LONDON, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, announces its partnership with the Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow team as its Official Supplier of private jet travel.

With the tight schedule of the race calendar and often only days between Grands Prix, VistaJet will support the team to optimize their travel and transfer times throughout the 2019 Formula One season. In an industry where speed and efficiency are fundamental, the Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow team will further utilize time off track to arrive in optimum condition.   

Having raced competitively with Ferrari for many years and as an official driver in the FIA World Endurance Championship, WEC, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman Thomas Flohr knows the demands of racing and the intense focus required to perform under such pressure. With his Ferrari 488 GTE, Thomas achieved second place at the 24h of Le Mans 2018, alongside his fellow drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Francesco Castellacci.

Announcing the partnership, Thomas Flohr said: “I am incredibly proud to support the most iconic and successful racing team in the world. Innovation, technology and a focus on efficiency are values we both share. VistaJet will provide Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow with seamless travel, to ensure their focus is on what is important – the competition on track.”

VistaJet places the utmost importance on service and operational excellence. On its owned fleet of over 70 aircraft, VistaJet has completed over 146,000 flights globally, safely flying over 360,000 passengers to more than 1,900 airports worldwide.

Thomas Flohr adds: “A new season is starting, a new team will be driving, and we will all be there cheering for Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc and all at Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow.”
