““I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht.” —musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase Source: Rolling Stone ”
VistaJet Moves into U.S. with Jet Aviation and Wheels Up
Europe-based VistaJet is entering the U.S. private-lift market with two unexpected alliances. Jet Aviation’s Flight Services division will operate 12 Bombardier Globals on its behalf while startup membership-based program Wheels Up will offer VistaJet’s Flight Solutions Program (FSP) to U.S. customers.
Wheels Up, which is preparing to launch service with a fleet of Beechcraft King Air 350i twin turboprops later this year, will be VistaJet’s exclusive general sales agent in the U.S. for FSP clients. Its own members will be able to book flights on VistaJet’s U.S.-based fleet.
