As you may have heard, selfie queen Kim Kardashian-West has taken a highly publicized break from social media after falling victim to a recent robbery in Paris. Many have speculated that she was a target because the public could easily follow her activity and whereabouts through her constant social media posts. Chronicling your travel online can be very risky if it’s not managed right, which is why we value discretion at the highest level.
High-net-worth individuals are often a target, and as such, maintaining privacy standards can be one of the best ways to protect yourself. At Magellan Jets, our customers travel safely knowing that their safety extends far beyond their flight when doing business with us,
There are many layers of due diligence we take so that our valued clients fly safely in our jets -not just from a maintenance perspective, but from a privacy perspective as well.
- We encourage our clients to be cautious about what they post on social media ahead, during, or after takeoff. It’s relatively easy for people on the internet to figure out where the flight is departing from or arriving to by looking at the surroundings in a photo. With mobile location enabled, a photo could also easily be tracked to a precise location, which can cause trouble.
- We also encourage our clients to be careful about broadcasting they’re traveling because it could imply their home is vacant. A thief may be inspired to act fast, and as such, family members could be left at risk.
- Magellan Jets does not ask clients to post on its own social media pages as a way to maintain our clients’ trust. Some companies use their high-net-worth clients or well-known clients to bolster their own brands and at Magellan Jets, we value privacy at every level.
Flying private should mean just that - flying with privacy top of mind. If clients choose to fly private, then they should have the option to “fly under the radar” with the company they choose.
It’s no secret that safety is our top priority and we make sure we go above industry standards set by third party services, (Wyvern, ARG/US) to deliver the safest flights possible. For us, proactively addressing safety concerns are done on the ground, at booking, in the air, and online.
