What is Vista Global announcing?
Vista Global, the world's first private aviation ecosystem, today announces an investment for up to six Global 7500 aircraft to enter its VistaJet fleet from January 2020, becoming the first company to commercially offer access to the largest and longest-range business jet available in the market.
What makes the Global 7500 important?
The Global 7500 will provide Vista Global's customers with an unrivalled business aviation machine. It has set the record for the longest mission ever flown in a non-stop flight of 8,225 nm, setting the long-range speed record between Sydney and Detroit, Michigan.
The aircraft also set the speed record between New York and Los Angeles, hitting Mach 0.925 and sustaining that speed for more than two hours, completing the coast-to-coast flight in 3 hours and 54 minutes.
The capability of the aircraft will mean that passengers can fly from the likes of Los Angeles to Hong Kong in one trip, arriving 21% faster than the next fastest jet. The Global 7500 will ensure that its passengers' day can continue seamlessly.
What does it mean for fliers?
While traveling, passengers will enjoy the very best comfort and space ever provided.
The Global 7500 is the only business jet with four living spaces, including a permanent private stateroom suite at the back of the aircraft.
The living area includes a six-seat table and introduces the first new seat architecture in business aviation for 30 years, with a patented comfort and deep recline.
With the largest galley in business aviation, food will be freshly prepared in the air, offering the freedom of cooking Michelin-inspired menus the way they were intended to be. Wings precision engineered for maximum flexibility deliver unprecedented stability for an exceptionally smooth flight.
How does this fit Vista Global's mission?
Today's announcement highlights Vista Global's ambition to always offer the latest and most innovative technology and aircraft to market. Within just 12 months, the company has been successfully driving radical change across the private aviation industry. Since its launch, Vista Global has already made two major acquisitions, XOJET and JetSmarter, launching XO, the world's first global private aviation marketplace, and announced a partnership to launch the fastest in-flight connectivity in the world.
When will the Global 7500 be available?
VistaJet Members will have the opportunity to request the Global 7500 immediately for flight services commencing in January 2020. Throughout the year, the company will be building its portfolio of 7500s and will operate a fleet of up to six by the end of 2020. Vista Global also has the option to take on additional aircraft in 2021 and the following years at a similar pace, to link with customer demand.
