It’s Tradition: New Airplanes, New NetJets Orders

 - May 6, 2008, 9:07 AM

It’s nearly as certain as death and taxes. As soon as a manufacturer introduces a new airplane, NetJets announces orders. Last month’s NBAA Convention was no exception. The Columbus, Ohio-based fractional jet operator placed orders (including options) for 200 of the newest business jets introduced in Orlando, Fla., by Cessna and Gulfstream, transactions that have a potential value of nearly $2 billion. Specifically, NetJets placed a firm order for 50 G150s, with options for 50 more. NetJets also ordered 100 Citation CJ3s, in addition to 12 more Citation Xs.
