Eclipse sees client base expand as passengers look for safety
According to WingX European private jet travel was up 25% in August 2021 when compared to a pre-pandemic levels in August 2019. Air charter broker business Eclipse is riding the wave.
Eclipse says it has seen an increase in the number of bookings to summer climate destinations like Miami and Scottsdale in the U.S., Bahamas and Turks & Caicos in the Caribbean and Nice and Mykonos in Europe.

Eclipse Air Charter has expanded its client base throughout 2021 as passengers look for security when travelling, even as COVID-19 travel restrictions are being lifted.

"People don't want to 'just book' an important trip at the click of a button," says Lily Karapetyan, director of charter sales at Eclipse. "They want to go through entry restrictions, double and triple check they have the correct vaccines, tests and documentation, and find out what happens if the rules change. We've become more like advisors rather than private jet brokers, because we're guiding our clients through the entire process."

As an ARGUS Registered Charter Broker, Eclipse Air Charter has undergone the organisation's Charter Evaluation and Qualification (CHEQ) process.

"Where, when and why our clients travel may change, but their comfort and safety should never vary," says Yasmin Alam, Eclipse founder and managing director. "We're honoured to have achieved the ARGUS Registered Charter Broker rating, especially at a time when health and safety is more important than ever."

Part of an expansion project, Eclipse opened its international headquarters in Mayfair, London, in Autumn 2020, allowing it to double its staff. This move followed an expansion in 2018 when it opened its New York City office.
