VistaJet launches digital platform for one-way and empty leg flights

VistaJet has launched the digital membership platform VistaJet Direct, which offers priority access to the company’s one-way and empty leg flights at preferential rates.

The service, which costs US$10,000 annually, is accessed via a smartphone app, which allows users to select their favorite destinations and uses GPS to identify the closest airports to the user. It then notifies them when an aircraft will be in their area and allows them to book and confirm the aircraft through the app for a fixed price.

The service will complement the company’s existing three-year program and on-demand services, although you do not have to be a member of either of these to use VistaJet Direct. Once a booking has been confirmed, the member is granted exclusive use of the jet with the flight fully guaranteed. The app can also be used to tailor flight details such as catering and additional ground services.

Thomas Flohr, chairman and founder of VistaJet, said, “With VistaJet Direct we have invested heavily in a technology that addresses the real needs and desires of our customers. The whole world is turning into a ‘now world’. People don’t have time to wait an hour for their PAs to book flights, this app allows them to book and confirm in minutes.

“VistaJet Direct is the fastest and most convenient way to fly VistaJet. Customers can now book a flight and access the full array of our services no matter where in the world they are, at a time to suit them.”
