The company saw an increase in flights to and from the region, with a vast expansion of its On Demand flight services, registering an increase of 33% in 2016 compared to the previous year. Around 90% of Russian business aviation flights are operated by large and midsize jets, which sees VistaJet being a favoured option with its fleet of over 70 Challenger and Global aircraft.

With a global operations base in Malta, VistaJet has flown over 250,000 passengers on over 100,000 flights to 187 countries – 96% of the world. Russia continues to be the third most popular market for both its Program and On Demand customers, with Moscow to Nice proving to be the most popular business jet route for the company.

The key drivers of growth in Russian business aviation remain raw material mining, development of business and banking. In recent years, these have been supplemented by the agricultural sector and the IT industry. In keeping with this development, the new breed of charter customer in Russia is young and looking for a personalized service – one that is exclusive, fast and unique in an increasingly commoditized world.

Thanks to its strategic investment in innovative technology, VistaJet leads the business aviation sector with a pioneering end-to-end technology platform that makes the company the most technologically integrated in the industry. The launch VistaJet Direct, the company’s new digital membership, lends itself as the leading solution for Russia’s business aviation customers, whose busy schedules and last-minute decisions are part of their everyday life.

VistaJet Direct is a new digital membership ideal for anyone looking for the unparalleled service and global reach only VistaJet can offer. For a yearly membership of $10,000, customers will be able to request bookings on all available VistaJet aircraft prior to the charter market and through the app’s in-built geo-location services, Members will receive a push notification to their smartphone when a flight is near them. Unlike some of its competitors that offer seat-only booking and no guarantees, VistaJet Direct allows its Members the opportunity to have the full VistaJet experience, including sole use of a jet, a cabin hostess trained by the British Butler Institute, catering from the world’s most renowned chefs, organize their ground transport and a comprehensive in-flight service. What’s more, the app offers real-time fixed pricing, and the entire booking process can be completed in minutes – perfect for Russia’s new, time conscious and tailored focused business aviation customer.
