Cessna’s CitationAir jet card and fractional ownership operation has joined with British Airways to create PrivateConnect. PrivateConnect gives British Airways customers access to CitationAir’s entire fleet of Citation airplanes.
Customers pay for their Citation time by the hour, and have no contract or long-term commitment. Part of the deal even includes complimentary chauffeured transportation from fixed-base operators to British Airways terminals when flying internationally on British Airways. Similarly, there will be escorted transportation from a British Airways terminal to the CitationAir airplane.
PrivateConnect will be available to British Airways Executive Club members, passengers who have flown British Airways within the previous 12 months, and organizations that hold a corporate account with British Airways.
Robert Boyle, British Airways director of strategy and business units, said, “Now we can offer our customers a seamless service to fly when they want and where they want, to almost any destination within the United States, Caribbean, southern Canada, and Mexico in the luxury and privacy of their very own private jet.”
AOPA Pilot Editor at Large Tom Horne has worked at AOPA since the early 1980s. He began flying in 1975 and has an airline transport pilot and flight instructor certificates. He’s flown everything from ultralights to Gulfstreams and ferried numerous piston airplanes across the Atlantic.
