Vista Global, the world’s first private aviation ecosystem, exclusively introduces the Global 7500 under the VistaJet brand to its worldwide fleet of 115 aircraft. The 7500 will be a gamechanger for VistaJet Members, providing the only way to access the largest and longest-range business jet in the world, combating jetlag and opening a new world of long-haul private flying.
When it comes to speed, the 7500 has won the record for the longest mission ever flown in a non-stop flight of 8,225 nm, with a long-range flight between Sydney and Detroit, Michigan. The aircraft also set the speed record between New York and Los Angeles, hitting Mach 0.925 and sustaining that speed for more than two hours, completing the coast-to-coast flight in 3 hours and 54 minutes.
VistaJet’s unparalleled network will give the Global 7500 the space to operate at its peak and open an extended world of non-stop possibility for its Members. With VistaJet, passengers can travel long-haul on the 7500 to 187 countries worldwide, unlocking access to 96% of the world and some of the most hard-to-reach areas in a single flight. For the first time, VistaJet’s passengers will be able to go from New York to Hong Kong or Singapore to San Francisco in one trip, arriving up to 21% faster than the next fastest jet on the market today.
During the flight, passengers will enjoy the very best comfort and space ever provided. The Global 7500 is the only business jet with four living spaces, and the VistaJet configuration offers a permanent private stateroom suite. The living area includes a six-seat table and introduces the first new seat architecture in business aviation for 30 years, with a patented comfort and deep recline. With the largest galley in business aviation, food will be freshly prepared in the air, offering the freedom of cooking Michelin star menus the way they were intended to be. Wings precision engineered for maximum flexibility deliver unprecedented stability for an exceptionally smooth ride.
Not only will passengers arrive faster than ever before and in the very best comfort, they will do so without being burdened by jetlag. The Global 7500 uses Soleil, aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting system. Soleil uses a revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation which will help VistaJet Members combat jet lag and allow it to be an issue of the past.
Flying on the 7500 through VistaJet will be the most cost-efficient way of experiencing the world’s leading jet. Using VistaJet Program instead of buying a $70m+ asset outright, fliers will see no depreciation, no capital risk and access the company’s full fleet of aircraft. In addition, customers will have the ability to select the right aircraft for their journey, with access to the full VistaJet fleet. The result is guaranteed access to the world – anywhere, anytime.
Today’s announcement is yet another gamechanger for our current fliers and the many additional customers we continue attracting from our competitors. The 7500’s speed, range, space and technology will have a significant impact on aviation, and I am so pleased VistaJet is the first and only company to offer it. We have had an incredible response from fliers interested in experiencing the 7500 which is reflected by the fact we are already planning the introduction of five additional jets to arrive throughout 2020.
Since founding VistaJet over 15 years ago, I have been seeking the highest standard to offer our customers a supreme flying experience, whilst being most cost efficient. We have led the change in the industry in providing our clients with the best fleet of aircraft and service, and today, we are doing it again. We are designing the future of the aviation landscape. This exciting announcement comes just a month after Vista Global’s industry changing commitment to implement the highest speed KU-band internet on board its fleet”
Thomas Flohr, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman
