XOJET’S Super Bowl Guide to Houston

January 23, 2017  |  Events, Gary Walther

Here at XOJET we have to hand it to Houston. From Sam to Whitney to Tom (“Houston, we have a problem”), the city has cemented its place in American culture despite sharing the stage with other great performers: Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin, and New Orleans.

This year it steals the stage as the host of Super Bowl 51, actually the 50th anniversary of the original Super Bowl. The city knows its Super Bowl stuff, having hosted the game in 1974 and 2004.

Whichever team wins, you win by chartering XOJET—which flies you in and out with ease, style, and comfort. Here is your playbook for the days in-between.

Seven Under-the-Radar Film Festivals To Catch in 2017

December 29, 2016  |  Art, Whitney Friedlander

The film festival market is ripe with glamorous travel destinations offering a behind-the-scenes look at the movie industry. In January the spotlight shifts to Park City, Utah, where countless XOJET flights are descending for their annual pilgrimage to the Sundance Film Festival.

It’s the first major date on the annual movie calendar—and certainly one of its most anticipated—but as savvy cinephiles know, it’s far from the only destination worth a layover during an action-packed year in cinema.

Below are some of our other favorite film festivals of the upcoming year, flying more under-the-radar than Sundance but offering the same blend of Oscar contenders, up-and-coming directors, and indie-films-turned-mainstream-hits.

The Art of Dressing for Art Basel: 3 Experts Give Their Take

November 20, 2016  |  Art, Events, Hayley Phelan, Private Jet Charter

Every year at the beginning of December, a new swarm of fashionable jetsetters descends on the city of Miami. We’re not just talking of sun-starved beachgoers fleeing winter for South Beach, but instead the thousands of art world insiders, collectors, and artists who flock to Miami for Art Basel, one of the most important art fairs of the year.

Art Basel is always quite the feast for the eyes, and the art isn’t half-bad either. However, just as entertaining—and inspiring—as the masterpieces on the wall, are those walking about the fair and sipping Champagne at the after-parties. So now the challenge, if you’re flying XOJET in the direction of Miami Beach, is what to wear?

While you’ll certainly want to blend in with those well-dressed hordes, you’ll also want to stay relatively comfortable. We spoke with three Basel-bound style experts, including artist Jenna Pietrobon, stylist Ian Bradley, and gallerist Leila Greiche, for tips on how to pull off the ultimate Basel look.

XOJET’s Guide to the 2016 World Series

October 24, 2016  |  Events, Gary Walther, Ron Kroichick

Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio - World Series

No matter who wins this year’s World Series, it’s going to be one rollicking party.

Baseball’s annual Fall Classic drips with a distinctive brand of history in 2016. The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians share a common bond, through decades of ineptitude – all forgiven now, because they both stand one step from the mountaintop.

But those long years of losing offer context to this year’s Series, starting October 25th in Cleveland. These are two of the sport’s oldest franchises, dating to 1876 for the Cubs (when they were known as the Chicago White Stockings) and 1901 for the Indians (then the Cleveland Blues). All this history, so little joy – that explains why Chicago and Cleveland are bursting at their seams in excitement.
