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.”
