VistaJet, the leading global business aviation company, and Priester Aviation, an industry leading provider in business aircraft management and operations, announced today that Priester Aviation will operate a U.S.-based fleet of Bombardier Challenger 350 jets for VistaJet’s Flight Solutions Program. Service began in June 2015 and there are currently three VistaJet Challenger 350** jets under operation with Priester Aviation. VistaJet acts as agent for U.S. Flight Solutions Program customers to arrange flights that will be operated by Priester Aviation within the U.S.
“We are very pleased with the rate of growth in the United States and are delighted to add service on Challenger 350** aircraft to complement the larger Global 5000** jets,” said Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman, VistaJet. “Our alliance with Priester Aviation solidifies our commitment to the North American market. Priester Aviation has an impeccable reputation for aircraft service, charter operations and management in the United States. Like VistaJet, they have solid roots as a family operation and understand the importance of impeccable customer service.”
“We’re proud to be selected as VistaJet’s operator of choice for their U.S.-based Challenger 350 aircraft,” said Andy Priester, president and CEO for Priester Aviation. “Our reputation for excellent service combined with our robust and advanced operating systems make us a natural partner for VistaJet.”
Following the successful roll out of the Challenger 350 aircraft in the rest of the world, VistaJet clients flying between destinations within the U.S. are now be able to select from the highly customized Challenger 350 jet, which can fly for up to 7 hours, or the ultra long range Global 5000 aircraft, which can fly up to 11 hours.
Featuring a jump seat for the Cabin Hostess (VistaJet is the only service provider with a Cabin Hostess on every flight) and cabin divider door, VistaJet’s Challenger 350** aircraft configuration mirrors the high standard and privacy of its larger Challenger and Global aircraft counterparts. The Challenger 350 jet is equipped with the industry’s latest and among the most sophisticated cabin management systems, including in-flight Wi-Fi, a modern business suite and trim panel speakers for the ultimate in-flight sound.
