JetSmarter, the once high-flying South Florida unicorn, is being acquired.
The buyer of the Lauderdale-based company that provides an Uber-for-jets service is Dubai-based Vista Global, Bloomberg reported this morning. So far, there is no announcement on the JetSmarter website.
Vista Global, owner of VistaJet and XOJET, will immediately benefit from JetSmarter’s industry-leading technology platform that will ease the booking process for VistaJet customers, according to a Forbes report. In other media reports, Vista Global indicated it planned to keep on JetSmarter’s tech employees based in the company’s downtown Fort Lauderdale headquarters, and may even increase employment.
