Luxury private jet charter operator VistaJet said it has launched VistaJet World, “a comprehensive portfolio of one-of-a-kind, multi-stop travel adventures tailored around its members’ passions.”
According to a press release, “To celebrate the company’s 15th anniversary, the program highlights 15 exclusive journeys to experience the most remote and thrilling adventures around the world.”
The company said VistaJet World evolved from its Private Office, formed in 2016 as a dedicated team providing members “with bespoke services and access to the world’s most incredible experiences.”
To develop the itineraries for VistaJet World, the company said it worked with a network of world-leading travel experts, including Blue Marble Private, Based on a True Story, Indagare, Nota Bene Global and Pelorus.
VistaJet cited projected 41% from 2017 to 2021 of Ultra High Net Worth (UNHW) households creating “demand for service, personalized attention and exclusivity of experience will continue to increase.” It said 20% of private jet travelers take at least one experiential trip every year.
It said common reasons its program members fly for leisure, include philanthropy, adventure, art and music, nature and animals, and dining discoveries.
Private jet charter and jet card companies partnering to sell luxury travel experiences are not new but have been taking off.
Earlier this year, JetSuite launched JetSuite Experiences by Embark Beyond, a group of luxury advisors who specialize in creating unique experiences. It recently promoted a behind the scenes trip to New York’s Fashion Week.
Skylark, another travel agency was recently named as a partner by Flexjet, and is creating a hotel program that allows Flexjet customers to check into hotels at any time of the day.
Also, Jet Linx, a private jet management company that also sells jet cards and recently expanded into Austin, Boston, Chicago, and New York has added Huffman Travel as a partner while Air Partner has been offering its jet card members fee-waived access to advisors from Quintessentially Travel.
In a reverse twist, Prive Jets grew out of Miami’s Forest Travel which was booking so many private jet charter flights for customers it opened its own private jet charter brokerage.
