CitationShares launched a program–Citelines–that it says offers “payment predictability, customized program options and cost savings never before seen in the industry.” Citelines’ customers can “save tens of thousands of dollars” by choosing to fly on non-peak days. Under Citelines, owners can choose to fly 365 days, 350 days, 335 days or 320 days a year. “The fewer peak days selected, the higher the cost savings.” The program also combines all management and operating costs, including fuel surcharges, repositioning fees and taxes for the year into one predictable payment, according to the company. “There are no hidden costs and the price can be split into equal monthly payments or paid annually at a discount,” said CitationShares. A similar deal is also available with the company’s 20-hour Vector JetCard. “Those who agree to fly only on non-peak days will receive bonus hours at no additional cost.” A spokeswoman told AIN that the Citelines program is open to existing, as well as new customers.
