Technology issues are impacting flight operations and bookings at Vista Global’s XOJET and VistaJet units
Technology issues are impacting Vista Global, the fourth largest provider of for-hire private aircraft in the U.S. Its operators include XOJET Aviation, VistaJet, and Red Wing Aviation. The company recently announced plans to acquire Talon Air, the 14th largest Part 135 operator, and related broker Apollo Jets.

Vista Global Part 135 operator XOJET Aviation is enrolling 15 Challenger 300 aircraft on a specialized 10-year term engine maintenance program with Jet Support Services, Inc. XOJET provides a fleet of 45 Bombardier Challenger 300 and Citation X super-midsize programs for XO’s jet card programs and on-demand charter solutions.

If you think you are seeing more private jets in the silver bullet VistaJet livery here in the U.S., you are right. That’s because XOJET Aviation is repainting 16 XOJET branded Bombardier Challenger 300s to match its sister company. The aircraft are part of the fleet XO uses for its Elite Access fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet card program.
Earlier this year XOJET put itself into play. Last week VistaJet launched a holding company with plans to expand. Voila, a deal!
Earlier this morning Thomas Flohr’s VistaJet announced it had reached an agreement to acquire XOJET via Vista Global, a Dubai based holding company formed earlier this month. The deal covers XOJET’s business aviation fleet and commercial operations, and the release said XOJET’s regulated air carrier will continue to be independently operated in a joint venture under U.S. control and leadership, in accordance with U.S. Department of Transportation criteria. As first reported by Private Jet Card Comparisons, earlier this year XOJET hired Perella Weinberg Partners to explore its ongoing business options.
