VistaJet, the leading global business aviation company, is the first operator to offer service on the all-new Bombardier* Challenger 350* jet in Europe. Two Challenger 350 jets have been flying in the company’s European fleet since October 1st, already logging over 110 flight hours to date.
VistaJet will add four additional Challenger 350 aircraft to its fleet by the end of 2014 and will be operating 10 Challenger 350 aircraft by the second quarter of 2015. The first six jets will be replacing the current Learjet 60 XR aircraft while subsequent jets will contribute to overall fleet growth. As the new Challenger 350 jets enter the fleet, additional service will be added to Europe, Russia & CIS, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
“Over the past year, there has been much anticipation over the arrival of the Challenger 350 jet in Europe. VistaJet customers don’t have to wait another six-to-eight months — our Challenger 350 jets are in-service now and we are thrilled to be the first to offer this high-performance aircraft,” said Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman, VistaJet.
“Customer feedback is very positive, with high marks on cabin design, technology and comfort. We look forward to adding more Challenger 350 jets to the fleet,” continued Mr. Flohr.
Featuring a jump seat for the Cabin Hostess — VistaJet is the only operator with a Cabin Hostess on every flight — and cabin divider door, VistaJet’s Challenger 350 aircraft configuration mirrors the high standard and privacy of its larger counterparts within the fleet. The Challenger 350 jet is equipped with the industry’s latest and among the most sophisticated — cabin management systems, including features such as in-flight Internet access via Wi-Fi, a modern business suite and trim panel speakers for the ultimate in-flight sound.
The Challenger 350 jet has a true intercontinental range of 5, 926 km; providing non-stop connections between all major cities within Mainland China, exceptional point-to-point access between major African cities and an impressive intercontinental capability such as Moscow-Dubai, Riyadh-Geneva and Hong Kong-Mumbai**.
