JET ASSIST VIPS RECEIVE A WARM WELCOME WITH KEITH DRURY ART EXHIBITION
We are delighted to launch a new local collaboration project at Jet Assist, bringing art and aviation together in a unique way. Our Art and Aviation campaign will see local Northern Irish artists given an exclusive platform to exhibit their work to our private and corporate flyers.
As Northern Ireland’s premier private jet operator based at Belfast International Airport, our luxury FBO lounge and private security suite hosts a comfortable and tranquil setting for clients to relax before or after their flight. With visitors from the business, entertainment and sports industries jetting into Northern Ireland from all over the world, small and large parties travel through Jet Assist on a daily basis.
We are delighted to launch into 2022 with our first collaborator Keith Drury Art. His famous collection of vibrant 3D cityscapes are now on display in our VIP lounge, inviting clients to spend time with the art depicting each piece and identifying lots of local spots. Keith is well-known for his bold, colourful local landscapes of Belfast and various towns in Northern Ireland. His works are created simply to be enjoyed and be a talking point on anyone’s wall. Each piece is created with great attention to detail with months of precise work going into each picture. His works often yield hidden surprises to those who are eagle-eyed. New York, Paris and Liverpool cityscapes also feature amongst Keith’s work. Visit keithdruryart.com or the Keith Drury Art Gallery on Belfast’s bustling Belmont Road.
As two local Northern Irish companies, we are excited to bring art and aviation together in a unique way through this collaboration. Visitors have the opportunity to purchase the art from our FBO, taking an exclusive piece of Northern Ireland talent with them.
“We are thrilled to be working with Keith Drury. The exhibit just adds something extra to our client experience within the FBO and shows off Northern Ireland in a special way.” – Beth Maxwell, Marketing Manager – Jet Assist / SERE Group.

Jet Assist host Villareal Football Club, as Northern Ireland presents the 2021 UEFA Super Cup final!
Northern Ireland took centre stage last week whilst proudly presenting the UEFA Super Cup final to millions of viewers across the globe. The match, held at Windsor Park football stadium in Belfast saw Chelsea score a 6-5 penalty shootout win to Villareal.
Drawing large interest, Belfast International Airport was a hive of activity, as flights came in with excited spectators, VIP clients and of course the players and their teams.
Jet Assist were delighted to welcome the Villareal team through the FBO after the match to safely and comfortably fly the squad home. The event was managed exceptionally well by the Jet Assist team, led by FBO Manager Claire Grist. Arriving promptly in their coaches, the Villareal players, coaches and staff were checked in swiftly and passed through the private security suite before safely boarding the aircraft. The relaxed and comfortable facilities in the FBO were ideal for the late evening flight. Check out our FBO, click here.
Although it was not the result we wanted for Villareal, we made sure the large group enjoyed a welcoming and comfortable experience, and the football team very kindly gave us a Villareal shirt as a keepsake.

At Jet Assist, we have experienced a year like no other following the global pandemic that grounded most of the airline industry. Fortunately, Jet Assist work with essential service companies and continued to provide medical flights and any essential travel that was required. Following the relaxation of airline travel restrictions, we have never been busier. Key trends prompted by the pandemic and that we believe will continue into next year are:
Travelling privately through FBOs and private or business jet facilities means less people and human contact. The aftermath of Covid has made travellers more cautious when travelling. The safe environment flying with a private jet company has become a necessity for some.
ELIMINATE CONNECTING FLIGHTS
Private flights allow passengers to avoid large crowds and different airport terminals. With more routes and flexibility available for smaller aircraft, there is more opportunities to fly without having to change to connecting flights.
WORK FROM… ANYWHERE!
Working from home has become standard for many businesses since the pandemic. However, ‘working from home’ does not have to be where you live! Business owners and professionals are adapting to the flexibility of being able to work from holiday homes or whilst travelling. You could work from almost anywhere for extended periods of time, as long as you have good Wi-Fi!
Today’s Jet Aircraft are 80% more fuel efficient that the first jets flown in the 1960s. However, more needs to be done to help sustain our world and its environment. Development is well underway for newer aircraft to travel with a reduced carbon footprint and talks have even started surrounding the introduction of electric planes in aviation.
VIP FLYING ON THE RISE
Private flights have meant that worldwide sporting events, film productions and live concerts have been able to slowly recommence. Flying by private jet allows bubbles to travel safely together, whilst also providing the security, flexibility and privacy that is often requested with VIP flights. Families with children and pets are expected to use charter flights more regularly in 2021 and operators will adapt their services to accommodate this. Private jet travel offers greater flexibility for parents who need to bring medications on board that might be subject to liquid limits and other restrictions on commercial flights.
