Oliver Stone, Managing Director, Colibri Aircraft said: “The private jet market has held up extremely well during the Coronavirus crisis. Given well documented troubles in the commercial aviation sector with flights being cancelled for example, and with nearly 700 the fewer touch points flying privately, existing owners of aircraft are keeping hold of them, and the market has seen new companies and people looking to buy their first jets.”
