For my first of hopefully many contributions to BKM magazine, I wanted to share with my readers one of Greater Montreal’s most upscale best-kept secrets – Vinci – a luxury aviation company providing the metropolis’ movers and shakers a complete jet set experience to travel anywhere in North America and beyond.
Launched in 2012 by Marco Prud’Homme, whose family has been in the aviation business for 50 years, Vinci is a one-stop-shop offering air transport solutions by private jet charter flight – for 1 to 8 passengers – as well as additional accommodation reservation, ground transport and catering services once at destination.
So what does the Vinci experience entail? As Marco was happy to tell me when I first met him at a LUXE Magazine launch event in the royal suite of Le Mount Stephen hotel; long before you reach the aircraft you will discover a simple, problem-free process to reserve your flight. You can also forget the long waiting lines at public airports. The aircraft that their team reserves for you will depart at the time you’ve chosen. A crew of professional pilots is there to welcome you and take your luggage. As soon as you arrive, they will escort you on board a private executive jet already being prepared for takeoff.
Their aerodynamic craft – the Learjet 45 – takes off quickly and smoothly, reaching its cruising altitude in only a few minutes. You’ll bask in the immensity of the blue sky in an ultra-comfortable cabin.
Whether you want a full meal, a tasting or a simple snack, their team will provide personalized in-flight service with several gourmet options. If you and your guests want to celebrate a special event, their onboard selection of wines and spirits will meet your expectations. Thanks to their à la carte service, they will find your guilty pleasure and offer you a memorable flight.
Once you reach your destination, your rental car or limousine will pick you up directly at the door of the plane.
Reliable, safe, punctual, comfortable and discreet. You can trust Vinci‘s team of charter experts to organize your tailor-made business or pleasure trips so that you can enjoy the ultimate jet set experience.
