NetJets has received its first Cessna Citation Longitude. The super-midsize business jet was delivered on 31 December 2019.
“We are pleased to have the new Citation Longitude enter the NetJets fleet and continue to strengthen a relationship that goes back decades,” said Ron Draper, president and CEO, Textron Aviation. “The Longitude, with class-leading performance, efficiency and an unrivalled cabin experience, is already redefining its category and will join the Citation Latitude as fleet favourites for NetJets owners.”
“No matter the reason for being on board, from take-off to landing, the innovations of the Citation Longitude make it the most enjoyable flight imaginable,” said Adam Johnson, chairman and CEO, NetJets.
The Citation Longitude is the flagship of the Citation family of business jets. The aircraft gained FAA certification in September 2019 and Textron Aviation began customer deliveries soon after.
NetJets has operated a fleet of nearly 500 Cessna Citations since 1984. In addition to the Citation Longitude order, NetJets has taken delivery of more than 100 Citation Latitude aircraft. Owner demand has ranked the Latitude as the best-selling aircraft in the NetJets portfolio, further establishing the aircraft as Textron Aviation’s best-selling midsize jet.
The Citation Longitude has a range of 3,500 nautical miles (6,482km) and features a 5,950ft (1,814m) cabin altitude.
NetJets’ Longitude features a standard double-club configuration of eight fully berthable seats. A stand-up, 6ft (1.83m)-tall flat-floor cabin and an available streamlined divan are designed to enable easy transit along the cabin passageway. A walk-in baggage compartment is accessible throughout the flight. Passengers can manage their environment and entertainment from any mobile device, and make use of inflight internet.
