Vertis Aviation, the Switzerland-headquartered boutique jet consultancy is marking ten years of business with the introduction of an exclusive selection of prestigious travel experiences. Today sees the launch of a new partnership with one of Four Seasons flagship destinations: Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, the world’s first exclusive-use hideaway in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
The premier brands formed the agreement to satisfy a growing demand for safe, flexible and private travel to distinguished destinations. A heightened demand for spending time with friends and family, relaxing at leisure, and enjoying natural beauty has been stimulated by the restrictions resulting from the global pandemic, and has resulted in a rise in leisure charter flights. “The combination of a private jet flight reducing travel times, limiting exposure to other travelers and minimizing airport transfers, with a remote, tropical private hideaway, only accessible to a single group of guests, is very powerful in our current climate,” says James Foster, COO for Vertis Aviation. “We anticipate this is going to be a popular product with existing clients who regularly use our private jet solutions for their leisure needs, as well as new clients seeking exceptional experiences. The benefits of flying privately are truly amplified in our current climate and our aim is to deliver customers a variety of options to satisfy their wanderlust securely and safely.”
Vertis Aviation plans to optimise its exclusively marketed Gulfstream G450 to convey passengers to Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah.

With first-class commercial flights to the Maldives much reduced Vertis is using its extensive network to provide access to exceptional private aircraft to convey customers from across the globe directly to Male, the capital of the Maldives. From here passengers transfer to the vibrantly liveried Four Seasons Triggerfish luxury seaplane for a 30-minute flight to the secluded, seven-bedroom island resort. Sleeping up to 22 guests, the island offers the ultimate in social distancing, an on-island security team and a staff of up to twenty-five according to client needs. As a truly private island, available to just one couple, family or group at a time, Voavah combines legendary service, ultimate seclusion and limitless living. A private yacht, an on-site dive center, water sports, a kids’ program and elevated Lead With Care safety protocols, for the most reassuring of stays, also form part of the offering.
The partnership firmly puts customer service, attention to details and discretion at the heart of each journey. It also epitomizes the Vertis boutique approach which extends beyond simply organizing the flight portion of the trip by providing a range of concierge services from each passenger’s point of departure to destination arrival. Vertis and Four Seasons Resorts Maldives management anticipate that the benefits derived from private jet travel and time spent on a secluded island will also bring new customers to the business aviation sector, as well as to the Four Seasons group.
“We continue to focus on the imperative of safe travel and are working hard on providing a variety of charter solutions to meet this need. Our customers are demanding unique and one-of-a-kind experiences away from it all and this type of partnership allows us to satisfy these requests,” adds Foster. “We’re excited to launch this flagship partnership and look forward to delivering more incredible experiences to our customers,” concludes Foster. The new agreement follows hard on the heels of a new partnership between Vertis and the Raffles hotel group which sees Vertis conveying passengers to the Raffles Meradhoo Maldives villa resort.
