The UPK contains:

  • A gown with long sleeves and aprons to enhance protection from potential spillage

  • Hand sanitizer for when standard hand washing facilities are not available

  • Instructions on how to properly don, remove, and dispose of personal protection equipment

  • Soft-sided for easy storage

  • Assembled under strict ISO 9001 quality assurance standards

FAQs

  • Is it safer to fly with a private jet rather than a commercial airline during the pandemic ?

    Flying on a private jet will facilitate social distancing by avoiding close contact with other passengers in the aircraft. The fact that private jets benefit in most locations of dedicated standalone VIP terminal facilities and channels also prevents the potential exposure by avoiding busy airport terminals, check-in counters as well as boarding procedures. Moreover, the number of passengers is limited in a private jet reducing the risk of being exposed to the virus.

     

  • Is Global Jet still operating Private and Charter Flights ?

    Yes, Global Jet is still operating flights based on certain travel restrictions.

     

  • What hygienic and safety measures are being taking on board ?

    Global Jet aircraft are equipped with protection kits, called UPK which are available if needed for customers & crews as well as highly effective disinfectant agents (Bacoban) for sterilizing the cabin before and after each flight. Hydroalcoholic gels and masks are provided to passengers on board.

     

  • Do you have masks on board ?

    Yes, Global Jet can provide surgical masks for adults and children.

     

  • Is it mandatory for passengers to wear a mask when flying on board Global Jet aircraft ?

    The mask is not compulsory for the passengers; they will be available on board upon request.

     

  • Is the aircraft cabin disinfected before and after each flight ?

    Yes, they are by our cabin crew. Furthermore, and on request by our customers, we could organise with our partners located in some major hubs, a deeper disinfection of the cabin at additional cost.

     

  • Is the catering well monitored on board ?

    Yes, we have increased our safety, hygiene and procedures with all of our catering partners and therefore is still possible to serve you on board. There might be some limitations and restrictions for some products inevitably.

     

  • How long can the virus live on a surface ?

    The virus can live up to 72 hours on a surface when there is enough humidity and if that surface is not disinfected.

     

  • How long can the virus survive in an aircraft ?

    The dry atmosphere in an aircraft when flying creates a highly hostile environment for the virus to survive, therefore being on board the aircraft is safer than being in a humid atmosphere on ground.
