How XOJET Delivers

September 28, 2017  |  Private Jet Charter, XOJET

Our goal at XOET goes far beyond delivering passengers from Point A to Point B.

It’s about delivering on the fundamental promise of private aviation: a service that is, in the words of our Chairman & CEO Brad Stewart, “creative and innovative […] excellent all the time […] and a trusted choice for sophisticated consumers.”

This is how we do just that:

1. Placing Our Passengers First

From top to bottom, XOJET’s operations specialists, maintenance controllers, and flight captains all share the same job description: Pursue the client’s best interest above all else. Regardless of the scenario or challenge, everything we do funnels back to our all-encompassing, client-centric business model. All XOJET clients are assigned their own Private Aviation Advisor, whose one job is to stress over all the little things so you don’t have to. Customized flight programs, luxurious in-cabin service, and a dedicated team of schedulers to ensure flights operate smoothly and efficiently: It’s all tailored specifically for you, without locking you into options you neither want nor need.

To further assist in this mission, XOJET collaborates with like-minded partners to provide clients with the most seamless aviation experience possible. Recently we have joined forces with esteemed travel brands like Mandarin Oriental, The Private Suite at LAX, and Vail Mountain & Beaver Creek Resort, ensuring clients receive the same level of hospitality before and after their experience aboard XOJET. We also partnered with artificial intelligence provider Noodle Analytics—also part of the TPG portfolio of companies—to leverage predictive analytics to better understand our revenue structure and confidently provide our clients with the industry’s lowest rates.

It’s simple: If we can deliver a private flight solution that makes sense for you—and not us—only then are we satisfied.

A Guide to Choosing the Right Jet for Your Mission

One of the primary advantages of flying XOJET (and flying smart) is the complete control our clients have over aircraft selection. Unlike fractional owners who are locked into one class of aircraft, you as an XOJET client can choose between dozens of modern jets through out Preferred Partner Network—including turboprop, light, mid-size, super mid-size, and heavy jets—specifically tailored to the distance, speed, cabin, and storage space required for your trip.

To help you decide which aircraft is best suited for your missions in 2017, here is our high-level guide to select options available within XOJET’s owned and extended fleet. Welcome aboard.

Turboprops

Suitable Routes:
Los Angeles > Las Vegas
New York > Boston
San Juan > St Barths
San Francisco > Los Angeles

King Air 350

Exterior View of a King Air 350 at an FBO

Range: 2,077 miles
High Cruise Speed: 360 mph
Takeoff Distance: 3,300 feet
Landing Distance: 2,692 feet
Rate of Climb: 2,731 ft/min
Max Operating Altitude: 35,000 feet
Cabin Volume: 416 cubic feet
Cargo Volume: 71 cubic feet

Cabin Highlights: With available seating up to 11, the King Air 350 sets the class standard for comfortable cabins—featuring luxurious seating, noise-dampening ride technology, and luminous natural lighting thanks to large, rounded windows. It’s the cabin you’d expect from a jet aircraft.

What You Need to Know: Though still a turboprop aircraft, the larger King Air 350 is more comparable to light jets than the PC-12. Positioned as such, the 350 offers style, comfort, and small-jet versatility for an operational cost vastly lower than its competitors. A proven classic since its first model in 1974, we recommend it as a more fuel-efficient, economical option for both business commuters and leisure travelers flying short-to-mid-range distances—and those who want a faster, more luxurious aircraft than the PC-12.
To help you decide which aircraft is best suited for your missions in 2017, here is our high-level guide to select options available within XOJET’s fleet. Welcome aboard.

Thirty-Six Hours in Telluride

There are many reasons to fly private, but one of our favorites is the easy access it offers to destinations that are often considered difficult to reach.

Like Telluride, Colorado.

Set within a glacier-carved box canyon 360 miles from Denver, Telluride gives us everything we want in an alpine destination: dramatic scenery, tremendous skiing with no lift lines, a walkable downtown, and a sprinkling of celebrities, all wrapped up within the rocky peaks of the San Juan Mountains.

Here’s how we spend three perfect days in this winter wonderland.

Eight Things You May Not Know About Flying Private

September 8, 2016  |  Private Aviation, Travel Booking and Tips

From flexible flight routes to overall travel convenience, the premise of private aviation is as simple as it is obvious. Now let’s look at some of its lesser-known private flying essentials—all great reminders before your next flight with XOJET.

1. Ten times more airports than commercial.

San Francisco Private Flying Airport Map

One reason private jets are seldom delayed is because they have over 5,000 private airports to choose from in the U.S., compared to just 500 for commercial flights. (Plus, private airports and airfields don’t have to account for as many air traffic delays.)

Golfing with a Challenger 300

If there’s a common thread to the destinations on this list – ten great golf courses only accessible (or more easily accessible) by private jet – it’s probably this: An inviting, middle-of-nowhere flavor, safely removed from civilization as we know it.

I’ve covered nearly 40 major championships over the years, and countless other big events, and idle chatter among tour pros and writers often veers toward tantalizing golf escapes. The design of the course matters – it takes a deft touch to seamlessly carve a challenging layout into the land – and so does the environment, ideally a mix of invigorating scenery and welcome tranquility.

July 19, 2016  |  Gary Walther, XOJET Partnerships

Today, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort, the luxury collection of Vail Resorts, as the official private aviation partner.

Our best-in-class partnership pertains specifically to Signature Club Guests of Vail and Beaver Creek Resort and XOJET’s Preferred Access™ and Elite Access™ clients. For the former, the partnership will make the getting there an experience in itself—”the jet as a living room,” as Gregg Slow, Executive Vice President of XOJET Sales and Client Services, puts it—and for the latter, it will up the luxury quotient of being there.

Every day, XOJET clients explore the most beautiful destinations around the world for business and leisure. And from what we hear, it feels good to enjoy all that the world has to offer.

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains at nearly 8,000 feet high, Aspen, Colorado offers year round cultural and natural beauty particularly during ski season. It’s no surprise a favorite spot for XOJET fliers to spend quality time with friends and family celebrating the holidays. However, what makes this destination a true jet-set kind of town isn’t the walk down Main Street or its slopes. In fact, it’s the memorable flying experience into the city, which many believe is half the…
