Sept. 7, 2010, Greenwich, CT. – CitationAir by Cessna has announced a strategic alliance with Air Partner plc. Through the newly formed service, CitationAir customers will have exclusive access to private jet travel in Europe through Air Partner’s extensive network of private and commercial aircraft.

This alliance is the latest example of CitationAir’s strategy to bolster its customer base and significantly expand its geographic service area by teaming with like-minded, world-class organizations that share CitationAir’s passion for excellence and its high standards for extraordinary customer service and safety. In June, CitationAir launched PrivateConnect™ with British Airways, the United Kingdom’s largest carrier, to offer British Airways customers access to CitationAir’s fleet.

“At CitationAir, our focus is to provide an unrivaled, high-quality personal travel experience to our customers,” said Steve O’Neill, Founder and CEO of CitationAir. “By aligning with Air Partner, we are very excited to provide a seamless transportation solution that allows our customers access to Europe and beyond, with the level of service to which they are accustomed.”

Under the agreement, CitationAir passengers can access Air Partner for flights within Air Partner’s European service area at a fixed, all-inclusive price with guaranteed fleet availability on a trip-by-trip basis. Air Partner JetCard customers gain guaranteed access to CitationAir’s fleet of 80 Cessna Citation jets and award-winning service within its North American service area.


“We are thrilled to form this exclusive alliance with CitationAir, a company that shares our unwavering commitment to superior quality and award-winning customer service,” said Marc Briffa, CEO of Air Partner. “Now our customers will have the additional benefit of private travel throughout CitationAir’s service area that matches the high quality travel experience they have come to expect from Air Partner.”
