VistaJet announces double-digit flight traffic and passenger number growth in 2015


VistaJet saw both the number of passengers and its overall flight traffic increase in all of its core markets in 2015, making it the company’s strongest year to date. VistaJet’s worldwide flight traffic increased more than 21% year-on-year when compared with 2014 and the total number of passengers flying with VistaJet increased by more than 23%.

The company again invested in its fleet in 2015, and as of March 10, 2016, it will own 60 branded, premium Global and Challenger aircraft.

The company built on its strong track record for entering new markets by launching in-country services in China with an in-country registered aircraft. As well as notable growth in flights to China, the business also recorded an increased performance across Malaysia, Thailand and South Korea. VistaJet successfully diversified its customer base in 2015, achieving notable growth in customer numbers from Singapore and China.

The company also intends to further invest in growing and developing its operations center in Malta, a key priority for 2016.

Chairman and founder Thomas Flohr said, “2015 was a record year for VistaJet. We maintained our position as the leading global business aviation company, taking our passengers to the destinations that no one else will, with as little as 24 hours’ notice.

“We welcomed more passengers onto our jets than ever before. VistaJet is still increasing its geographic reach in the USA and China, and we are taking market share from our main competitors in all of our core markets.

“It was particularly pleasing to see Asia becoming one of our fastest growing markets, and we were delighted to see strong growth in flight traffic in China. We have clear execution plans to increase the number of destinations we fly to still further and to accelerate our growth in 2016.”
