Swiss multi-millionaire Thomas Flohr's private jet firm VistaJet registered a 57 per cent increase in uptake of its membership scheme as it revealed information about its performance in 2017.
Flohr's fleet of luxury private jets are used by politicians and business passengers and can be hired by the hour. In the six months to 30 June this year, 6,000 new subscription hours were sold.
Flohr said: "Our impressive performance is the proof that customers have embraced our unique model. We look forward to continuing to shake up the business aviation industry to offer our customers the true alternative to full and fractional aircraft ownership without compromise"
The private company previously said its profits grew 39 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2017 and a 22 per cent growth in flight revenues.
