VistaJet is led by its Founder and Chairman, Thomas Flohr. Thomas is a pioneer in the aviation industry who had the passion, skill and commitment to transform an idea into a fully fledged, global business. Since its inception in 2004, Thomas transformed VistaJet from a European start-up company operating two aircraft into a leading global aviation company with over 70 mid and long-range jets connecting every continent.
Managing a private aviation business requires the financial acumen to oversee large asset financing requirements, an ability to precisely execute on worldwide operations, whilst requiring a sensibility for every service and product detail. Thomas started his career with computing and finance company Comdisco which he later acquired — now Comprendium Investment SA — before dedicating himself to develop his vision for VistaJet.
Thomas is a key investor in multiple technology, leasing and aviation companies. In 2018 he formed Vista Global Holding to consolidate the fragmented industry. A global group headquartered at the DIFC in Dubai, Vista Global integrates a unique portfolio of companies offering asset-free services to cover all key aspects of business aviation: guaranteed and On Demand global flight coverage; aircraft leasing and finance; and cutting-edge aviation technology. The Group’s mission is to lead the change to provide clients with the most advanced flying services at the very best value, anytime, anywhere around the world. Vista Global’s knowledge and understanding of all facets of the industry deliver the best end-to-end offering and technology to any business aviation client, through its VistaJet and XO branded services and duly licensed carriers.
