Vista Global, which owns the VistaJet, Vista Lease and XOJET brands, has agreed to acquire JetSmarter, creating a global on-demand digital marketplace for private flights.
JetSmarter’s innovative technology fulfils Vista Global’s digitisation strategy, providing Program Members and On Demand customers with an end-to-end service and seamless booking experience. The acquisition enhances Vista Global’s exisiting suite of services and technologies.
JetSmarter’s digital capabilities are coming to the entire Vista Global group after an earlier, successful partnership with XOJET. Its disruptive platform will be integrated into the back-end technology of VistaJet, Vista Lease and XOJET, significantly improving the ease and speed of the passenger booking process. Some 150,000 passengers travel with the Vista Global companies every year.
Vista Global Founder and Chairman Thomas Flohr, said: “Today’s acquisition is an important milestone, accelerating and executing our vision of digitising the entire private aviation offering. Customers want speed, reliability and value, which in today’s world is only possible with technology. Vista Global’s reach and infrastructure will take JetSmarter to the global stage, fully realising its potential.”
