VistaJet pitches in with virus support measures

VistaJet is helping to ensure that those with critical travel requirements during this time of uncertainty are able to keep moving.

Understanding the global community’s needs as the world works to respond to the evolving situation on COVID-19, VistaJet continues to identify new ways to be of help through its global network and infrastructure. The company is working directly with governments and consulates around the world, helping them to repatriate citizens by providing complimentary empty leg flights. To further ensure that officials are able to keep their response plans as prompt as possible, the company is assisting with the complex logistics of the necessary permits and paperwork.

As cargo flights drastically fall owing to the cancellation of major global commercial routes, and inspired by the incredible gestures of humanity seen around the world, VistaJet is also in talks with medical organisations, health experts and regulators to identify other solutions to help, including the transportation of key medical supplies. Additionally, empty leg flights are being offered complimentarily for critical flights to transport medical experts to necessary locations as they help to fight the global pandemic.

Thomas Flohr, VistaJet’s founder and chairman, says: “Everyone at VistaJet continues to assess how we can better serve our customers and the greater global community during these difficult times. Listening to expert advice, whether that be security, safety or medical, we are here to ensure that they are fully supported with their flying needs. This is an unusual time and one in which we must all work together where possible to do whatever we can to help. We know we don’t normally offer repatriation flights or the transportation of medical equipment, but ultimately we are a logistics company and we are here to help the global community as much as we can. We are in this fight together.”

The company has created a dedicated web page to channel all requests from governments and medical organisations to ensure prioritisation, address the most critical cases and manage the relevant safety screening.
