TRAVEL DURING CORONAVIRUS

To our valued clients,
As we progress through this unchartered challenge of supplying service to our clients while maintaining a level of uncompromising safety, we have implemented the following guidelines at Vitesse and have asked our global partners to follow the same procedures and risk reduction measures.

AIR CHARTER SAFETY

Asset 1@72x 100 4

❖ All aircraft surfaces are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected after each flight with an EPA-approved product that effectively kills 99.9% of the COVID-19 virus.

❖ All aircraft interiors are treated with an antimicrobial barrier that bonds to surfaces providing lasting protection from various bacteria, germs, and viruses like the COVID-19.

❖ The crew is checked for signs of the virus regularly and, if there is any sign as to their health, they must follow the CDC guidelines and self-quarantine until cleared by a certified medical professional.

❖ As part of pre-flight passenger screening, we are providing face coverings for all crew members and passengers.
