Carol Cork, co-founder and Marketing Director of PrivateFly comments: “The Hawker 800 was a noticeable favourite with our clients this summer thanks to its increasing availability in Europe, with a number of new, well-priced aircraft becoming available on the charter market. And while the rise of Mykonos has been apparent for a couple of years now, this summer it made a very firm marker on the luxury travel map with our clients, moving into our top ten destinations for the first time.

We had a very busy summer in every respect - with flight booking numbers 42% higher than the same period last year.”

The findings are part of PrivateFly’s latest insights report Private Jet Charter Trends, which reveals the booking and flying behaviour of its private jet customers between July and September 2018. Other findings include:
