The market has introduced an altered playbook "“ with fresh rules that challenge our thinking, business practices and even values. Instant marketplaces have been created through globalization and complex, highly efficient supply chains now compete for recognition. The recent economic slowdown is an important chapter of this story and the trends indicate the management's need for greater mobility, organizational agility, knowledge integration and speed.

The global economy rewards information amalgamation, customer interaction, directorial dexterity and swiftness. To achieve these, an organization would need mobility for their employees including executives, board members and specialist teams.

The Need for Business Travel
Civil aviation today touches nearly every aspect of our lives, and its success will, to a degree, shape our society and the world economy over the next century.

Business aircraft provide efficient, productive and secure business travel which is in reality not a luxury but rather another business communication tool "“ an air transport option tailored to the specific needs of companies and individuals rather than scheduled airline departures.
