VistaJet has received top honors at the Asian Business Aviation Association’s Icons of Aviation Awards 2018. In addition to being named the Most Innovative Company, VistaJet earned Best Operator for the third consecutive year. Presented by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA), the awards represent the votes of 150 of its members, including business aviation operators, brokers, corporations, and peers in the aviation industry from across Asia.


With over 70 consistently branded super-mid and long-range aircraft, VistaJet has flown to 1,600 airports in 187 countries. In the first half of 2018, VistaJet’s passenger count increased by 18% and flight hours rose by 23% compared to the previous year in Asia. As an indication of the rapid growth in the region in the past year, these figures rose to 37% and 33% respectively by the third quarter, according to a press release.

The Most Innovative Company Award recognizes creativity and innovation in the business aviation industry. In 2018 VistaJet launched the most extensive children’s private travel program, Adventures in the Sky. Created for passengers aged one to 16, the program turns cabins into playrooms and party venues. VistaJet has also trained all of its flight attendants at Norland College, a prestigious childcare institute specializing in early education. Through a better knowledge of child development and behaviors, the crew can better understand family dynamics and recognize the specific needs of traveling families.


“It’s truly an honor to receive recognition for VistaJet’s continual effort on delivering exceptional cabin services. With a team of over 1,000 aviation specialists of 50 nationalities, every single flight is performed smoothly and to the highest safety standards, anytime, anywhere around the globe. Innovation is at the core of VistaJet’s values; by thinking ahead of customer requests, we are committed to creating enriching experiences through creative strategies and initiatives,” said Leona Qi, president of Asia and the US for the operator.
