“The rich people never find private jet as a way of life. We are going to reach out to them post COVID-19, likewise lowering our bar to meet with the upper-middle class, business executives and corporate companies.
“The private jet business does not ordinarily warrant marketing, but in view of the business outlook now, we will be reaching out to improve patronage.
“ We are going to stop our previous attitude of “our customers know us”. We are now going by the slogan: “We are going to the customers.”
“ We will be taking the private jet business to the people rather than wait for people to come.”
