VistaJet offers a jet to yacht service to beat Covid-19


VistaJet’s jet-to-yacht transfer is providing a solution to its clients who are otherwise unable to reach their superyacht safely due to Covid-19. The transfer requires guests fly with VistaJet to Malta and have their vessel waiting for them there. Passengers will have their temperature taken before boarding and crew will provide masks and gloves for use during the flight.

The VistaJet jet-to-yacht service is designed to be efficient, convenient and Covid-19 safe. Clients arriving in Malta via private jet will go straight into a private customs area and VIP lounge. From there, a sanitised car will be waiting to transport them directly from the aircraft to the marina, a journey time of approximately 15 minutes.

Those who do not have a yacht waiting for them in Malta are able to charter one through VistaJet’s approved local agents.

Ian Moore, chief commercial officer for VistaJet, said: “With a number of restrictions still in place during this time of uncertainty, those who own a yacht or are planning to charter one may be concerned about how they will reach it.

“There can be challenges with access and most importantly in traveling to them safely. Business jets are the safest mode of travel under current circumstances. Our VistaJet-to-Yacht service is a unique offer to keep these customers moving, providing a seamless experience from air to sea.”

The World Health Organization singled out Malta as a role model for other countries in the fight against COVID-19, for implementing a number of effective measures to flatten the curve and control the situation.
