Charter operator XOJet Aviation plans to move two-thirds of its headquarters operations from Sacramento McClellan Airport (MCC) in California to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) in Florida, the company announced yesterday. At FXE, XOJet will set up temporary space for 250 employees on the north side of the airport while it awaits construction of a 40,000-sq-ft building at a permanent site at the airport, the exact location of which is to be determined.

“Moving our headquarters will allow teams to work more efficiently with our key partners and will increase key departments’ responsiveness and improve efficiencies for clients as well as provide a location that will allow us to attract world-class talent,” XOJet Aviation president and chief operating officer Kevin Thomas told AIN. The regional sales office and the operations of its corporate air shuttle team will remain at MCC. 

“There will be a significant number of the existing employees relocating to South Florida in the coming weeks,” added chief human resources officer Michelle Bauman. “We’ll be hiring an additional 150 positions, which are currently open and we’ve begun accepting applications.”

XOJet Aviation is the operating air carrier for XOJet, an on-demand charter company acquired in the fourth quarter of 2018 by Vista Global Holding. XOJet Aviation has 116 owned aircraft, while XOJet has access to another 1,500 aircraft under management.
