Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based OneJet, which provides scheduled business jet service in the Eastern U.S., will add two Cessna Citation CJ4s to its fleet in first-quarter 2018 and plans to take up to 10 of the light jets per year for its expanding network, Textron Aviation and OneJet announced on Wednesday at NBAA 2017. The Citations will come from the pre-owned direct inventory of Textron Aviation, Cessna’s parent company, with Textron Financial financing the leased jets.
“Our agreement with Textron Aviation is an important step for our growing fleet model,” said OneJet CEO Matthew Maguire told AIN. He expects the eight-passenger jets will typically be 2012 to 2014 model years. No decision has been made on where the first two Citations will be based.
Launched in 2016, OneJet now offers more than 180 flights per week to almost a dozen cities, including Albany, New York; Cincinnati, Ohio; Hartford, Connecticut; and Nashville, Tennessee on a fleet of eight Hawker 400XPs operated by Contour Aviation, Maguire said. He expects the company will offer 300 flights per week by year-end.
“We see about 1,200 routes in the Eastern U.S.” that OneJet could serve, Maguire said.
