Updated: Jan 25

Of all the trials and challenges the COVID-19 Pandemic has greeted us with—from switching to remote work environments, staying safe, and being apart from loved ones—one of the greatest transitions we’ve been forced to make is how we think about travel.


At Abeona, we’ve made it our mission to simplify and streamline safe, private flights for those who simply need to be on the move.


With safety and social responsibility at the forefront, we’ve all been tasked with reevaluating the why and how of travel—especially air travel.


That being said, just because the logistics of air travel have become more complicated doesn’t mean that flying is any less necessary to travelers and passengers.


With a desire to continue our travel endeavors but a need to monitor safety (ours and others alike), flying might seem more complex than ever.


In this article, we’ll make sure to outline a few things you need to know about traveling during a pandemic along with guides on restrictions and helpful information from our industry-leading team that can help you change the way you travel (especially during a public health event) forever.


What You Need to Know About Private Flight Travel During the Pandemic

Primarily, the most important thing to know about flying (and travel in general) during the pandemic is that the regulations, rules, and procedures are always changing.


As the pandemic evolves, so do travel conditions and restrictions.


Because of this, there is no one-size-fits-all guide that always applies to air travel during the pandemic, but at Abeona, we’re committed to keeping you abreast and aware of every change as soon as they’re implemented.


Opting for private charters and empty leg flights during the pandemic can help you avoid some of the stress and safety concerns that go hand-in-hand with the coronavirus.


You don’t need to be anxious about crowds because you’ll be flying privately, and you don’t need to be concerned about the sanitization of a commercial airline because you won’t be flying commercial.


Additionally, you won’t need to worry about testing logistics because any private aviation company worth their salt will assist you with these regulations.


Private flight does indeed help you mitigate health risks, but that doesn’t mean that you’re not required to abide by federal regulations. Below are a few things you need to know about flying during the pandemic.


Current Travel Restrictions To/From United States and Canada

  • Travelers entering Canada—regardless of citizenship—must follow quarantine requirements to keep everyone safe.

  • Canadian citizens (including dual citizens), people registered under the Indian Act, permanent residents of Canada, or protected persons are allowed to enter Canada.

  • For up-to-date regulations, visit the travel restriction and exemption guide here.

Current Travel Restrictions To/From the EU & Beyond

  • Because each country in the EU is creating its own unique regulations, we highly recommend researching the individual rules and regulations that go hand-in-hand with the area or areas where you’re planning to travel.

  • Abeona is happy and ready to assist you in research and compliance for your travel plans, to the UK and beyond.

  • Travel to the Bahamas, Turks, Aruba, Florida, and other areas of the United States are also implementing their own regulations. Research about these regulations and mandatory tests will be required.

  • Fully vaccinated foreign nationals may be allowed to enter Canada for discretionary travel

  • It’s important to note that traveling to red list countries and territories within the EU is not advised.
