The travel industry is cautiously restarting following a near-total shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Over 80 percent of global travelers intend to explore as soon as they are able, according to a report by LUXX Media, and those with VistaJet’s global fleet at hand will be among the first to return to life as normal.
Private jet travel significantly cuts down on the touchpoints associated with any form of commercial flight and is in line for a huge increase in demand as a result. That same research from LUXX Media also shows that 79 percent of UHNWIs would be more inclined to travel by private jet than before.

However, even a private jet cannot mitigate all the pitfalls of traveling mid-pandemic. The jet may be safe, but what about the destination? That is where the VistaJet Safe Havens collection steps in, offering utmost safety from the journey to the final destination.
The collection is comprised of seven exclusive multi-stop adventures tailored around the passion of its members. The journeys have an emphasis on restorative immersions in nature, exclusive-use escapes and health-enhancing adventures. This includes anything from hiking the Andes with a world-breaking mountain athlete to exploring the baronial Pittormie Castle, Scotland’s most illustrious private gated estate and home of The Eden Club.
The journeys are:
