PrivateFly deluged with last minute enquiries
The UK government has changed its list of countries that require visitors to quarantine once they return home. In response, PrivateFly has fielded many requests from those heading back from France, Netherlands and Malta.

PrivateFly is reporting three times the number of enquiries and bookings for flights out of countries set to be added to the UK's quarantine list on Saturday, compared with 24 hours previously.

CEO Adam Twidell says: “Following the changes to the UK's quarantine list overnight, we've received a surge in demand for private jet travel out of affected countries, with three times the average number of enquiries and bookings for flights to the UK from France, the Netherlands and Malta, before 04:00 on Saturday morning.

“We've also had a number of enquiries from clients booked to travel to these destinations in the coming weeks to change their travel plans in order to avoid quarantine zones. We can arrange flights at very short notice with the flexibility to change route at the last minute. However, availability is limited as the spike in demand coincides with what is already the peak summer season for private leisure travel.”
