XO traces its routes to 2006 when it was founded as XOJET Aviation based in Northern California. TPG Capital and Aabar PJS, two large private capital investors, sold the company to Dubai-based Vista Group Holding in 2018. It is a sister company of VistaJet. Prior to 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.

XO offers a wide spectrum of programs from fixed-rated offerings on its fleet of super-midsize private jets (Citation X and Challenger 300) and off-fleet on light and midsize jets.

XOJET
XO is the combination of XOJET’s brokerage and JetSmarter following the acquisition of both by Vista Global Holdings in 2018 and 2019.

It also 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.

Recently its parent Vista Global acquired a minority interest Red Wing Aero, with plans to build its fleet of light jets. It also acquired Apollo Jets, a larger private jet charter broker, which is 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. XOJET, Red Wing and Talon Air operated aircraft are used in XO programs. 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 XOJET and Red Wing fleets. Talon Air is a mix of owned and managed private jets.

XO is included in Private Jet Card Comparisons’ database of over 50 jet card providers, enabling you to compare programs in minutes.
