During the National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) Textron Aviation has entered into a purchase agreement with Fly Alliance for up to 20 Cessna Citation business jets, four firm with options for 16 additional aircraft. Fly Alliance will use the aircraft for its luxury private jet charter operations and expects to take delivery of the first aircraft, an XLS Gen2, in 2023.
Fly Alliance, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, offers jet card and on-demand Part 135 charter services as well as maintenance, parts, sales and acquisitions. Fly Alliance’s fleet of managed and charter aircraft are based in Orlando, Stuart, Palm Beach and Miami, Florida, as well as Providence, Rhode Island. The company’s fleet includes six Hawker 800XP aircraft. This will be its first Citation.
“The Fly Alliance acquisition of up to 20 brand-new aircraft from Textron Aviation expands our product offering to our members and customers,” said Kevin Wargo, CEO of Alliance Aviation Group. “This is an excellent path to building our fleet size to 100 aircraft in the years to come.”
