Cessna says Citation is popular with fractionals
Cessna’s Citation is a top pick for business jet fractional ownership companies.
Cessna says there are more Citations in the installed fleet of fractional operations than any other business jet, attributing this to attractive operating costs.
NetJets has the largest private jet fleet in the world. The fractional ownership company announced the largest private aviation order in history in August of 2012 for $9.6 billion, which included 25 new Cessna Citation Latitude aircraft with options for 125 more. Deliveries are expected to start in 2016.
JetSuite, a private jet charter company based in Irvine, operates six JetSuite Edition CJ3 aircraft and intends to acquire two more refurbished Citation CJ3 aircraft by the end of this year.
“When we can count on 98% mechanical dispatch reliability across our fleet, we are able to offer private, efficient and safe air travel to more people than ever before,” says Alex CEO of JetSuite.
Most recently, Executive AirShare, another a fractional jet ownership company based in Kansas City, introduced three Citation CJ2+ aircraft to their fleet of business jets.
Last year Cessna delivered 571 aircraft, including 181 Citation business jets.
