Thomas Flohr

VistaJet is led by 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 two aircraft into a leading global aviation company connecting every continent.

Private aviation 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 to consolidate the fragmented industry and offer all clients the full range of business aviation services on a global scale.
