Founded in 2006 and based in New York, the company was sold by TPG Capital and Aabar PJS, two large private capital investors, to Dubai-based Vista Group Holdings in 2018.  In June 2019, its brokerage was merged with JetSmarter into a new brand, XO Global LLC, and the website URL was changed to FlyXO.com. XO offers a wide spectrum of programs from fixed-rated offerings on its fleet of super-midsize private jets (Citation X and Challenger 300) and off-fleet on light and midsize jets. It also offers dynamically priced memberships, shared flights, and the ability to buy single seats on private jets. Recently its parent Vista Global acquired Apollo Jets, which is now a subsidiary of XO Global.

XO is the combination of XOJET’s brokerage and JetSmarter following the acquisition of both by Vista Global Holdings in 2018 and 2019.
