VistaJet Direct is the name of a new private jet membership program the operator has quietly started rolling out. While not calling it a jet card, like its Programs that target frequent global Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) travelers, royalty and Chairmen/CEOs, it is a prepaid product.
VistaJet says it is targeting frequent Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) customers and corporations with its new WeChat sales platform to make bookings on its global fleet. Customers can now make bookings from the smartphones.
Jet Aviation and VistaJet announced that Jet Aviation Flight Services will operate and manage a U.S.-based fleet of Bombardier Challenger 350 aircraft for VistaJet’s Program customers.
