VistaJet headed to China
Apex Air, a Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) authorized business jet operator, will manage and operate a China-based fleet of aircraft for VistaJet’s Flight Solution Program.
VistaJet plans to offer point-to-point service within China by the third quarter 2015. The first Chinese-registered aircraft will be a Bombardier Challenger 850. Chinese customers will also have access to VistaJet’s fleet of over 50 large-cabin, long-range Bombardier Challenger and Global aircraft when travelling on international flights.
“VistaJet has been operating international flights in and out of China for many years,” VistaJet Founder & Chairman Thomas Flohr says. “Adding domestic flights through our partnership with Apex Air extends our service area to include one of private aviation’s most exciting new markets.”
