Business jet company launches app to promote one-way and empty leg flights

LONDON, Aug 30 (Bernama-GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VistaJet, global aviation company, has launched VistaJet Direct, an app-based digital membership offering priority access to VistaJet’s one-way and empty leg flights at preferential rates.

VistaJet sets another milestone of what the future of private travel will look like, becoming the only company in its sector to offer a complete portfolio of flight solutions, with Program, On Demand and the new VistaJet Direct. Busy schedules and last-minute decisions are part of the everyday for most business travelers. The new digital membership is ideal for anyone looking for the service and global reach offered by VistaJet, without any upfront flying commitment.

Continuing a series of initiatives aimed at simplifying private flying, a yearly membership of only $10,000 will allow customers to request bookings on all available VistaJet aircraft prior to the charter market.

Unlike some of its competitors that offer seat-only booking and no guarantees, VistaJet Direct gives customers the opportunity to have the full VistaJet experience, including sole use of a jet, a cabin hostess trained by the British Butler Institute, catering from the world’s most renowned restaurants, and a comprehensive in-flight service. Once a booking is confirmed, VistaJet guarantees aircraft availability on one of its wholly-owned fleet of over 70 identical aircraft.

Through the app’s in-built geo-location services, Members will receive a push notification to their smartphone when a flight near them or from their favorite cities is available. All they have to do is tap the notification and book. The app offers real-time fixed pricing, and the entire booking process can be completed in minutes. Customers and their teams can request flights through smartphone app or desktop, along with catering and additional ground services.

Thomas Flohr, Chairman and Founder said: “Today’s launch is all about giving our customers, and all business travelers, as much flexibility and choice as possible. With the addition of VistaJet Direct, flying with us is easier than ever. Customers can now book a flight and access the full array of our services no matter where in the world they are, at a time that suits them.”
