XO has big plans under new owner Vista Global Holdings

XOJET XO

After buying XOJET and then JetSmarter, last year Vista Global Holdings merged the two companies to create XO. Newly appointed chief commercial officer Ron Silverman talks about what’s next…

Recently, Vista Global Holdings (VCH) moved its president of client experiences, Ron Silverman, to its XO unit as the chief commercial officer. A veteran of both Executive Jet Management and Wheels Up, Silverman joined VistaJet in 2014 to lead its launch into the North American market.

Our 3.5-hour billing cap on super-midsize aircraft is a phenomenal value and great opportunity for anyone traveling cross country. On a Citation X, it’s $31,625, including taxi time, with guaranteed availability.

Now following VCH’s acquisition of XOJET and JetSmarter, and rebranding the combined duo as XO, chairman Thomas Flohr is promising an expansion of the brand to Europe, plus a range of new programs.

Vista Global’s XO is now offering empty legs to non-members

After the June merger of JetSmarter and XOJET, the new FlyXO.com has been tweaking the jet sharing part of its offering

Vista Global is continuing to put its stamp on its XO brand since merging JetSmarter and XOJET at the beginning of the summer. First, it added JetSmarter’s jet sharing functionality to the former XOJET dynamic jet card pricing memberships.

The move meant that XO Select and Signature memberships could all of a sudden share seats on flights they had booked with their deposits. Elite members who get fixed rates can’t share seats on those flights, but otherwise, get all the perks a JetSmarter member received.

XO also tweaked Select Access and non-member options. In essence, there are two versions of Select Access. But the big news is non-members can now book seats on at least some empty legs.
