Available to its jet card program members now, VistaJet
expects to have six Global 7500s flying by the end of 2020
Vista Global’s VistaJet will put the first of six Bombardier Global 7500 ultra-long-range private jets into service starting in January 2020. Members of its Program, the private jet charter operator’s version of a jet card and alternative to fractional ownership, can start reserving flights as of today. The company has said it has orders and options for as many as 30 of the new jets.
In addition to expanding its network this year to Austin, Chicago, Boston, and New York City, the jet card and private jet management company is bolstering its Elevated Lifestyle program
Fast-growing Jet Linx is adding Forbes 5-star resort Sea Island in Georgia to its Elevated Lifestyle partnerships. It is also expanding its relationship with KEY Anywhere, a network of local concierge services worldwide.
In August, Jet Linx added Medjet, a provider of global air medical transport for travelers, and earlier this year it brought onboard Huffman Travel, a Virtuoso travel agency to help support travel from its aircraft owners and jet card members.
Private jet rental brokers can better serve clients by using a mobile platform the Directional Aviation company is launching next week during NBAA
Kenn Ricci’s Directional Aviation does everything from repairing (Constant Aviation) and remanufacturing private jets (Nextant Aerospace) to pilot training (Simcom). Still, outside the industry, private aviation fliers likely most know it for its three consumer brands – Flexjet, Sentient Jet, and PrivateFly – all housed under OneSky Flight, LLC.
Now Tuvoli, which means, “to fly” in Italian, promises to make life easier for private jet charter operators and brokers, with several key benefits flowing directly to consumers. Greg Johnson, Tuvoli’s president and chief information officer for OneSky, says his goal is to take the friction out of on-demand charter.
