At CapJet, we provide aircraft management and jet charter services with the highest level of safety and compliance. At the beginning of the year, the world faced a new challenge with the appearance of the "SARS-CoV-2" virus and its related disease, known as "coronavirus disease 2019" or "COVID-19". Originally localized in China, the virus has spread worldwide over the last several months, causing mass disruption to society.
CapJet is closely monitoring the situation and following all travel, safety, and sanitation guidelines set by the Federal Aviation Administration, the Center for Disease Control, the Department of Homeland Security, and other organizations and agencies. As of July 30th, 2020, the CDC states that "air travel requires spending time in security lines and airport terminals, which can bring you in close contact with other people and frequently touched surfaces. Most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes. However, social distancing is difficult on crowded flights, and you may have to sit near others (within 6 feet), sometimes for hours". These risks can be mitigated by traveling on a charter jet, where it is much easier to practice social distancing, and our aircraft receive thorough cleaning between trips.
If you absolutely must travel during this time, please consider getting in touch with us via telephone or email to see what your options are.
