Czech operator ABS Jets reports that its flight hours are on the rise, even as much as 20 per cent higher than before the pandemic. The company operates mostly Gulfstream G550s and G650s, Embraer Legacy 600/650s and the Falcon 7X, all of which continue to be popular with customers. “Embraers have become more popular for European charters compared to pre-COVID times,” comments CEO Jan Kralik. “Flying unusual destinations is still a bit challenging due to valid restrictions, so we mostly fly our customers to usual holiday destinations.
“I want to pay tribute to our employees and their sense in understanding all the restrictions and their ability to adapt quickly to the changing environment. It is still not easy to provide 100 per cent support to our customers while facing difficulties with supply chains, facing virus threats and maintaining strict observance of all the pandemic restrictions. I would really like to thank all of them for their patience and support.
“I hope we will stay away from the virus spread within our facilities as there is so much to do, and we will need every single employee to achieve our goals. I also wish everyone to stay safe, and I am looking forward for boosting the business next year even more.”
