COVID-19 Response Plan

Safety is, and always will be, our top priority
Note: This content is monitored daily and updated as needed.

We are exceeding flight demand expectations, making it absolutely paramount that we maintain the safety of our Owners and employees. And while there are obvious health benefits inherent to private aviation, our teams are also working diligently to leverage the full resources of a company of our scale and financial strength. This website and our secure Owner Portal provide a wealth of information about our response to the pandemic and are updated regularly. We continue to take all necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus:


NetJets will follow the guidance of the U.S. Department of State, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO) to prohibit operations to locations it deems unsafe.

Crewmembers are no longer required to conduct pre-flight COVID-19 screenings for Owners. To provide the best-tailored travel advice at the time of booking, Owner Services Teams will continue to evaluate flight details and may request information about health history related to COVID-19 and ask for additional information concerning previous or future travel plans.

While national airspace is open to both commercial and private aviation, there are varying levels of response to COVID-19 from state and local governments across the country. We suggest that Owners understand the various implications before traveling, such as recommended or required self-quarantines and facial coverings. Your Owner Services Team can provide some assistance about the various requirements.

Travel will be allowed on a case-by-case basis following a proper risk assessment by the vice president of flight operations and vice president of safety. Restricted areas include the following:
  • China
  • Hong Kong
Entry into the U.S. requires a negative COVID-19 test. Travelers will need to ensure that every passenger 2 years of age or older will be able to receive a test within 72 hours of the return flight and bring documentation of those tests for departure. For the most up-to-date information, please reach out to your Owner Services Team.

Residents of the U.S. can travel to most of Europe due to lessening COVID-19 restrictions. However, some rules and regulations may still be in place or may change for certain countries. For the most up-to-date information, please reach out to your Owner Services Team. 

  • In accordance with government directives, travel coming from certain countries will be prohibited for non-U.S. citizens and any non-lawful permanent resident of the United States
  • The restrictions apply to those who have been in the following countries 14 days before their planned arrival in the U.S. The countries affected include South Africa, Schengen countries (Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland), the United Kingdom, Ireland, China, Brazil, Iran, and India
  • The ban does not apply to U.S. citizens returning home nor to foreign nationals who are legal permanent residents of the U.S. Also exempt are foreign nationals who are married to U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents; parents and guardians of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents aged under 21; brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, providing both are unmarried and under 21; and children or foster children of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents
Through our partnership with MedAire®, our Owners, employees, and operations have access to expert medical advice 24/7.


We have tested 100% of our Crewmembers and continue to provide testing to all NetJets employees. NetJets Service Hubs™ are continually stocked with COVID-19 tests so Crewmembers can test themselves regularly.

Facial coverings are no longer required by NetJets employees, except where local mandates are still in place. Owners, however, may request Crewmembers wear facial coverings during interactions with them while aboard any NetJets aircraft or in a NetJets facility. Furthermore, if a Crewmember wishes to continue wearing a facial covering, that is up to each individual’s personal discretion.

Amid this global pandemic, we are leveraging our vast infrastructure to implement a logistical strategy that keeps our Crewmembers healthy and meets the new realities of this very challenging time.
  • To curtail the risk of exposure, the avoidance of handshakes between our Crew, Owners, passengers, and any supplier is recommended
  • By clustering aircraft at base locations where we have a high concentration of Crewmembers, we enable Crewmembers to report for duty and return home via their personal vehicle or a NetJets aircraft rather than by commercial airlines
  • Additionally, all Crew travel is closely monitored; those exposed in any manner are prohibited from entering NetJets facilities and aircraft for 10 days and until they are no longer symptomatic


All NetJets aircraft continue to go through our multi-tiered cleaning and disinfecting program in accordance with the guidelines of the CDC and WHO. This helps us ensure a clean and comfortable cabin for each flight.

For post-flight and pre-flight cleanings, our Crewmembers use disinfectant-grade products that are EPA-approved and effective at killing the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, deep cabin cleanings are managed every night by the NetJets Maintenance Team.

NetJets treats its aircraft interiors with an antimicrobial barrier that provides lasting protection from various bacteria, germs, and viruses like the coronavirus. Its durability comes from the molecular bond it forms with surfaces once cured.

While filter systems vary from aircraft to aircraft, all NetJets’ cabins circulate the onboard air with fresh outside air every 2–4 minutes. This time frame is based on various environmental factors (e.g., aircraft altitude, temperature). To compare, most office buildings do this every 15–20 minutes.

Any NetJets aircraft that return from a region identified by the CDC as high risk are immediately quarantined and professionally cleaned.
We will continue to keep you informed of developments. If you have questions about the steps we are taking to ensure your safety, please reach out to us by using the contact information below.
