Must read

The rich are preparing for a summer of international travel by charging up their private jet travel cards, according to one of the industry’s big players.

Air Partner said new UK customers have added £750,000 worth of deposits to their accounts with the company in February and March.

It also saw a 15 per cent rise in sales and renewals of its jet travel cards year-on-year.

However, this figure is when compared with February and March 2020, when Covid-19 started to weigh on international travel.

Chief executive Mark Briffa said it was no surprise that a rise in US demand continued in February and March. 

He said: ‘This has also been the case in the UK as confidence returns ahead of the anticipated easing of restrictions.’ 

The Government is to say soon on whether it will allow international holidays to restart next month.
