While most of us had spent our last Diwali between the four walls of homes, the dip in the COVID-19 cases, means that this festive season is going to see a bit more fanfare. That said, the situation remains uncertain and wealthy Indians want to ensure that nothing comes in way of their celebrations. This is why they are booking private jets and flying far-off international destinations with their family, friends, and even pets.
Wealthy Indians Are Flying Abroad For Durga Puja & Diwali Celebrations
Private jet operators have seen a huge surge in the bookings of the months October and November. The festive season has led to a demand for chartered flights for Diwali and Durga Puja celebrations. As more international destinations are easing travel restrictions, charter flight operations are seeing heavy demand. Charter flight companies also expect to see a boom in bookings for vacation destinations during Christmas and New Year.
