Jet Assist host Villareal Football Club

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.

Private Jet Trends 2021

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:

HEALTH IMPACT

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!

FLYING GREENER

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.
