Existing XOJet and JetSmarter Members receive access to Vista Global.
Vista Global’s founder and chairman Thomas Flohr said, “In the first month after closing our acquisition of JetSmarter for its innovative technology, we have worked relentlessly to establish a new company, a new brand and new products to serve every customer in the business aviation market.
“XO, powered by JetSmarter technology, is well equipped to address the US$11 billion per year global market of On Demand business aviation, as well as the new market of customers moving up from first and business class. We are ready to go live and introduce our suite of XO solutions to the market.”
