The World No.1 male golfer becomes a VistaJet Member and brand ambassador

Golf, much like private aviation, relies on precision, timing, and commitment to excellence.

As the sport surges in popularity across the U.S. and beyond, we’re delighted to announce that golfing World No.1 Jon Rahm has come on board as a VistaJet Member and brand ambassador.

Our global availability and consistent service help Jon and his family feel at home on tour – all while providing the perfect conditions for elite performance.

Our partnership with Jon comes at a time when demand has increased for safer solutions in all areas of life. 2020 saw the largest net increase in active U.S. golfers in almost two decades, in part thanks to the physical and social benefits it provides in spacious outdoor environments.

The sport’s rise goes hand in hand with a growing demand for private aviation. VistaJet members like Jon can take comfort from our robust safety measures and technology, including regular sanitizing, testing, and air purification.

Partners in excellence: Jon Rahm

Jon Rahm closed 2021 in the number one spot after becoming the first-ever Spanish golfer to win the U.S. Open. Nicknamed ‘Rahmbo’ for his winning combination of power and finesse, Jon also collected the PGA of America Player of the Year and Vardon Trophy awards following a stellar campaign.

Jon splits his time between his primary residence in the U.S. and Spain, his home country — requiring a nonstop and consistent experience. Paired with the additional global demands of a professional golfer, he became a VistaJet Program Member in 2021 to support his quest for even greater success professionally and personally. VistaJet’s service zone and guaranteed availability coupled with unmatched service excellence is what a truly global traveler needs.

“Fractional ownership simply doesn’t offer this level of flexibility”

Jon had previously experienced private aviation as a fractional jet owner. But this solution has limitations for global travelers with increasing demands on their time – and Jon needed a more flexible solution for him and his family.

Our floating fleet model and global infrastructure enable Jon to step on board a private aircraft anywhere in the world with as little as 24 hours’ notice. The diversity of our fleet also allows him to choose different aircraft types to suit different trips.

“I flew the Global 7500 to Spain for a tournament, it was such a good flight! I went from the main cabin to the couch to the back bedroom, which had a library and office space, it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I had my dinner and went to bed and slept a solid eight hours, easily. It was the only time I’ve ever flown over the Atlantic with such a big time zone change and never had any jet lag.”

The best aircraft in the game

As his World No.1 ranking shows, Jon knows what it takes to be the best. His Program membership provides guaranteed access to the world’s only fleet of Global 7500s, the private aviation industry flagship. It has the longest range, highest speed, and largest cabin of all private jets in operation.

“After flying the Global 7500 it’s hard to fly anything else, nothing else is comparable to be honest, I felt like I had a house in the air.”

A family home in the sky

The external and internal consistency of our fleet — including highly trained crew — provides Jon with a reassuring sense of familiarity, no matter his location. Combined with exceptional safety standards and in-flight service, we deliver a home-away-from-home experience that benefits him and his family.

“I remember the first flight we had with our son, the crew were not only mindful of our food preferences but kept the same standards and beyond for our child. Also knowing that every single Cabin Hostess onboard is trained to take care of kids, it’s amazing! In case we are asleep, we trust the Cabin Hostess knows how to help out.”
