Speaking to Arabian Business, VistaJet and XO boss Thomas Flohr believes he can get more flight hours out of his current and future private jet fleet
Thomas Flohr, the chairman and founder of Dubai-based Vista Global Holding, says there is a lot of room to grow – in his own fleet.
XO and VistaJet parent Vista Global Holding is acquiring on-demand private jet charter broker Apollo Jets and Part 135 operator Talon Air
Talon Air is the 14th largest charter operator in the U.S. It expands Vista Global into aircraft management
In 2018, it bought XOJET. JetSmarter came in 2019. Last year Dubai-based holding company Vista Global Holding snapped up Red Wing Aviation. Now the parent of VistaJet is acquiring on-demand charter broker Apollo Jets. It is also gaining 49% of Apollo’s 70% interest in Part 135 operator and management company Talon Air. The latter is the 14th largest U.S. charter operator based on flight hours, according to Argus TRAQPak.
Vista Global and Ferrari are extending their partnership to provide flights to races
Vista Global, the private aviation group founded by Thomas Flohr, says it will open its global private jet fleet to all the Ferrari drivers participating in International GT races and in the Prancing Horse mono-brand championships.
The new service will “help all Ferrari international drivers enjoy a safe and seamless flying experience with VistaJet and XO as they travel globally to compete in the races.”
XOJET Aviation, which operates XO’s super-midsize private jet fleet, is upgrading interiors for 16 of its Bombardier Challenger 300s to VistaJet standards
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.
