VistaJet has launched The Surprise Reunion, its latest creation in the Adventures in the Sky programme for families. Designed in collaboration with event planners Sharky & George, the adventures bring friends and families together from every corner of the globe.
Prior to each journey packages, including trip itineraries and challenge instructions, are delivered at each guest's door. Perhaps an ancient map parchment, a set of engraved coins or a cryptic message, each will be different from the next and in some cases delivered by unexpected characters. From there, VistaJet will ensure seamless travel by private jet from anywhere in the world to the final destination.
As friends and family may be flying simultaneously on separate VistaJet aircraft, it says all in flight activities and challenges will share a common theme to create an atmosphere of togetherness leading up to the reunion.
Matteo Atti, EVP of marketing and innovation at VistaJet says: “This past year has shown us that spending time with family and friends is what really matters. We assessed how to better serve our members and imagined a reunion with loved ones of all ages, commencing at 45,000ft.
“After more than a year of missed milestones and holiday gatherings, our hope is that this will give families and friends something exciting to look forward to, encouraging them to spend time together, exploring new places, creating new traditions and celebrating every moment big and small.”
VistaJet's Surprise Reunion can be completely tailored to meet passenger preferences and create the most imaginative experience. It says inspiration itineraries include The Ultimate Quest: imagine the world's most elaborate treasure hunt that starts at home and culminates in all the family's favourite people congregating on a private island surrounded by turquoise sea. Hidden maps and cryptic clues will be found along the way, interacting with characters who are not what they initially seem. Expect boat chases, drone delivery of intel, femmes fatales, buried chests, high tech spy equipment and a nail biting narrative.
Or even the Adventure Race Across the Globe: perfect for family and friends with a competitive streak. Teams are allocated one month before the VistaJet flights and are evenly split between ages, ability and geography. As soon as race packs are delivered, players will have time to collaborate on tactics and game plans. Upon arrival at the top of a mountain, in a beautiful chalet surrounded by pristine powder, the group receives a set of photos, video and physical challenges to kick off a week-long adventure, paramotoring over the peaks, tracking chamois, marmot or elk with a local biologist and dog sledding to dinner; and the Immersive Historical Experience: travel back in time to ancient Greece, where everyone will convene aboard a spectacular superyacht for two weeks in the Peloponnese to embark on a modern take on the 12 Labours of Hercules. Clues and challenges will be woven into the most unusual activities imaginable, from cave diving to capture Hydra from the bed of the sea to recovering golden apples from the top of Mount Olympus in a climb to Greece's highest peak.
