A cofounder of the popular subscription site OnlyFans, Tom Stokely, has joined Global Airlines, a UK-based airline startup. Stokely had kept a low profile since selling OnlyFans but recently became an investor and director of the airline. Global Airlines plans to revolutionize commercial travel by offering a luxury experience to first-class travelers. This includes services such as chauffeur transfers and social spaces on its planes. The airline also aims to serve Laurent-Perrier Champagne to passengers in all classes. While the airline was founded in 2021, it is not yet operational. Nevertheless, it already has four Airbus A380 jets and claims to offer “fast relief from the aches and pains associated with commercial air travel.” The airline’s goal is to compete with carriers like British Airways and Virgin Atlantic by operating flights from London to New York.

Tom Stokely, along with his brother Tim, cofounded OnlyFans in 2016. The platform gained popularity for its adult content and was later sold to entrepreneur Leo Radvinsky. Stokely served as the former chief operating officer at OnlyFans’ parent company, Fenix International. Since 2022, he has been involved as an investor in various ventures, including being a director of the online math platform Watobe. Stokely is also involved in real estate investments. In addition to his role at Global Airlines, he is part of an investment vehicle called Terleys Investments, which was set up by him, his brother, and father. Stokely met Global Airlines founder James Asquith last year, and he also became a board advisor for Asquith’s home booking platform, Holiday Swap.

Global Airlines aims to bring a new level of luxury to commercial air travel and compete with established carriers. With Stokely’s involvement as a director, the airline could benefit from his experience and expertise in building successful ventures. The plans for chauffeur transfers, social spaces, and quality in-flight services like serving Laurent-Perrier Champagne show the airline’s commitment to providing top-notch experiences. If Global Airlines is able to deliver on its promises, it could disrupt the industry and attract customers who prioritize luxury and comfort when traveling.
