VistaJet has been named Best AOC Charter Operator by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) and Best of the Best by Robb Report Hong Kong.

Members of the association vote for the AsBAA Icons of Aviation Awards to recognize best business practices, operations standards, and service excellence in the industry.

It was the first time the awards have been held since 2019 due to the pandemic, and VistaJet was also the winner back then.

Robb Report’s selection is by its editorial team.

“It is an honor to receive these two prestigious awards that are highly recognized in both the luxury and private aviation sectors. We couldn’t have done it without the trust of our clients and the dedication of our global team, who delivers the highest standards on every flight. We are truly proud of what we have accomplished during our soon-to-be 20 years in the industry. This is just the beginning,” said VistaJet Chief Commercial Officer Ian Moore.

Robb Report Hong Kong CEO Tak Man added, “We are delighted to honor VistaJet as an award winner in the Aviation category of Best of the Best 2023, Robb Report Hong Kong’s annual anthology of the finest luxury brands, products, and experiences. VistaJet is a leader in the aviation field, and the company’s continued excellence and pioneering initiatives are a testament to its success.”

AsBAA Chair Jenny Lau noted, “This award is a testament to VistaJet’s commitment to providing its customers with the highest quality charter service. VistaJet has consistently set the bar high for the industry, and we are proud to recognize their achievements as a leading AOC charter operator in Asia.”
