Executive charter group VistaJet is joining forces with fractional provider Bombardier Flexjet to provide seamless access to each company’s respective service area. VistaJet’s fleet of Bombardier Learjets, Challengers and Global Expresses operates largely in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Flexjet’s Learjets and Challengers will provide flights within North America, with customers of both companies paying the same prices for the respective services. VistaJet took delivery of seven new aircraft last year and, according to chairman Thomas Flohr, expects to increase its fleet by about the same number this year. In Asia, the company has bases in Hong Kong and the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. Flohr told AIN that access to China has improved, with flight permits now taking just eight hours to arrange.
