Jet Linx joins Wheels Up and XO in private jet seat sharing

The fast-growing private jet management company is giving its aircraft owners as well as jet card customers the option to buy and sell extra seats on their flights

The Jet Linx base model with 18 locations provides a unique advantage giving it critical mass in the markets it serves, says its CEO Jamie Walker  

Last year there were over 40,000 empty seats on flights operated by Jet Linx for the owners of the private jets it manages and the members of its jet card program. Now the fast-growing Omaha-based private aviation provider is enabling both aircraft owners and card customers the ability to sell seats within its customer network.

Everything you need to know about XO’s updated jet card programs

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.
