Cessna Aircraft has delivered a Canadian registered Citation CJ3+ aircraft to fractional operator AirSprint.

Kriya Shortt, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Textron Aviation,  said: “With more than 150 Cessna Citation light jets in the region, the CJ-series has proven to be the light jet of choice for Canadian operators, and we are confident the CJ3+ will be an ideal addition to the AirSprint fleet.

“The combination of short field capability, excellent range, and low operating costs coupled with the next generation Garmin 3000 flight deck, are key features that make the CJ3+ perfectly suited for our customers like AirSprint.”

AirSprint operates the largest fractional fleet of private aircraft in Canada, offering the Cessna Citation XL/XLS, Citation CJ2+ and Citation CJ3+. The company serves owners in regions including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and the Maritimes.

James Elian, president and chief executive officer of of AirSprint, added: “The Citation CJ3+ is a natural extension for our fleet of Citation CJ2+ aircraft. Our fractional owners enjoy the efficiency and comfort of the CJ2+, and with the extra range of the CJ3+, the new addition will be the ideal aircraft to efficiently experience AirSprint’s personalized service while travelling non-stop to more North American destinations. We are really excited to add such a capable aircraft to our fleet.”

The Citation CJ3+ seats nine passengers and is flown by a single pilot.
