Malta-based programme and charter specialist VistaJet reported a very strong performance in the first six months of 2018. Both flight hours and number for flights increased by 27%. As a result, revenues jumped by the same percentage. The firm also reported a 32% increase in the number of members and a 33% hike in renewal hours. A quarter of VistaJet’s global hours flown now originate in the North American market, demonstrating the growing importance of that region. VistaJet operates an all-Bombardier fleet of 72 aircraft, which range in size from the Challenger 350 to the Global 6000, of which 58 are registered in Malta.
