Prior to your private flight
Contact our private flight team, who operate 24 hours a day. We will ask questions to understand what is required. Our team will also ensure that any required flight documentation is in order prior to your flight and minimize any time spent at private jet handlers. Our goal is to get you directly on to and off your private aircraft, using advanced clearing by border control, where possible as part of this process. Our highly experienced team are available 24 hours a day to assist you. See some of the COVID safe flights performed on our private jets in 2020
Cleaning of the aircraft
We ensure the aircraft cabin you are using is clean using medical-grade cleaning products by a professional cleaning team. We use Bacoban during this cleaning process and it is the highest-grade cleaning product available, giving lasting protection from viruses including COVID19, Bacteria and funguses. Bacoban leaves lasting protection on surfaces and is non-toxic in nature. Cabins are well aired during this process prior to being sealed for your flight.
Health Checks on Crews
Flight crew undergo regular PCR tests prior to and after duty, the crew will also test their temperatures and oxygen saturation. Should these exceed parameters the flight officer, ground crew or pilot will immediately remove themselves from duty pending a PCR test. Flight crews avoid any commercial flights or ground transport and observe social distancing with both passengers and other staff where possible.
Aircraft Boarding procedures
Our goal is to get you onto the safe space in your aircraft with the least amount of human contact possible. In most cases, you will go directly to the aircraft. Our flight crews will welcome you at a social distance and wearing PPE. During boarding, the crew will continue to wear their masks and any one of the ground crews that encounter you or your luggage will have masks and fresh surgical gloves on.
Once you’re airborne
If your aircraft has a flight attendant, they will continue to wear PPE during your flight whilst observing social distancing and carrying out flight duties. You do not need to wear your mask onboard our aircraft unless you want to.
Once the private jet has landed you will go directly to your waiting transport and leave the airport. On occasion, border control may want to check details but this is unusual as we ensure all your paperwork is correct and submitted prior to arrival.
Charter-A is continually reviewing these procedures and exceeding requirements on our private flights. Amendments will be made, as necessary. Our aim is to ensure the least disruption possible to our passengers with the maximum level of safety, comfort, and security always. At present vaccine passports are NOT required but may feature in the comming months.
