The private jet on-demand charter operator also provides it guaranteed-availability, fixed-rate version of a jet card program
VistaJet, a subsidiary of Vista Global Holdings, which also owns U.S.-based XO (a combination of XOJET and JetSmarter), says business remains strong as it takes steps to enhance the safety of both customers and flight crews.
VistaJet says figures from January 2020 through today highlight that the total number of flights increased by a further 16% year-over-year.
The specialist in mid-and-long-haul private jet flights has
made its website more interactive while improving account data for customers
VistaJet has launched a new website designed to be
interactive. It includes a number of new functions, including the ability to
get an on-demand charter quote on the home page as well as comparison features
to various ownership options. The company is also enhancing online tools for
customers, including being able to changes flights digitally and download
invoices from past flights instantly.
“Our previous website was beautiful and clean, but not conducive to a conversation. It was more of a brochure,” executive vice president, marketing and innovation Matteo Atti tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.

VistaJet History and Overview
VistaJet was founded in 2004 by Swiss entrepreneur Thomas Flohr. It operates a fleet of over 70 owned Bombardier aircraft, all with consistent branding, livery, and amenities for its on-demand charter and prepaid member program customers.
The company is based in Malta with global offices in London, New York and Hong Kong. In 2018, Flohr formed a holding company, Dubai-based Vista Global Holding. VGH has since acquired XOJET, JetSmarter (with the brokerages combined into XO), Red Wing Aero, Apollo Jets and Talon Air.
VistaJet’s U.S. fleet is operated by XOJET Aviation (Review private jet membership company M&A activity with our PRIVATE AVIATION DEAL BOOK.) and recently announced plans to add 50 light jets for its XO brand.
In 2020, VistaJet launched its first dedicated program targeting corporate accounts. It also expanded its Private World collaborations with luxury travel advisors.
