Take a tour of the private jet that a billionaire CEO flies around the world

Thomas Flohr, founder and CEO of private aviation charter company VistaJet, spends more than 800 hours a year in the air over about 150 days, traveling mostly for business as he runs VistaJet’s operations throughout the world. VistaJet has more than 70 private jets of various sizes and ranges, but one of them – a Bombardier Global 6000 business jet – is used exclusively by Flohr. On our way to a meeting with Flohr, Business Insider recently had a chance to take a tour of the jet while it was parked on the tarmac at Teterboro Airport – one of the main airports for private jets in the New York City area. Scroll down for a walkthrough of the luxurious jet, from the dining and conference tables, to the private bedroom. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.
