Many might wonder the reasoning behind the link between LFMN and KTEB, as many of the other routes used by private jet passengers usually link the major business hubs. The answer is simple: “It’s the Russians. They like to mix business with pleasure”. “There are so many Russians who own properties in the Nice/ Cote d’Azur area of France. They frequently travel to the states and London for business.” said Liam Bailey, the global head of research.
