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.
The news from VistaJet, XOJET chairman Thomas Flohr follows continued positive reports from Argus and WingX
71% of incoming requests are from customers who had no or little previous private jet flying experience
The news continues to be good for the business aviation sector. Last week WingX and Argus reported U.S. private jet travel was approaching 70% of pre-COVID-19 coronavirus levels.

VistaJet, a subsidiary of Vista Global Holdings, which also owns U.S.-based XO (a combination of XOJET and JetSmarter), says business remains strong as it takes steps to enhance the safety of both customers and flight crews.
VistaJet says figures from January 2020 through today highlight that the total number of flights increased by a further 16% year-over-year.
