UPDATE TO AUGUST 05, 2020
In coordination with our partners, we have implemented preventive measures and policies in collaboration with our operators to minimize the risk of transmission of Covid-19 to our customers, pilots and employees. Know that the planes that we offer, are also treated.
JetsBorder and its partners take great care to keep aircraft clean and safe for passengers. Hand sanitizers and cleaning wipes are offered by our employees to all customers. In addition, we make sure that the cockpit and cabin are cleaned and disinfected regularly, and the crew always has a disinfectant kit on hand. JetsBorder does not cancel any private jet flight to Italy or any country affected by a sudden increase in cases of coronavirus. The private jets and private jet lounges we use are much safer than the terminals at major airports, hence our decision, in coordination with our partners, to continue to offer flights without change for the moment.
The epidemic of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), originally from the central city of Wuhan, China, has been declared a world emergency by the World Health Organization. EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) has just published a set of good practices to follow before or during a flight.

Traveling by private jet during the coronavirus epidemic has its advantages. Generally, flying in a private jet decreases the risk of contracting a contagious disease; passengers are picked up at their preferred locations and fly via less crowded environments. FBOs dedicated to private aviation are quieter and more isolated than those of commercial airlines.
However, advice was also sent to operators. JetsBorder asked the crews to use protective equipment (gloves or single-use mask) in the event of contact with passengers showing symptoms of acute respiratory infection (cough, frequent sneezing, stuffy nose, sore throat or similar) . In addition to this, the instructions for reporting the state of health to the authorities are known. The latter must be followed in the event of poor health of recognized passengers.
