Beginning this month, XO is offering flyers culinary delights from food and beverage technology platform C3 on select shared flights from New York to south Florida, its most popular shared flight route. Flyers can also build their own bespoke catering menu from multiple restaurants all in one order.
Sergey Petrossov, chief growth and digital officer at parent company Vista, says: “Private flyers recognise XO for the efficiency we bring to the end-to-end private flying experience. Through our advanced technology and mobile app, which enhances private jet accessibility, transparency and the value of its offerings, XO is built to provide private flyers with more choice. Our shared flights from New York to Florida continue to grow and resemble how this industry is moving towards more innovative flying solutions.
"As companies that share a commitment to innovation and excellence, we are excited to partner with C3. Like XO, it utilises technology to create an accessible and elevated experience, in its case through world-class culinary talent.”
C3 founder Sam Nazarian adds: “C3 has developed a custom pre-ordering technology, 'GO by Citizens', for XO passengers so we can meet each client's cravings with ease and efficiency.”
There will be dining selections from seven C3 culinary concepts: the health-conscious offerings of Plant Nation; the Tuscan flavours of Dario Cecchini's Cicci di Carne; the Mediterranean flavours of Soom Soom; the Mexican flavours of Hecho Libre; Krispy Rice from the team behind sbe's iconic sushi concept Katsuya; European-inspired breakfast by EllaMia; delicious sweets from Cindy Lou's Cookies, and more to come.
Upon booking, XO provides eligible clients with a personalised link, allowing them to customise their inflight dining experience as they wish through the 'GO by Citizens' technology.
