VistaJet has been named Best Charter Operator 2016 by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) as part of its annual Icons of Aviation Asia Awards, at an event at the Hotel Icon in Hong Kong earlier this month. A shortlist of potential winners was first narrowed down with a public vote, and the favorites then judged by a panel of AsBAA members.
This has been a busy year for VistaJet, which covers all major global markets. It experienced triple digit growth in flights from Europe and the USA to Asia in the first half, and recently took delivery of three new aircraft, taking its worldwide operating fleet to 70. VistaJet now has the largest owned super-mid to large cabin business jet fleet in the industry.
AsBAA, meanwhile, is a non-profit trade organization representing over 130 corporations, individuals, small businesses and fellow associations in Asia. Its annual awards honors the best of the industry and raises money for its chosen charity, Orbis, the Flying Eye Hospital.
Thomas Flohr, VistaJet chairman and founder, said, “Asia is a really important market for us, so we are particularly delighted to have received this award from AsBAA. Our focus is always to provide the best possible service for our customers, and it is great to be recognized for that. We have worked hard to provide a unique offer for our Asian customers, including individually tailoring the cabin experience, so they can enjoy the same personal and intimate service wherever they are in the world.”
