Buoyed by the first European deliveries of the new Citation XLS+, Lufthansa Private Jet today said at EBACE that it is now offering “exclusive and flexible” flight options on its own fleet of Citations–a CJ1, two CJ3s and two XLS+ midsize jets. The fleet is operated and managed by Swiss PrivateAviation, a charter/management subsidiary of Swiss International Airlines that was founded last year. Within the Lufthansa Group, Private Jet has access to the airline’s facilities for crew training, as well as airline security, quality processes and worldwide sales channels. In addition to using its own business jets, Lufthansa Private Jet will continue cooperating with “selected and certified” partners, such as DC Aviation and Jet Alliance, to maintain peak-demand flexibility. It could also make use of other managed jets that enter into service with Swiss PrivateAviation. Lufthansa Private Jet flies point-to-point in Europe, as well as in combination with Lufthansa or Lufthansa German Airlines code-share partner Swiss International Airlines long-haul flights through Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Zurich and Geneva at all-inclusive fixed prices.
