VistaJet crowned best private flight brand by two leading awards
It's Robb Report Hong Kong 'Best of the Best' and AsBAA 'Best AOC Charter Operator' for VistaJet as the operator approaches its twentieth anniversary.
VistaJet has been named 'Best of the Best' by Robb Report Hong Kong and ‘Best AOC Charter Operator’ by AsBAA.

VistaJet has been honoured by Robb Report Hong Kong as the 'Best of the Best' in the aviation category for 2023. VistaJet has also clinched the title of 'Best AOC Charter Operator' from AsBAA for a fifth year running.

"It is an honour to receive these two prestigious awards that are highly recognised in both the luxury and private aviation sectors," says CCO Ian Moore. "We couldn't have done it without the trust of our clients and the dedication of our global team, which delivers the highest standards on every flight. We are truly proud of what we have accomplished during our soon-to-be 20 years in the industry. This is just the beginning."

"We are delighted to honour VistaJet as an award winner in the Aviation category of Best of the Best 2023, Robb Report Hong Kong's annual anthology of the finest luxury brands, products, and experiences," adds CEO Tak Man. "VistaJet is a leader in the aviation field, and the company's continued excellence and pioneering initiatives are a testament to its success."

"On behalf of AsBAA, I am delighted to congratulate VistaJet on winning the Best AOC Charter Operator award at the AsBAA Icons of Aviation 2023 awards gala," says chairwoman Jenny Lau. "This award is a testament to VistaJet's commitment to providing its customers with the highest quality charter service. VistaJet has consistently set the bar high for the industry, and we are proud to recognise its achievements as a leading AOC charter operator in Asia. We look forward to an even bigger and better IOA in 2024, and we encourage all our members to continue to strive for excellence. Our utmost congratulations again to VistaJet on their well-deserved award."

As at September 2023, Vista's total flight hours grew over 22 per cent globally across its VistaJet and XO brands. The group's strong growth included rapid expansion in Asia, which witnessed an impressive 68 per cent growth rate in flight hours year-on-year. The VistaJet Program membership delivered an increase of over 40 per cent globally and 16 per cent in Asia year-on-year. Add-on hours by existing members grew 46 per cent for Vista and 13 per cent in Asia as demand for private travel remains strong. Demand for ultra long-range travel to and from Asia has been a significant factor propelling this growth.
