Vista Global Launches Aircraft Trading Service

Vista Global Holding, the parent company of VistaJet, has launched Vista Global Trading – a new business focused on aircraft sales.

Vista Global Trading will trade business aircraft globally across corporates, private owners and the brokerage market. Aircraft owners will be able to move quickly into a VistaJet membership program, by divesting their current aircraft to the newly launched Vista Global Trading.

“We are transforming the trading marketplace worldwide to enable valuable transactions to occur when speed and market appropriateness is critical, whilst giving access to asset-free flying solutions globally through Vista’s subscription memberships,” said Thomas Flohr, Chairman, Vista Global.

Vista Global Trading will be led by Bill Papariella, Chief Business Officer, Vista Global Holdings – who joined in 2022 following its acquisition of Jet Edge, the Los Angeles-based aircraft broker.

“I am thrilled to announce this new service. It leverages the huge power of being part of the Vista universe and capitalizes on a key opportunity across the increasingly diversified requirements of the business aviation world,” said Papariella.

“Vista Global Trading will benefit aircraft owners, large corporations, Vista Members, global fleet operators and the brokerage community by providing them with further opportunity to trade their assets. It will help maximize the efficiency of their assets during their lifecycle, and enjoy seamless and quick access to Vista’s asset free subscription Program, securing guaranteed availability on a global fleet of over 360 aircraft, by trading in their asset to us.”

Jet Edge will continue to operate as a separate brokerage firm led by Kevin White, but will have a close partnership with Vista Global Trading.
