Living up to its nickname as New York’s sixth borough, Miami is welcoming the Big Apple’s finest in record numbers. Fresh off its 10-year anniversary, the founders of boutique private flying firm Unity Jets have taken their 30+ years of experience in the jet card/fractional industry and eliminated the red tape including no capital commitment or long-term contracts, zero blackout dates and guaranteed availability. “We will see record levels of private aviation travel this holiday season, and South Florida will be the top domestic destination this winter. In fact, the New York City to South Florida travel route will remain one of the most profitable in the country due to the pandemic-induced migration of HNWIs to South Florida’s wealthiest zip codes, whether as a second or primary home,” says Unity Jets CEO Kevin Diemar. “While we will continue to experience those flyers coming down in droves, with many of their business interests still based in New York City, we expect to see a lot of back-and-forth commuting.”;
