Hurricane season is from June to November. Each year, storms, cyclones, and hurricanes batter the Caribbean and the southern U.S. When the big storms are about to hit, travelers need to plan emergency flights home, and Priority One Jets has the experience in arranging on-demand jet charters. We can help you navigate hurricane season through our skills and experience.
Here are three tips to consider that could help you prepare for hurricane evacuations.
EARLY PREPARATION :
Unlike some natural disasters, we can predict hurricane season. Each year, the National Hurricane Center refines its ability to forecast and chart the major storms. If you are a traveler or have family in the hurricane zone, it’s your obligation to have a solid evacuation plan in place. This is especially true if you have small children, elderly or mobility-impaired persons to evacuate. Plan your emergency flights home to get out of harm’s way at least 48 hours before a major storm hits.
Here are the factors to consider:
BE READY :
You’ll want to be ready for your emergency flight home well before the hurricane makes landfall. Travel resources are taxed to the limit before a major storm. It makes sense when you consider that those same fierce winds that threaten your community also impact all aircraft trying to land and depart in the area.
Resist the urge to “wait and see.” If you are responsible for family or employees in the danger zone, get them out fast. Here’s how:
AVIATION PLANS :
The events that occurred in the last few months have created an ongoing impact on aviation. Although many jurisdictions have relaxed their original “shelter-in-place” restrictions, travelers should research individual destinations before booking an emergency flight home. It’s wise to consider alternate destinations if your first choice is unavailable.
Here are some tips:
Our network of charter providers is the kind of team that comes through in a crisis. Hurricane season demands preparation and flexibility, but it should not deter you from travel.
