Posted on Thu, Mar 21,2013

Bombardier Challenger 300 Private JetXOJET was founded in 2006, and their headquarters are located in Brisbane, California. The base aviation service model XOJET uses is charter; however, in addition to one-off charter booking, they offer four distinct programs. These programs are:

  • XOJET Preferred Access Program, which allows customer to gain preference over customers and control pricing based on their flight needs,

  • XOJET Coast2Coast Program, which allows customers to access customized coast-to-coast charters,

  • XOJET Elite Access Program, which provides guaranteed access to the XOJET fleet with pay-as-you-fly pricing, and

  • XOJET Membership Program, which allows the customer to pay only for charters taken.

Each program has its own unique terms and conditions. XOJET Preferred Access Program has a $200,000 upfront refundable deposit that is drawn down as you fly. The XOJET Coast2Coast Program is sold in 25-hour increments with a prepayment upfront for those hours. The XOJET Elite Access Program has a $100,000 refundable deposit, and flight hours are billed as they are incurred. The XOJET Membership Program has a nonrefundable one-time membership fee and an annual fee (annual fee is refundable in some cases). These fees are determined based on anticipated annual usage. Other terms and conditions apply, and the details can be found on their website at XOJET.com.

Hawker 850XP Private Jet

The current wholly owned or wholly leased fleet operated by XOJET consists of 16 Bombardier Challenger 300 aircraft and 29 Cessna Citation X aircraft. With Aircell GoGo BizAv technology in every Cessna Citation X and Bombardier Challenger 300, XOJET’s fleet was the first fleet (2010) to be fully equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi Internet connectivity. While a fleet of 45 aircraft is impressive by itself, XOJET has a strategic alliance with Travel Management Company, LTD (TMC) that broadens XOJET customers’ aircraft selection by providing access to 30 Hawker 800/850XP aircraft and 23 Hawker 400XP aircraft operated by TMC. The TMC Hawker 800/850XP fleet also provides GoGo BizAv Wi-Fi technology.

With one of the youngest fleets, XOJET also focuses on safety. XOJet pilots have an average of 7,800 flight hours of experience, and they go through an initial 300-hour customized training program at CAE/SimuFlight and a 150-hour training program in subsequent years. Not only are the pilots trained above FAA standards, XOJET has developed a comprehensive safety and quality management system called XOPS which encompasses flight crews, flight operations, and maintenance.

XOJET Concierge Access offers their customers exclusive access through a dedicated concierge for travel on their fleet to a variety of special events, leading hotels and resort properties, and unique destination experiences. Just a few of XOJET’s travel partners are Virgin Galactic, Art Platform LA, Jazz Aspen Snowmass Festival and The Armory Show NYC.
