Jetex Celebrates Women In Aviation And 30th Edition Of Rallye Aïcha Des Gazelles Du Maroc

Since 1990, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc has been a pioneer in innovation as the only women’s rally raid in the world that takes place 100% off-road. The unique event brings women aged 18 to 71 from around the world together in the Moroccan desert. From the first days, the rally has been developing a new vision for motorsport: no speeding and no GPS – just old-school navigation and the spirit of adventure.

The women who take part in this rally, known as “Gazelles”, are of different generations, social backgrounds and nationalities. In 4x4s, crossovers, quad bikes, SSVs or trucks, they join to experience the unique competition based on the values of tolerance, solidarity and determination, where respect for the host country is a priority through the rally’s non-profit mission, which cares about the environment.

Jetex continually reaffirms a commitment to a diverse workforce as it is dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests. In celebration of the 30th edition of the event, Manon Woitellier and Ingrid Laboute from the European Office of Jetex will join the rally to raise awareness and celebrate courage, loyalty, solidarity, environmental and social impact – the values shared both by the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc and Jetex.

Throughout two weeks, from 18 September to 2 October 2021, Jetex invites you to follow the progress of Manon and Ingrid (Team 274) on its Instagram account where it will share daily news as Team Jetex experiences an adventure of a lifetime. With five locations across Morocco and the flagship Jetex Marrakech private terminal, Jetex will also host a number of activities to support and encourage its first-ever team to participate in the legendary rally.

Cost Of Flying By Private Jet

Booking a flight on a private jet has long been viewed as a swanky, sometimes out-of-reach indulgence. There’s a reason flying private has its glamorous connotations. Convenience and efficiency aside, even the smallest aircraft come with smart recliner-style seats, sumptuous sofas and the latest tech – not to mention state-of-the-art entertainment consoles.

There is a significant untapped market for private aviation: a recent study by McKinsey showed that 93% of people who could afford to fly private currently do not as they have not explored the benefits and costs of traveling by private jet.

Private jet charter pricing depends on the number of factors, including type of aircraft, trip length, catering, airport landing fees and idle time between flights. There are also many market-determined variables that impact the price, including supply and demand.

However, private charter has become more affordable in the recent years with private flight costs going down by 30% to 50%, bringing them closer than ever to the rates of first and business class tickets on commercial carriers. However, chartering a private jet allows to maximize time at the destination and minimize the number of hours spent traveling. Private planes also offer more individualized amenities to passengers than first-class commercial flights.

On average, the price of chartering a private jet is $10,000 per hour, depending on the type of service and location. Empty leg charter flights may cost up to 50% less than the cost of a full dedicated charter flights.

An interesting aspect of those willing to travel by private jet is that the charter price is for the entire aircraft rather than per passenger. Therefore, hiring a private jet with friends or family members for a holiday getaway or to celebrate birthdays and special occasions can offer a great value.

For business travelers, the biggest benefit is the time they save, both for their employees and corporate partners. Another major advantage for private air travel is that the customer sets their own itineraries. Most flights, therefore, are point-to-point, and you determine when you depart.

Below are some of the popular business and leisure routes along with typical market rates for an on-demand charter:

Jetex Fuels The Future With Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Jetex is committed to ambitious emissions reduction goals set by The International Air Transport Association (IATA). The company is at the forefront of the shift towards a lower carbon aviation industry as it introduces biofuel at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris.

Jetex, an award-winning global leader in executive aviation, continues to offer more ways of reducing carbon emissions of travel. The company began offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced by TotalEnergies in France, made from used cooking oil at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris, from June 2021.

SAF gives an impressive reduction of up to 90% in carbon emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to traditional jet fuel it replaces and complies with RED sustainability criteria. Fueling at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris, is facilitated by a 100% electric refueling truck which further reduces carbon footprint of the operation.

“We take pride in being part of the aviation community that has yet again proven to be accountable and responsible, taking a positive step towards reducing carbon emissions. Jetex has reiterated its stance towards this goal by making it easier for customers to avail SAF at one of its FBO base at Paris Le Bourget. As a one-stop shop aviation service provider, we are pleased to be able to include SAF arrangements as part of our world-class services for customers looking to meet the challenge of carbon neutrality”, commented Sufiyan Asif, Director of Fuel at Jetex.

Progressing the development and commercial deployment of SAF is crucial to decarbonizing the aviation industry. According to IATA, more than 100 million liters of SAF will be produced in 2021. The use of SAF is a major focus for Jetex and forms part of the company’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 through a series of short, medium and long-term initiatives. It is vital for the future of aviation to continue to address climate change and Jetex remains focused on playing its part to reduce the impact on the planet.
