NetJets to buy up to 325 Citation Longitude and Citation Hemisphere


Textron Aviation Inc. and NetJets announced at NBAA-BACE last week fleet agreements for the option to purchase up to 175 super-midsize Cessna Citation Longitude aircraft and up to 150 Cessna Citation Hemisphere aircraft.

NetJets has operated a fleet of nearly 500 Cessna Citations since 1984, and this agreement could increase the fleet to more than 800 aircraft over the next 10 to 15 years. To date, NetJets operates a fleet of 75 Citation Latitudes and expects to have 100 in service by mid-2019. The option to purchase the Hemisphere distinguishes NetJets as the launch customer for Textron Aviation’s clean sheet large-cabin aircraft.
