29th March 2018, Hong Kong: VistaJet, the first and only global aviation company, continues to lead the industry with three major initiatives in April. These include:
- The global tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller comes to Beijing and Shanghai

The Art of Flying: The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller
VistaJet is delighted to sponsor the worldwide exhibitions and tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller, set to be the most significant auction entirely dedicated to raising funds for philanthropic causes.
Following the unveiling of early highlights in Hong Kong, London and Paris, the global public tour will move to Beijing (6-7 April), Los Angeles (6-12 April) and Shanghai (10-11 April), ahead of the final exhibition in New York from 28 April. With every stop of the tour, new elements of this multi-category collection will be revealed. The sale will be conducted at Christie’s New York in Rockefeller Center during the week of 7-11 May.
To further enrich the global exhibition tour, VistaJet has created three exclusive and fully-customizable The Art of Flying experiences for VistaJet and Christie’s clients.
The Rockefeller Experience will allow up to 10 guests travelling with VistaJet on one of its iconic silver and red jets a rare opportunity for a behind-the-scenes private discovery tour of Kykuit*, the historical National Trust landmark of the Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills or a private tour of the Rockefeller Archive Center in Westchester County before enjoying a Rockefeller-inspired multi-course feast at chef Dan Barber’s much-acclaimed Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant in upstate New York. Guests will also receive a personal tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibition in New York and will be invited to attend a reception to view the live auction at Christie’s New York with leading art experts.
The World of Art Experience will offer customers the opportunity to travel to The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibitions on-board VistaJet for a private tour of the emblematic collection at each location. By booking a multi-leg journey, VistaJet will transport clients and their art at no additional cost on flights anytime, anywhere.
The Direct Experience will offer any guest flying with VistaJet to any of the exhibitions an invitation to receive a complimentary membership to VistaJet Direct, worth $10,000. The Direct membership gives clients access to available VistaJet private flights at special rates from any mobile device, through the world’s first end-to-end business jet app.
VistaJet: Leading the Industry, Identifying the Future
With a fleet of over 70 identically-branded business aircraft, VistaJet has flown over 300,000 passengers on over 120,000 flights to over 180 countries and offers guaranteed availability with as little as 24 hours’ notice for its Program members, no matter where in the world they are based.
With an expanding customer base in Asia, VistaJet recorded a 27% increase in new Program members in the region in 2017. Catering to China’s high-net-worth individuals, VistaJet is focused on individualized service, attention to detail and personalized experiences.
Reinforcing its position as an industry leader, VistaJet will release The Jet Traveler Report, a comprehensive research paper, in Shanghai on 16 April, providing a global perspective of who flies privately and how. The detailed report will identify the market split for ultra high net worth (UHNW) population, the growing markets, distinguish the competing business models and pinpoint the factors that influence how business leaders and UHNWs choose to fly.
The Jet Traveler Report will also identify future trends in private aviation, discuss the varied business aviation landscape and highlight the services truly valued by fliers.
Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE)
Media will have a chance to view VistaJet’s Global 6000 aircraft at the ABACE from 17-19 April. Considered the most advanced and long-range premium aircraft, the Global 6000 boasts the widest cabin in its category and can welcome up to 14 passengers on board.
Leona Qi, VistaJet’s President of Asia comments: “ABACE presents a rare opportunity for visitors to explore a VistaJet aircraft up close and discover for themselves the attention to detail and luxury experience. I, along with our Asia team, will be available to welcome guests and show case what makes VistaJet the number one operator in the region.”
While media will be granted exclusive access to the aircraft during an all-day preview on 16 April, private appointments can be made via VistaJet’s WeChat account. The WeChat booking platform also allows customers to book a flight directly.
