As fears about the spread of COVID-19 grow and the travel ban announced by President Trump goes into effect, Americans abroad are scrambling to get back to the United States. As a result, ticket prices are soaring and availability is growing scarcer by the minute. To make matters worse, major airlines including British Airways, Delta, Norwegian and Ryanair are canceling hundreds of routes and flights. The good news is, there is an option to get home from Europe safely—flying private with ClickJetz on-demand jet services that offer the best charter rates available.
Since the travel ban was imposed, prices on commercial airlines have skyrocketed—in some cases tripling. In just one day, one-way flights from Paris to New York traveling Friday went from $2000 up to $7300 on several airlines. Many schools across the country are on spring break, creating even greater demand for flights. Those trying to purchase or change tickets on the phone are finding themselves waiting hours with no success.
If travelers can even find a seat on a flight, they may expose themselves to COVID-19. Airport lines and crowds are at all-time high, increasing the risk of exposure even more.
Flying private reduces that risk by providing a more exclusive transportation option. Less exposure to other travelers, means less risk.
With the threat of COVID-19 growing exponentially, it’s critical to mitigate risk. By flying with ClickJetz, passengers can rest assured that all high-touch areas are disinfected thoroughly in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
Another benefit of flying private is that, unlike with commercial airlines, connections are much more limited. With the extraordinary demand right now, passengers are forced to make an unusual number of connections, requiring them to pass through crowded international airports.
With the CDC and WHO (World Health Organization) recommending “social distancing,” private charter flights are the safest option.
