Abode2 takes off with SHY Aviation to unveil their latest booking technology and why their passengers can travel efficiently and privately with absolute discretion. 

Private jet charters saw a dramatic increase in popularity during the pandemic as flyers saw an alternative option to travel safely without the stresses of commercial travel. Today unusual and exciting destinations have become the latest ‘destinations of choice’, and the luxury traveller is looking for that special trip that can’t be found in a guidebook. Discover The Best European Ski Resorts by Private Jet. Instead of booking luxury hotels, they are looking to take exclusive use of properties in unique places or to have a bespoke ‘campsite’ in the Serengeti. Figures show that over the past 12 months, the use of private jets for tourism and leisure has continued to rise sharply, as discerning travellers look for bespoke experiences and new destinations, many of which can’t easily be reached with commercial airlines.

As the demand for private jet travel continues to grow and with a wide spectrum of options available to do so, from purchasing a jet to flying as a fractional owner and jet cards, the most popular way remains on-demand jet charter. With the recent boom in online flight tracking platforms, jet aircraft owners have become exposed to increased public scrutiny, despite such tracking being seen as a gross breach of privacy. Several well-known figures in both the business and celebrity worlds have stopped using their own jets due to social media tracking their every trip.  With on-demand charter, the aircraft registration number is not associated with the flyer, thus enabling passengers to always remain anonymous, both on the ground and in the air.

SHY opens the door to the world of private aviation, offering clients a bespoke, personal round-the-clock service.

With an increased awareness of the impact of climate change, SHY Aviation is committed to supporting the industry’s stance on this important subject, and therefore in early 2023 will be announcing a new improved carbon strategy to give their flyers the opportunity to participate in programmes to reduce the carbon emitted by their flights. Through the programme SHY will, 100% offset all client flights and will allow flyers to acquire and control additional carbon offset credits. Recent reports indicate that aviation produces just under one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually, which accounts for 2.5% of global CO2 pollution. With the aviation industry committed to a 20% cut in emissions by 2030, SHY’s carbon strategy will allow its clients to play a part in this important commitment.
