Jet Aviation and VistaJet, two leading global business aviation companies, have expanded their partnership in the USA. Jet Aviation, which has operated and managed a VistaJet-owned fleet of Global 5000s in the USA since 2013, will now oversee the Bombardier Challenger 350s that were recently added to the line-up. This means that VistaJet’s entire owned fleet in the USA is now managed by Jet Aviation.

Don Haloburdo, vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation, said, “We are honored that VistaJet has selected Jet Aviation to operate and manage its US-based fleet. Our partnership with VistaJet has been extremely successful, and we are delighted to take our relationship to the next level. VistaJet’s impeccable reputation makes it a great partner. We look forward to continue providing the highest level of service that VistaJet and Jet Aviation customers are accustomed to.”

Ron Silverman, president of VistaJet US Inc, added, “Today we are pleased to announce the expansion of our partnership with Jet Aviation. We started our collaboration in 2013, favoring the company’s highly regarded culture of safety, to operate our US-registered Global 5000 aircraft. Jet Aviation has exceeded our expectations, and as we aim to always provide our clients with the best possible flight solution, we have now decided to add the entire US-registered fleet to their certificate.

“The Challenger 350, arguably the most popular super midsize aircraft in business aviation, is a favorite among our customers. So from today, whether you are arranging flights through VistaJet from Los Angeles to London on a Global 5000, or Houston to Miami on a Challenger 350, you are in the expert hands of Jet Aviation, a recognized industry leader for 50 years.”
