World’s Elites Didn’t Let Coronavirus Stop Their Travels…

(Tea Party 247) – When there is a major world health crisis, the wealthy are exempt from following government-mandated protocols and restrictions. While the rest of us are being told to stop traveling and essentially hunker down at home for the next month, the world’s elites aren’t letting the coronavirus stop them from being where they need to be, when they need to be there.

Instead of postponing trips until after the coronavirus frenzy calms down, the wealthy of the world are just flying private rather than commercial. Obviously, that’s the best way to go to places around the world where outbreaks may or may not be occurring while possibly carrying the virus themselves.

According to the AFP, private jet demands are soaring:

Fears of massive bankruptcies and calls for emergency bailouts have swept global carriers in recent days with one top US official warning that the outbreak threatens the industry even more than the September 11 attacks.

But for Richard Zaher, CEO of a US-based private jet charter company, the emails and phone calls just keep coming.

“Inquiries have gone through the roof,” he told AFP, noting his company Paramount Business Jets had seen a 400 percent increase in queries, with bookings up roughly 20-25 percent.

“It is completely coronavirus,” he added.

“We are seeing our regular private jet clients flying as they normally do. However, we have this surge of clients coming our way and the majority of them have never flown private.”

Across the world airlines have been slashing capacity and passengers cancelling travel plans as countries block arrivals to stem the spread of COVID-19.

ForwardKeys, a travel analytics company, estimates as many as 3.3 million seats on transatlantic flights alone are disappearing.

Zaher said many new bookings were from clients who had emergencies and either could not find seats on commercial routes or did not want to risk them.

One recent booking involved a woman who flew her elderly mother across the United States.

“Her mum was on oxygen and needed to be flown coast to coast,” Zaher said.

“They felt it was necessary to pay a premium in order to avoid flying commercial and to be together during this uncertain time.”

A spokeswoman for Air Charter Service in Hong Kong told AFP they had seen a 70 percent increase in fixed bookings from the financial hub, Shanghai, and Beijing in January and February, and had recorded a 170 percent jump in new customers during the same period.

“It is the kind of people who are wealthy enough but who would not necessarily charter, who are maybe chartering as a one-off,” said James Royds-Jones, Air Charter Service’s director of executive jets for Asia Pacific.

Because when you’re wealthy, the world literally revolves around you. It’s so nice that they are taking the consideration to fly privately to possibly contract and/or spread the coronavirus that has gripped the world in panic and fear.

If only people would just stay put, maybe the threat would end and we could all get back to our normal lives.

  1. Their phony ‘carbon tax’ scheme doesn’t stop them either. But all well & good, flying Mom privately to be with family for her safety & to expose her to as few people as possible hardly seems to match the headline. Remember, part of the plan for destroying family involved the stereotypical ‘Organization Man’ and frequent moves mandated by corporate weakening family ties & encouraging the young to attach themselves to new un-family peer groups & so forth to the re-establishment of the old feudalists. It would be the anti-family, elite planners who set this sort of estrangement and long distance family situation up. The same ones who own and fly private jets all the time. Blame them if you’re looking for something to blame legitimately.

  2. That is easy enough to stop. They cannot fly until they have taken the test and came up negative. Private or commercial. Don’t even let them near the airport. How long does it take to get the results of the test. Can we test at the entrance to the airport?

    • You would almost have to test at the front door. Five minutes after you took the test you interacted with someone with the virus how long would it take for you to test positive. How often are you going to test the test givers. If they catch the virus will they be passing it to everyone they test. I think I will stay home as much as I can.

  3. Just goes to show you… the Government & the Elites know how to run your life better than you do. Give up your freedoms for the promise of security and you’ll be a servant/slave to the government.

  4. Yeah like all those privileged A-holes in Clearwater Florida! I hope they all pay a horrible price for their arrogance!

  5. How do you think Global Elites, Tom Hanks and his wife got to Australia? How many people were infected by them?
    Global Elites don’t care about us common deplorable folks.
    God bless President Trump and the USA.
    MAGA/KAG 2020

    • Amen to that!!!
      I’d rather be a deplorable with integrity then those elite God hating baby killers anyday.
