VistaJet XRS and 605 orders put focus on meeting long haul demand
VistaJet has ordered four Global Express XRSs and two large-cabin Challenger 605s for delivery in 2011 and 2012.

VistaJet has ordered four Global Express XRSs and two large-cabin Challenger 605s for delivery in 2011 and 2012. Thomas Flohr, founder and chairman, says: "The order reflects a greater emphasis on large, longer range aircraft which will significantly increase VistaJet's long-haul capability."

He says the company is gaining new programme and on-demand clients in markets including the Middle East, West Africa, Russia and the CIS who typically fly sectors of more than six to eight hours.

Flohr says: "Additionally, the order will also facilitate VistaJet's strict policy of maintaining a young fleet age profile, with an average age of less than two years and with no one individual aircraft being more than three years old. Once all aircraft are delivered, the fleet will have in excess of 30 aircraft."

He predicts the new aircraft will play a key role in maintaining increased long haul demand. VistaJet, headquartered in Switzerland, has operations centres in Salzburg, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong.
