A happy ending.

And for this reason, private jet flight attendants have a unique perspective on the private jet industry. After all, it is a fascinating and ever-evolving one. Today, we’ll discuss some of the most insightful topics related to the industry.

So, ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seatbelts, because you’re in for a ride.


The latest trends in the private jet industry

Private jet travel is the new rock 'n' roll. It's fast, it's exclusive, and it's damn cool. And just like rock 'n' roll, the private jet industry is constantly evolving.

In recent years, we've seen a number of changes, both for owners and clients alike. Owners are investing more in sanitation and digital technology, while clients are traveling with their pets and children in increasing numbers.

So what can we expect from the private jet charter industry in the coming years? Here are five trends to keep an eye on:

✈️ The rise of fractional jet ownerships and jet cards

Fractional jet ownership and jet cards are becoming increasingly popular among private jet travelers. Fractional jet ownership allows you to purchase a share of a private jet, which gives you access to the aircraft for a certain number of hours each year.

Jet cards are similar, but instead of purchasing a share of the aircraft, travelers purchase a set number of flight hours. These options are making private jet travel more accessible to a wider range of people. As of 2018, Forbes magazine has documented over 250 jet card programs available, each with their own customization options. It can be tough to find the right one for you or your company.

🛫 The growing popularity of private jet travel for business and leisure

Private jet travel is no longer just for the ultra-rich. More and more businesses and individuals are choosing to fly privately…

And why wouldn’t they?

It offers myriads of benefits over commercial air travel: increased flexibility, convenience, privacy, and the list goes on and on.

Private jet travel is also becoming popular for leisure travel by the day! We can get into the details of why that is, but suffice to say that the saying, “you are not rich until you can fly on a private jet without posting a picture!” is doing the rounds. How come? In short, a burgeoning micro-celebrity culture that encourages aspirational lifestyles is also boosting private jet hire.

🌎 The increasing demand for private jet travel to exotic destinations

One of the biggest trends in the private jet industry is the increasing demand for travel to exotic destinations.

Hold on, did someone say exotic? Remote destinations? Count me in!

Private jet travelers seek uniqueness and exclusivity, and they’re willing to pay a premium to fly to destinations that are off the beaten path. Some of the most popular exotic destinations for private jet travel include St. Maarten, the Maldives, and the Seychelles.

🛩️ The development of new technologies, like the VTOL aircraft

New technologies are also emerging that are revolutionizing the private jet industry. One of the most exciting new technologies is vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft.

Simply put, VTOL aircraft can take off and land vertically, which means they don’t require a runway. This makes them ideal for travel to remote destinations and for use in urban areas.

🥗 Light and refreshing food

Robb Report recommends eating healthy, small meals while flying in a private jet. A private jet passenger's body would react differently to food than it would on the ground, so they should plan accordingly.

In the air, sluggishness sets in more quickly and a feeling of fullness is reached considerably more quickly if foods are overly rich or heavy. To keep a sharp mind and an active body during a private jet journey, go with light salads, fruit, eggs, low sodium soups, and natural plant based alternatives.


What does this mean for you as a private jet flight attendant?

All of these trends are having a major impact on the private jet industry, and they're creating new opportunities for private jet flight attendants. As the demand for private jet travel increases, so too will the demand for qualified flight attendants.

Plus, the development of new technologies, such as VTOL aircraft, is opening up new possibilities for private jet travel, which will help create new opportunities for flight attendants willing to embrace change.
