Charter provider VistaJet has been awarded the EBAA Diamond Safety of Flight Award, acknowledging the company’s 100,000 logged flight hours without an accident. It’s the first time a company has been awarded this particular EBAA recognition.

According to a company statement, however, VistaJet “has actually achieved over 200,000 hours of safe operations, having flown over 210,000 passengers on more than 80,000 flights to destinations worldwide.”

“We encourage a constant dialogue between our pilots, cabin crews, operations staff, and senior leadership team, and work hard to create a culture in which people feel comfortable raising any concerns,” comments VistaJet COO Nick van der Meer. “We also place a heavy emphasis on safety through our recruitment process, and provide flight data monitoring on all of our flights, even though this is not required by law.”
