2017 was a record year for Malta-based programme and charter specialist VistaJet, which flew over 50,000 passengers in one year for the first time. Flight hours were up markedly year-on-year, with double digit growth in flight hours in both the US and Asia. It also made significant progress on its core strategic priorities, increasing market share across the globe. Europe remains the firm’s largest market, accounting for 41% of the total hours flown worldwide. The number of new Programme customers in the Middle East grew by 50% year-on-year.
