During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, aviation’s future seemed bleak. While airlines are still not operating at full capacity, European business aviation companies saw a strong rebound in the month of July 2020. In the statistical data released by EBAA, some European airports have reported an increase in departures of business jet aircraft. Palma de Mallorca airport has seen a 17% increase in private aviation airplanes departing the airport compared to July 2019. With positive recovery signs, the business aviation industry is becoming a popular choice among people looking for a way to travel in comfort while minimizing the number of contact points experienced during regular passenger flight procedures.

Additionally, the data shows that more than 8 countries recorded flight flows that surpassed the 1,000 flights per month figure during the month of July. The main countries leading business aviation’s recovery include United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany and Italy. With more than 2 thousand monthly flights between the aforementioned states, business aviation is regaining its previous market share with hopes of reaching pre-COVID levels by the end of the year.

As previously predicted by Jet Maintenance Solutions business aviation is becoming more and more popular among working class people and because of the limited number of contacts during the flight, private flights are set to continue market’s growth and support post-crisis recovery of the sector.

“With strong signs of rebound around the globe in different operating environments, business aviation companies will most probably see a quicker recovery than commercial aviation. To support rising demand and the need for maintenance, our company is keeping the shops working at full capacity, offering our clients maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions, mandatory upgrades such as ADS-B installation services as well as service bulletins, which improve the safety and comfort of the flights. We are ready to support our business partners at any time 24/7”, comments Vytis Zalimas, CEO at Jet Maintenance Solutions.
