“Business aviation activity saw a sharp recovery in 2021, with a spectacular rebound in business jet demand in the second half of the year, as Covid-19 restrictions were lightened in the US and Europe,” Shishir Baijal, chairman and managing director at Knight Frank India stated. “Demand was especially evident for leisure travel, with surges during weekends and public holidays as well as around popular sports and lifestyle events.”
