New Culinary Heights

At XO and our parent company, Vista Global, we recognize the pain of those in the creative industries - music, the culinary arts, film, literature and design - whose businesses and lives have been disrupted by the pandemic. These are individuals who operate at “The Heights of Talent.” To support them, we are planning to introduce the best of their best to our refined flying community.  Starting with food and wine.

A quick background on XO

We, along with Vista Global, are an innovator in the private jet business. We have pioneered many firsts, including instant booking via our app; the ability to crowd-fund charters; and the opportunity to buy one or more seats on someone else’s private flight.
With access to 115 private jets in our group-owned fleet and 2,100 aircraft in our safety-vetted XO Preferred Operator Network, our mission is to make private aviation more accessible than ever before.  We attract a sophisticated and refined community, and this program is designed to get talented creative people like you in front of as many of them as possible.

A Contest for the world’s best recipes ...  at 30,000 feet

Dining above the clouds is inspiring but it also puts unusual demands on culinary vision. (In other words, souffle's won’t rise to the occasion).
We’re inviting creative chefs everywhere to contribute a special recipe - straight from their imaginations and expertise - designed to overcome the limitations of airline preparation - to create a memorable meal in the sky. Truly new "Culinary Heights". If you’d like to enter our competition, please send us a recipe for four, starting with an appetizer, entree, and dessert - plus a recommended wine pairing. Email us here to enter.
Our XO culinary experts will choose three winners.

Three winners receives the height of exposure

Here’s how you’ll benefit from being chosen:
• We will announce your selection and promote it through our PR team, celebrating you, your restaurant, your business, your cookbooks, or anything else that will help you in these trying times.
•.You will have the opportunity to prepare and serve your winning recipe on one or more of XO’s signature flights. 
• We will also share your recipe, along with information about you and your business, to all of the XO community through our social and email channels. We hope that this exposure will make important introductions for you and your business.
• We will feature you on our website and in our app.

If you have any questions and/or to submit a recipe, email us here.

We are looking forward to attracting as many recipe ideas as possible, as we draw from the extraordinary range of talent that needs the awareness and exposure that our refined community can offer.

There is a big problem we're all facing, but the best way to overcome it is with one recipe at a time. As always, our Aviation Advisors are available 24/7 to help you take advantage of the opportunities we are making available - during these unprecedented times - to secure ongoing access to our private charters and individual seats on private jets.
