NEW YORK, March 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vista Global, the private aviation group founded by Thomas Flohr, announces it will expand on VistaJet’s offer of complimentary empty leg flights to those with critical travel requirements during this time of uncertainty.

Through VistaJet and now XO, the global digital marketplace for private aviation, Vista Global will provide Governments and medical organizations access to over 115 aircraft during the COVID-19 pandemic. Combining efforts across VistaJet and XO — and utilizing their global network, infrastructure and technology — the group will help Governments repatriate citizens who are stranded abroad and assist in transporting healthcare professionals and medical supplies to the countries that need them the most by providing access to complimentary empty leg flights.

Furthermore, to help officials keep their response plans as prompt as possible, Vista Global will also assist with the complex logistics of the necessary permits and paperwork.

Vista Global’s Founder and Chairman, Thomas Flohr, said: “In the past 48 hours since VistaJet’s announcement, we have received a very positive response from Governments and medical organizations so have therefore decided to expand this offer to our group fleet of 115 aircraft throughout the world. We understand that people need help, especially in times of instability, and now in expanding the availability also to XO’s fleet, we are able to use our entire global network, infrastructure, expertise and technologies to help even more communities in need.”

Governments and medical organizations requiring assistance should contact the group through VistaJet’s dedicated web page to allow the company to channel all requests ensuring prioritization, address the most critical cases and manage the relevant safety screening.
