While airlines are curtailing their premium cabin service during the COVID-19 pandemic, VistaJet is continuing its pursuit of elevating the private jet travel experiences

VistaJet is partnering with the fabled Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong to launch a Once in a Blue Moon experience. The link between the two leading luxury brands is timed to coincide with the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Available from September 15 to October 15, 2020, the special offer includes a bespoke Hong Kong private jet experience. The gourmet menu will be served on board, curated by Executive Chinese Chef Wing-Keung Wong of Michelin-starred restaurant Man Wah at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. Guests who book during this period will also save up to US$5,000 on a future VistaJet flight, valid until the end of the year.

The exclusive in-flight menu highlights Chef Wong’s favorite signature dishes, including his Wagyu Beef Puffs with Black Pepper Sauce; Double-boiled Matsutake Mushroom with Fish Maw and Chicken Broth; and Braised Fresh Crab Claw with Glass Vermicelli.

If you don’t need to fly during the period, the special menu is also available for lunch at The Krug Room, an exclusive private venue at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong.

In addition, the experience comes complete with a Staycation by M.O. suite package. It includes a stay in a luxury suite with a wide range of privileges, and an exclusive opportunity to have a private cooking class with Chef Wong. As a third-generation chef, guests will learn recipes that date back to the Qing Dynasty.

“The experience is inspired by these extraordinary times that we are living in, whether it’s creating special memories with your family or a one-of-a-kind private flying experience, VistaJet is here every step of the way to ensure a seamless experience in the air and on the ground where safety, health and personalized moments are always our top priority,” commented Ian Moore, VistaJet’s chief commercial officer.

Pierre Barthes, general manager of the hotel, said, “Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is excited to be collaborating with VistaJet. We share the same service ethos by offering guests the finest experiences that define hospitality and travel, and we look forward to delivering moments of delight during this unprecedented period.”

Chef Wong’s exclusive menu is available on flights departing Hong Kong between September 15 and October 15, 2020.

VistaJet has long been a standout in the private aviation industry, including live inflight programming for kids and specialized services for your pets.
