service VistaJet will bring to their longer haul flights both with Russia
and internationally.”

Mats Leander, co-chairman of
the advisory board of VistaJet said: “This agreement is a win win for both
companies. VistaJet will soon be flying point to point with Russia for the benefit of its customers whilst
Dexter’s customers now have the ideal solution to their long haul requirement
both in and out of Russia.”

Ian Moore, chief commercial
officer commented: “No one else in the private business aviation sector is
taking delivery of brand new aircraft at the rate we are, nor is anyone more
committed to maintaining the youngest fleet in the skies. It is a bold step and
another example of our commitment to providing a unique customer experience.”

Thomas Flohr concluded: “Russia
has long been a priority market for us, one where we are seeing significant
levels of demand for our luxury aviation services. With the agreement we have
announced today, we now have the opportunity to build on our already leading
presence in Russia and
significantly extend our service coverage across the country and the wider
region of Siberia/Asia and ultimately China.”
