-haul flights are generating such interest. Spending on safe and secure luxury right now is money well spent.”
Alongside the high demand for winter sunshine, traditional Christmas breaks remain popular.
