Coronavirus is prompting more wealthy people to fly private

As dozens of airlines cancel flights in and out of China due to the coronavirus, the wealthy are increasingly turning to flying private jets for travel in and out of the country, according to the BBC. Travelers are getting stuck trying to enter or leave mainland China in the thousands as the deadly virus makes its way around the globe, having claimed over 2,000 people’s lives worldwide per the latest numbers. The wealthy are trying to use their riches to get around the large-scale restrictions. “Over the last four weeks, the number of coronavirus related inquiries Air Partner has received across the business has increased,” global aviation services group Air Partner said in a statement, as quoted by ABC News. “This includes increased Private Jet inquiries, requests for medical equipment cargo flights and emergency evacuations.”
