After placing a record order worth USD 7.8 billion to Bombardier, luxury aviation firm Vistajet today said it will focus on the Indian market and hopes to have a base of around 200 business-flyer clients in the country in next five years.
"We have plans of opening up an office in India and we are hoping to have a client base of around 100-200 people in India who fly out frequently on business trips to international destinations," Vistajet advisory board chairman Rob Hersov told reporters here.
Vistajet has placed an order for 56 new Bombardier 'Global' aircraft with options for 86 more planes for USD 7.8 billion. The deliveries of the order are expected to commence in 2014.
Hersov said his company has operated in India in the recent past and after an augmented fleet, sees a lot of potential in the Indian market in the coming years.
"We are number one in Russia where we register around 2,000 take offs and landings in a year. We hope to surpass that figure in India," he said.
