New Report Reveals Elite Flier Preferences

Maximising time, control, perceptions of safety, mitigating risk, and perceived value are the five main factors the ultra high-net-worth (UHNW) population takes into account when choosing how to fly, a new report suggests.

Global UHNW intelligence and data company, Wealth-X, and global private aviation company, VistaJet, recently released a customer-centric analysis on the private aviation industry.

The Jet Traveler Report: The Global Perspective on Who Flies Privately and How provides insight into the profiles of private fliers around the globe, how they fly, and what is most important to them.

Wealth-X leveraged its international database of dossiers on UHNW individuals with a net worth of USD30 million or greater to profile passengers.

Winston Chesterfield, director, custom research, Wealth-X, elaborated, “By identifying who these individuals are and understanding how and why they fly, we gain a clear understanding of the choices facing them and the typologies that exist in the market. It doesn’t always come down to a simple matter of personal wealth – in fact, many owners are also members of private flying programmes. It is common for the ultra-wealthy to use more than one way of flying, depending on their needs.”
