NetJets accepted the first delivery of the new Cessna Citation Longitude. The first super-midsize business jet arrived on December 31, 2019, and we anticipate that it will enter service in the coming weeks. This represents a significant milestone for both NetJets and Textron Aviation as we bring this revolutionary aircraft to NetJets Owners. The Citation Longitude incorporates the latest technologies throughout the aircraft such as integrated autopilot, and autothrottle systems with emergency descent mode (EDM). The aircraft is equally designed around the pilot experience, passenger comfort, and overall performance, delivering an aircraft that lives up to its designation as the flagship of the Citation family of business jets. 

Adam Johnson, Chairman & CEO, NetJets, commented :“No matter the reason for being on board, from takeoff to landing, the innovations of the Citation Longitude make it the most enjoyable flight imaginable.We’re excited to build on the popularity of the Latitude and are pleased to welcome the first Citation Longitude into our worldwide fleet. We can’t wait for our Owners to experience this aircraft and the exceptional flight experience that it offers.” 

Ron Draper, president and CEO, Textron Aviation told: “We are pleased to have the new Citation Longitude enter the NetJets fleet and continue to strengthen a relationship that goes back decades. The Longitude, with class-leading performance, efficiency and an unrivaled cabin experience, is already redefining its category and will join the Citation Latitude as fleet favorites for NetJets Owners.”

NetJets and Textron means strong and longterm relationship. Since 1984, NetJets has operated a fleet of nearly 500 Cessna Citations, including the Citation XLS, Citation Sovereign, and Citation Latitude. In fact, because of Owner demand we’ve taken delivery of more than 100 Citation Latitude aircraft alone, which currently makes it our best-selling aircraft.
