Customers to join the most prestigious worldwide polo tournament

LONDON, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VistaJet, the first and only global private aviation company, will be offering customers the opportunity to enrich their passion for polo as the company partners with British Polo Day for the 2018 worldwide tournament, following a successful inaugurate partnership last year.

The sport is a key interest for many of VistaJet's customers, both as spectators and riders, and is in line with 39% of the world's animal-loving Ultra High Net Worth population having a passion for horses*. VistaJet continuously develops and offers exceptional experiences for its customers inspired by their true passions, including art, sport and travel, across all cultures worldwide. Its global partnership with British Polo Day will offer customers an exclusive opportunity to enjoy one of their most cherished interests by watching some of the sport's top players, including the world's number one player Adolfo Cambiaso, in the most spectacular and iconic settings, such as the enchanting Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

"Our customers expect the most extraordinary experiences at the highest standards," explains Ian Moore, Chief Commercial Officer at VistaJet. "Our customers' passions become our passions and supporting them is a cornerstone of the VistaJet brand. In partnering on such opportunities with British Polo Day, we are able to continue to deliver second-to-none events to our community."

Originating in ancient Persia, polo has been played for over 2,600 years with the modern game beginning in Northeastern India in 1859. From there, polo spread as widely as its enthusiasts across Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. On a trip to England, the publisher James Gordon Bennett Jr. experienced his first polo match, and upon returning to his native New York in 1876, the game soon spread across North America.

British Polo Day was founded around the idea of reviving the great amateur traditions that spread the modern game of polo. Founded in Dubai in 2009, building relationships around a global community through a series of distinct experiences in iconic destinations has defined British Polo Day since inception.

VistaJet will offer customers the opportunity to travel to all British Polo Day's exclusive 2018 fixtures, starting in Abu Dhabi on 24th March and then onto Dubai, New York, Henley-upon-Thames near London and Beijing, before culminating in Jaipur and Jodphur, India in December.

The global nature of the tournament aligns seamlessly with the VistaJet brand and its global reach. With a fleet of over 70 super-mid and long range identically branded aircraft, VistaJet guarantees availability from as little as 24 hours notice to its Program members, no matter where in the world they are based.
