Of all the flight-services providers, Cessna-owned CitationAir underwent perhaps the most significant restructuring during the recession. Those changes culminated with the company’s announcement that it was discontinuing its fractional-ownership program (although it will service all existing contracts through their expiration) and shifting its focus to its jet card, charter, and aircraft management and sales services. Now CitationAir is planning to remove jet cards from its offerings. The company says that its primary objective is selling aircraft and that it will make new programs available in the coming months.
The CitationAir fleet remains one of the best in the business. It consists of approximately 70 Cessna-built aircraft, including the Citation CJ3, XLS, Sovereign, and X, the latter of which it added in 2011. The company continues to offer top-notch aircraft sales and management services, and its Corporate Solutions on-demand charter program remains an industry leader in terms of service, safety, and reliability. 877.692.4828, www.citationair.com
