VistaJet has launched The Surprise Reunion, an anything-goes private jet programme which tailors bespoke trips packed with mystery clues and challenges.

Continuing its partnership with creative events company, Sharky & George, the business aviation company will first send mysterious trip packages to travellers before the flight — all based on the event planner's chosen destination.

Inside, are trip itineraries and challenge instructions, with tools ranging from ancient maps, engraved coins, cryptic messages, and where trip packages may even be delivered by "unexpected characters", according to VistaJet's media release.

Adventures may include boat chases, drone delivery of intel, high-tech spy equipment, and when everyone has reunited — group activities could include week-long physical adventures over peaks, cave diving, time with a local biologist, or dog sledding to dinner.

As travellers might be flying simultaneously from different parts of the world on separate aircrafts, all The Surprise Reunion activities will share a common theme — island fun, action-packed adventure, or immersive history — in the lead up to arrival at destination.

Just like commercial planes, members who book the private jet for corporate group travel are given flexible cancellation terms in view of the pandemic's changing nature. Payment is based on a fixed on-demand hourly rate.

Apart from Covid-19 safety and hygiene protocols, a dedicated cabin hostess is also assigned to one aircraft per 17 days to minimise contamination.

In pre-pandemic times, VistaJet flew to 187 countries (96%) in more than 1,900 airports worldwide. Popular hubs in APAC include Singapore and Hong Kong.

Currently, apart from adhering to global border restrictions and protocols, there is no reduction in VistaJet's plane capacity — which can carry a range of eight and up to a cap of 14 passengers per flight.
