The XO fleet increases by 30% with 15 light jet aircraft. Vista Global plans to grow to 50+ light jets domestically, further expanding their private aviation footprint.
XO, the On Demand private aviation provider, today announces that it is adding 15 Citation light jets to complement its current super midsize aircraft offering. This strategic move takes its dedicated fleet up to 58 light and super midsize jets, cementing XO’s leadership position.
XO’s membership base has nearly doubled since April, and its new members, as well as existing customers, are increasingly looking for solutions for their short distance travels. Many flyers, living or working outside the major aviation hubs, are facing firsthand the restrictions resulting from deep reductions in commercial aviation services, and a light jet is the perfect solution to travel short distances between underserved routes.
XO already grants clients worldwide access to its Vista Global group-owned fleet of 130 aircraft along with access to the XO Alliance Fleet of over 2,100 safety-vetted aircraft globally. The acquisition of the 15 light jets allows a new segment of customers to benefit from XO’s know-how and standards — on service, value, and flexibility of access. Each aircraft will be upgraded to match the most advanced cabin standards of the XO dedicated fleet and all Members will benefit from the 30% fleet expansion and the ongoing commitment to offering the best market rates, which can be booked instantly through XO’s mobile app or calling its 24/7 team of dedicated Aviation Advisors.
By adding a new aircraft category, XO delivers on the commitment of its parent company – Vista Global – to offer the perfect solution for every private aviation customer, across aircraft classes and in every region in the world. Further consolidating the industry and providing simple solutions for all its customers, XO has plans to expand to over 50 light jet aircraft over the coming years.
XO fleet solutions are available and accessible through XO’s new app, which extends the Company’s tech-forward leadership. XO’s new app is the first and only platform in private aviation to offer global instant booking, plus universal search for both charters and individual seats, as well as an invaluable “Price Explorer” tool.
Commenting on the expansion, Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman of Vista Global, said, “This is an important chapter in XO’s growth and an immediate benefit for its clients, providing XO Members access to a new agile service, at the high standards that Vista Global is renowned for, on the ground and in the air.”
