VistaJet is one of the leading players in global private aviation, flying more customers to more global destinations than anyone else, with a level of service that its competitors cannot match.

Commenting on today’s announcement, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman, Thomas Flohr stated, “With the investment announced today, the equity valuation in excess of $2.5 billion and our fully scalable technology driven business model, VistaJet is ideally placed to take advantage of the opportunities to shape the market as it further develops in the years to come.”

As a result of 13 years of investment and development, VistaJet believes that its operations and capabilities are now more sophisticated and efficient than anything else available in the market. With an industry leading operations hub in Malta and main sales offices in London, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, VistaJet has built a fleet of over 70 wholly-owned super midsized and ultra-long range aircraft, all with identical livery and design. Its proprietary end-to-end internally developed technology platform makes VistaJet one of the most technologically integrated companies in business aviation. It also constantly reviews and improves its product offer. This year, the company introduced VistaJet Direct, a new digital membership that gives customers priority access to available one-way and empty leg flights via the company’s app and website. VistaJet Direct is the first app membership in the industry able to offer a fully integrated service to its customers.

The positive effects of this work are visible in VistaJet’s trading performance. In the first half of 2017, VistaJet’s EBITDA rose by 32% year-on-year.  The company saw a 51% growth in the total number of Subscription Program Hours sold year-on-year in the second quarter of 2017, and Program Membership revenue reached a record high of 63% of total revenue, up from 55% in the previous quarter. It also recorded a market-leading customer retention rate of 91% in the first half of 2017.

It has flown over 250,000 passengers to over 1,600 airports in 187 countries, or 96% of the world, making it the only truly global player in the market. With these strong foundations and the investment announced today, it is ideally placed for continued significant growth.VistaJet aircraft low[1]

Flohr added, “Thanks to the hard work we have done over the past decade, we believe that VistaJet delivers the best service levels in the sector and in the most efficient manner. The integrated technology platform we have built fueled by data, algorithms and digital channels is, we believe, unique in the industry. Today’s announcement is further confirmation of VistaJet’s leading status in the market, and represents a real vote of confidence in our strategy and vision. I am excited to partner with the Rhône team and to have Steven Langman, Co-Founder of Rhône, join VistaJet’s board of directors. Rhône fully endorses our philosophy and approach, and will be a valued partner in the next stage of the VistaJet journey. Together, we will continue to focus on expanding our global market share. With the investment announced today, we are ideally placed to take advantage of market consolidation, and to build on our position in the sector.”

Steven Langman of Rhône Capital said: “We seek to invest in the leaders in any sector, and with VistaJet we have invested in the best. We have closely followed Thomas and VistaJet for some time, and we are convinced that the Company’s business model and global strategy give it a superior advantage in the marketplace. We share management’s vision to significantly grow the business, both organically and by acquisition, and we are prepared to make further investments, if needed, to achieve these goals. We are pleased to have invested in this dynamic industry pioneer.”

Jakarta Post: Vietnam and Indonesia are always close partners

Vietnam and Indonesia are always close partners, according to an article in the Jakarta Post on Tuesday to mark the official visit to Indonesia by Vietnam’s Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong this week.

The article said Vietnam and Indonesia share economic similarities and are competing for foreign direct investment and market access. Both aim to achieve a 10 billion USD bilateral trade by 2018. Vietnam and Indonesia shared numerous viewpoints and maintained close coordination at international forums such as the United Nations and the Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN).

On Monday, an Eurasia Review online article said the historic visit, which is also the first-ever visit to Indonesia by a General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, is intended to open a new chapter in the more than six decades of close friendship between the two countries. The article said Vietnam is scheduled to host the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Da Nang in November and President Joko Widodo will attend. The visits of Mr. Trong and Mr. Widodo will set the course of strategic ties between Vietnam and Indonesia for the future, the Eurasia Review said.
