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.

Last year, VistaJet made news when it launched a Dubai-based holding company Vista Global and then weeks later announced the acquisition of XOJET, a large U.S.-based fleet operator and charter broker. At the same time, VistaJet has been solidifying its position at the top end of the global private jet card and charter market adding to its ferry free flying zones (now 95% of the globe) and top-end services for children, catering and oenophiles.

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.
