VistaJet crowned the best private flight brand by two leading awards

VistaJet, the world’s first and only global business aviation company, has been proudly honored by Robb Report Hong Kong as the ‘Best of the Best’ in the aviation category for 2023.

VistaJet also clinched the title of ‘Best AOC Charter Operator’ from the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) for a fifth year running. 


‘Best of the Best’ by Robb Report Hong Kong is an annual print and digital compendium in which the best brands, products, services, places, and experiences are bestowed with the ultimate accolade, celebrating the marriage of remarkable craftsmanship, exceptional design, and impeccable quality.

"It is an honor to receive these two prestigious awards that are highly recognized in both the luxury and private aviation sectors. We couldn’t have done it without the trust of our clients, and the dedication of our global team, who 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."

As at September 2023, Vista’s total flight hours grew over 22% globally across its leading VistaJet and XO brands. The Group’s strong growth included rapid expansion in Asia, which witnessed an impressive 68% growth rate in flight hours year-on-year. The VistaJet Program membership delivered an increase of over 40% globally and 16% in Asia year-on-year. Add-on hours by existing Members grew 46% year-on-year for Vista and 13% in Asia as demand for private travel remains strong.

The demand for ultra-long-range travel to and from Asia has been a significant factor propelling this growth. This has been serviced by the Vista Members’ fleet of more than 360 aircraft covering all categories, from short-range aircraft to its flagship Global 7500, the largest and longest-range business jets in the world, able to fly 17 hours non-stop.


VistaJet recently launched the aviation industry’s first 360 Wellness program, spanning four continents and 20 disciplines. The program provides comprehensive pre-flight, in-flight, post-flight and at-destination wellbeing experiences. The VistaJet Wellness program is meticulously tailored for its Members, and the seamless services help passengers stay at their best throughout their travels. 

In the lead-up to its 20th anniversary in 2024, VistaJet will continue to pioneer better ways to fly and live with its exclusive offerings.
