The company represented by its President, Philippe Scalabrini, was at the Nnamdi Azikiwe and Murtala Muhammad Airport. He was present at these locations for a roadshow with one of the aircraft in its fleet, a Bombardier Challenger 605 with registration number 9H-VFM.

He was joined by Alexandra Price, Senior Manager, Brand PR and Communications, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Amy Yang, Vice President, EMEA.

Scalabrini said, “VistaJet provides great value to clients in West Africa and is the perfect flying solution for West African corporates and businesses as a hassle-free and timesaving tool to connect world decision-makers domestically and across continents, boosting economies and driving global investments.

“Now with three dedicated aircraft in the region, VistaJet aims to accelerate on its trajectory as a key partner for the region’s economic development.”

He stated that the Program membership was for those who require frequent or last-minute travel options. This will ensure customers can access premium jets on their schedule. Also, it will allow members to book flights with as little as 24 hours’ notice.

The model is said to ease the burden of aircraft maintenance on clients. It also reduces the rigorous regulatory requirements associated with complete ownership.

Scalabrini said, “We have the capabilities to satisfy our clients. Once we have a client that signs a program membership with us, we have to guarantee that whenever they need to fly from Abuja to Accra, we provide an airplane. So, we either use an airplane that is already here or bring an airplane from Europe.

“Another very strong benefit of our fleet is that our clients have access to our fleet of aircraft worldwide. So, when our clients sign up to be a member of Vistajet, they have access to the entire fleet or 300 aircraft worldwide.” 


According to the Vistajet boss, Nigeria is a very big aviation market, and the firm is providing an alternative to aircraft acquisition.

“We have been in Africa for the past 14 years and we are happy to continue the services we have been providing in the past years, having flown to over 96 countries and over 2,400 airports across the world,” he explained.

He highlighted that three Challenger 605 aircraft had been made available in the African region. He also emphasized that each of those 12-seater jets had an eight-hour flying range and could operate point-to-point within Africa.
