XO was founded in 2006 as XOJet Aviation based in Northern California.
TPG Capital and Aabar PJS, two large private capital investors, sold the company to Dubai-based Vista Global Holding in 2018.
It is a sister company of Vistajet.
Before the sale of XOJet, it had built an on-fleet and off-fleet model with over $100 million in brokerage sales.
In June 2019, its brokerage was merged with JetSmarter, another Vista Global acquisition.
The new brand was named XO Global LLC, and the website URL was changed to FlyXO.com. The company rebranded it as XO.
In July 2021, it suspended its fixed-rate Elite Access membership.
As of 2023, it offers dynamically priced memberships, shared flights, and the ability to buy single seats on private jets. It has been a leader in jet-sharing flights, pushing the democratization of private aviation.
Vista Global acquired a minority interest in Red Wing Aero, with plans to build its fleet of light jets.
It also acquired Apollo Jets, a larger private jet charter broker, now a subsidiary of XO Global.
With the Apollo acquisition, Vista Global gained a minority interest in Talon Air, a top 20 Part 135 charter operator.
In 2022, Vista Global acquired Jet Edge and Air Hamburg.
XOJet, Red Wing, and Talon Air-operated aircraft, along with VistaJet, Jet Edge, and Air Hamburg aircraft, are used for XO members in what is known as the Vista Members Fleet.
Additionally, it uses third-party charter operators.
As a foreign entity, Vista Global is barred from holding a majority stake in U.S. airlines, including charter carriers.
However, it owns both the XO charter and jet card brokerage and aircraft in the various fleets.
