Golf champion Jon Rahm has been unveiled as a VistaJet Programme member and brand ambassador. VistaJet’s new golf programme, exclusive to members, grants access to bespoke courses and event experiences across the globe.

A previous fractional jet owner, Rahm became a VistaJet Program member in 2021 and opted into the carbon offset programme. He says: “Fractional ownership simply doesn’t offer this level of flexibility.” Flying VistaJet eliminates the risk and limitations that come with ownership, ensuring its members can fly with guaranteed availability in as little as 24 hours’ notice.

Rahm has flown on a range of VistaJet aircraft including the Challenger 350 and Global 6000, and has been one of a limited few to experience the record-breaking Global 7500 jet. Having flown the jet to a tournament in Spain he said: “After flying VistaJet’s Global 7500 it is hard to fly anything else; nothing else is comparable, to be honest. I felt like I had a house in the air; I slept a solid eight hours, easily. It was the only time I’ve ever flown over the Atlantic with such a big-time zone change and never had any jet lag.”

Whether flying for a tournament, with friends or family, Rahm has also enjoyed VistaJet’s consistent levels of service. The brand has a cabin hostess on every flight, including on super-midsize jets, trained by institutions such as the British Butler Institute, WSET and Norland College. He adds: “The amount of work the VistaJet crew has done for us is beyond. They consider things that most would overlook. And knowing that every single cabin hostess on board is trained to take care of kids is amazing.”

VistaJet CCO Ian Moore adds: “Golfing great Jon Rahm is the perfect VistaJet brand ambassador as golf, much like private aviation, relies on precision, timing and a commitment to excellence.”

The golf programme will grant its members access to some of the most private courses, tournaments, golf experiences and destinations, as part of its Private World collection, at the Mandarin Oriental in Canouan, St Vincent and the Grenadines and at the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany, Italy.
