Private Jet Travel is Safer, Becoming More Accessible for LGBTQ+ Folks – Yahoo News

Travel by private jet has long been reserved for celebrities, sports figures, and the moneyed elite. But the desire for more breathing room, quicker travel, and safety in the time of a global pandemic has led savvy entrepreneurs to begin opening private jet travel to a wider market. And the LGBTQ+ community is helping lead the way.
Two companies, in particular, are seizing the opportunity.
Last year, Wheels Up became the first IGLTA (the international association of the LGBTQ+ travel industry) global partner from the private aviation sector. With over 1,500 private aircraft at its disposal, the Wheels Up promises to help expand global LGBTQ+ representation in the travel sector.
With an out CEO, Advanced Aviation Team is likewise opening travel by private aircraft to a wider market by acting as a broker of available private jets, rather than owning and operating its own fleet.
“As a broker, we don’t own or operate any aircraft,” Advanced Aviation Team founder and CEO, Gregg Brunson-Pitts, tells Out Traveler. “We go to the marketplace of available aircraft and negotiate the terms of a charter contract with owners and operators. A good broker, like Advanced Aviation Team, will then oversee trips for clients from beginning to end. Owners and operators just have a small pool of aircraft to choose from. I have any number of aircraft for any number of passengers at my disposal.”

Brunson-Pitts is a former White House Travel Director and spent last year flying every candidate from the 2020 presidential campaign. Not every decision the company makes is based on the bottom line, and they have a track record of activism and giving back to prove it. For example, Brunson-Pitts and Advanced Aviation Team were recently on the frontlines in the battle against the pandemic, providing a plane to José Andrés of the World Central Kitchen to fly in much-needed PPE to the Navajo Nation in the American southwestern states.
Brunson-Pitts says being a member of the LGBTQ+ community has its privileges, giving him “a built-in network of aviation professionals and other people” in the industry who understand the unique needs of LGBTQ+ travelers and are willing to go the extra mile for family. He is also quick to thank his partner and husband, Brooks, who he says “has undeniably been the best influence on my career,” adding he could not have done it without him.

Rather than strictly serving as a broker of private jets, Wheels Up operates its own fleet of 300 private aircraft while also partnering with Delta Airlines to provide access to an additional fleet of 1,250 safety-vetted and verified private aircraft.
Stephanie Chung, chief growth officer at Wheels Up, tells Out Traveler the company offers three levels of membership to companies and private individuals with varying levels of services and reservation options. All members of the LGBTQ+ community who sign up with Wheels Up will receive unparalleled personalized service and near-instant access to a fleet of private jets ranging from the King Air 350i to large-cabin Boeing and Airbus jets.
“As a Global Partner, we are committed to this audience to deliver the world-class safety, service, and flexibility that Wheels Up is known for,” Chung tells Out Traveler.

Chung says Wheels Up is adding a few extra perks aimed at the LGBTQ+ community on top of its already exemplary service.
“All IGLTA members who join Wheels Up will have access to membership features including our Wheels Up Down program, Shared Flights, empty-leg Hot Flights, Shuttles, and The Community, an online platform of members-only forums to facilitate flight-sharing – enabling members to further reduce their cost of flying private,” Chung explains. “In support of this partnership, we will introduce seasonal event opportunities geared to IGLTA members.”

Wheels Up and Advance Aviation Team see travel via private jet to be a safer alternative to travel on large commercial airlines. Rather than flying with hundreds of unknown travelers from around the world all crammed into the closed environment of a large-cabin passenger jet, smaller aircraft means fewer if any fellow travelers. Smaller aircraft also means it’s easier to quickly clean and sanitize a plane compared to larger commercial aircraft seeking to turn a plane around for departure as quickly as possible.
When asked if private charters like Wheels Up are the future of travel, Chung sounds positives when saying the company was founded in part to “democratize private aviation” and adding “more people are turning to private aviation.”
While Brunson-Pitts doesn’t foresee private jet travel becoming affordable to the average traveler, he does see “a hole in the market that can be filled with creative ways to democratize the industry,” listing off several scenarios for at least making private jet travel more accessible.
“There are empty aircraft flying around all the time because they have to get in position for trips and paying customers,” Brunson-Pitts continues. “You could advertise those legs and for people who want to make themselves available for those trips. This requires some flexibility in scheduling that most travelers don’t have."
Another point upon which both Brunson-Pitts and Chung can agree is the validity of the old adage that once a person has traveled via private jet, they’ll never want to fly commercial again.
“You heard right,” says Chung.
“The short answer is yes, especially if the traveler can afford it,” echoes Brunson-Pitts.
A Utah family says their vacation ended before it started when they were denied boarding on a Carnival cruise ship.
Though built specifically for polar sailings, the "Resolution" will also venture to other parts of the world.
Vaccinated international travelers will be able to resume trips to the U.S. Unvaccinated Americans will face stricter testing requirements.
The Justice Department and officials in six states have filed a lawsuit to block a partnership formed by American Airlines and JetBlue, claiming that it will reduce competition and lead to higher fares. The Justice Department said Tuesday that the agreement will eliminate important competition in New York and Boston and reduce JetBlue's incentive to compete against American in other parts of the country. Attorney General Merrick Garland said the lawsuit was about ensuring fair competition that lets Americans fly at affordable prices.
United has embraced cargo flights more enthusiastically than any other passenger airlines. Now it's looking to hold onto its freight revenue post-pandemic.
In some circles, Robinhood Markets (NASDAQ: HOOD) has become associated with risky investment strategies and gamified trading. Elsewhere, Robinhood is lauded for pioneering commission-free trades and fractional shares, making the stock market more accessible to younger generations. On the money manager side, CEO Mortimer Buckley recently added Airbnb (NASDAQ: ABNB) stock to Vanguard's portfolio, which now owns roughly 7.9 million shares.
White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients announced Monday morning that the new travel policy will go into effect in November.
Hawaii officials are facing pressure to increase COVID-19 testing for travelers as the islands deal with a record surge of new infections, hospitalization and deaths. Despite evidence that more COVID-19 testing would help reduce the spread of disease, especially in an isolated destination like Hawaii, state leaders have resisted the implementation of a two-test policy for arriving travelers. Earlier this summer, the state removed all testing requirements for vaccinated people.
Southwest (LUV) plans to add nearly two dozen new flights to Austin and increase frequencies on its existing Hawaii services in 2022.
The Beizhong International Travel Agency in the eastern city of Tianjin has had only one customer since coronavirus outbreaks that began in July prompted Chinese leaders to renew city lockdowns and travel controls. Most of China is virus-free, but the abrupt, severe response to outbreaks has left would-be tourists jittery about traveling to places they might be barred from leaving. China's “zero tolerance” strategy of trying to isolate every case and stop transmission has helped keep the country where the virus first was detected in late 2019 largely free of disease.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States on Monday extended restrictions at its land borders with Canada and Mexico through Oct. 21 that bar nonessential travel such as tourism by foreigners despite Ottawa's decision to open its border to vaccinated Americans. Canada on Aug. 9 began allowing fully vaccinated U.S. visitors for nonessential travel. The United States has continued to extend the extraordinary restrictions on Canada and Mexico on a monthly basis since March 2020, when they were imposed to address the spread of COVID-19.
The Biden administration is rolling out new international travel policies affecting Americans and noncitizens alike who want to fly into the U.S. The goal is to restore more normal air travel after 18 months of disruption caused by COVID-19. The across-the-board rules, which will take effect in November, will replace a hodgepodge of confusioning restrictions. All adult foreign nationals traveling to the U.S. will be required to be fully vaccinated before boarding their flight.

CHICAGO/LONDON (Reuters) -America's reopening to international air travelers can't come soon enough for U.S. and European airlines which have sorely missed the lucrative transatlantic market. The Biden administration's decision on Monday to reopen the country to fully-vaccinated air travelers from around the world will allow tens of thousands of passengers to fly to the United States from early November. For the large traditional European airline players, like British Airways-owner IAG, Lufthansa and Air France-KLM, it represents a chance to recover the transatlantic routes that are key to their profits.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Tuesday urged U.S. passenger airlines "to commit to take more action" to address reports of violent or unruly passengers. The FAA said the industry is facing a record number of airline passenger disturbances, and it plans to soon hold similar meetings with representatives from airports and labor. The meeting with groups, including Airlines for America, a group representing American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and others, discussed "ways the industry can work together to reduce the number of unruly passenger incidents," the FAA said, adding it "believes additional action by the airlines and all aviation stakeholders is necessary to stop the unsafe behavior."
