Founder and Chairman
Thomas Flohr founded VistaJet in 2004, and remains its Chairman and the majority shareholder. Under his leadership VistaJet has become the first and only global private aviation company. With a fleet of finely customized business jets, VistaJet has flown corporations, governments and private clients to 187 countries worldwide.
Thomas studied Business and Political Science at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, and started his career with computing and finance company Comdisco in 1985. He was appointed European President in 1995, and then Worldwide President of Comdisco (Finance) in 1997. He later acquired Comdisco Switzerland and Germany – now Comprendium Investment SA – before dedicating himself entirely to develop his vision for VistaJet.
Regarded as a pioneer in the aviation industry, Thomas Flohr was the first entrepreneur to offer a flight-hour subscription model across an entire fleet of jets flying customers anywhere, and at any time. In 13 years, Thomas Flohr transformed VistaJet from a start-up European company operating three aircraft into a leading aviation company with over 70 mid and ultra-long range jets flying between every continent.
In January 2016, Thomas Flohr was awarded the prestigious “Aviation Entrepreneur of the Year” award in recognition of his successes and contribution to private aviation.
