The demand for luxury private jets is now booming among elites as they opt to fly on their own to avoid pandemic restrictions.

Business jet take-offs and landings are up 40 percent year-on-year in the United States amid demand from the super-rich.

They are now at their highest point prior to the 2008 financial crisis and driven by large companies expanding their private jet privileges for their top executives, according to MSNBC.

The same story is apparent globally too.

This year alone, over 4.2m private jet flights have taken place, according to aviation data provider WingX.

During the first week of November, private flights were up 54 percent on the same period last year, and up 16 percent in 2019.

The demand has become so high it has forced Flexjet to stop taking on new customers for its Jet Card program.

Meanwhile, NetJets reported the highest demand for flying in its nearly 60-year history.

FT reports that the company is also investing $2.5bn in 100 new aircraft.

Such demand is driven by the super-rich, Hollywood elite, and Wall Street.

The demand is also driven by slimmed timetables and constantly changing flight times.

This year, as many Americans are losing their jobs and homes, the world’s 500 richest people added $1.2 trillion to their fortunes, according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Then there are politicians.

Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported that John Kerry's family private jet took over a dozen flights in 2021, records from Flight Aware revealed.

The jet, which is tied to Biden's point person for lowering greenhouse gas emissions, has already completed 16 flights since January this year.

The news of the flights has now raised concerns about how much the Kerry family contributed to the problem.

According to the Daily Mail, the average decent-sized private jet consumes 380 gallons of fuel, and emits two tonnes of CO2 every hour.

The annual fuel bill for private flights is around $U.S. 450,000 a year.

For a more clear context, the total carbon footprint of an average person is approximately eight tonnes per year.

This imprint has not stopped the sales of private jets, as manufacturers report a massive increase in orders.

To help keep the conscience of elites clear, they can also find a helicopter with vegan seats.
