Vista Global’s move to combine XOJET and JetSmarter under a new brand, XO, and new website, FlyXO.com, has brought some significant changes for jet-card customers. Here are the details.
The revised XO jet cards expand light and midsize programs nationwide and offer a new discount structure for longer flights
Thomas Flohr’s Vista Global group has been moving fast. Since the founder of VistaJet set up a Dubai-based holding company last September, he bought XOJET and JetSmarter. Then last month, he merged the two companies into a new brand, XO, and a new website, FlyXO.com.
The result has been an integration of JetSmarter’s Instant Booking private jet charter rates and seat sharing options into XOJET’s existing jet cards, potentially providing customers with a wider variety of options.
Of course, the devil is usually in the details. But first, a quick review of the program basics.

jet card that not all programs offer
You might ask, “How can you say guaranteed availability is a key component of a jet card, yet not all programs offer it.” OK, call it a flourless cake. Unlike products such as the sparkling wine that comes from Champagne, France, there are no laws that regulate what’s in your jet card. As the number of providers and programs has exploded in the past decade, it has meant that new twists on cards that omit features traditionalists believe are mandatory.
