Coronavirus & Flight Planning

With the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus as well as the need for chartered flights to get people home, flight planning has become more important than ever to help ensure flight routes aren’t just efficient but as safe as possible.

Flight planning is a crucial part of any flight, for any destination or route that’s taken. Flight planning itself involves a very cutthroat process that requires mapping out routes, alternative routes as well as the criteria of the flight.

The Benefits Of Flight Planning

When flight planning, especially during disasters be it natural or man-made, there are a number of things that need to be considered from aircraft availability to global epidemics such as rapidly spreading disease. With the right flight planning software to hand, such as the software our dedicated teams use here at Flightworx, risks can be limited, flight times minimised and most importantly, lives saved.

OTHER BENEFITS OF FLIGHT PLANNING INCLUDE:

  • Money saved with costs minimised
  • Fuel use estimated more accurately
  • Problems/delays better dealt with and managed

Flights aren’t as easy as car journeys and bike rides despite many assuming otherwise. Much more intricate planning is needed to not only ensure a safe and secure flight but also ensure that any hiccups along the way can be dealt with without delay.

During times of disaster such as with the Coronavirus, appropriate flight planning is also needed to ensure that disease is not spread further.

Jump back just a few years and disease was mainly spread by ships however today, aviation is also a huge factor in global epidemics such as these. As such, flight planning is crucial to help minimise this. Factors including departure destination as well as arrival must be considered.

Ensuring the necessary documentation has been completed and authorised. Are there any air restrictions in place that need to be overcome by selecting a different route and if so, how will this affect departure times as well as length of flight or ability to use a particular airport?
