Air Charter Scotland has positioned a Cessna Citation CJ2 for charter out of its home airport in Glasgow following a long absence there, the charter and aircraft management provider announced today. “While we have had our offices at Glasgow for 20 years, we haven’t had an aircraft positioned out of our home since 2008,” said Air Charter Scotland COO Derek Thomson. “This is terrific timing for discerning private jet customers, many of them new to charter, who are responding to the restrictions and reduced scheduled service frequencies brought about by the pandemic.”

“Light jets are the most popular charter aircraft in the UK right now and this one with its enhanced performance benefits will be a popular addition to our fleet,” Thomson added. The CJ2 features new paint, dual Garmin GTN avionics, a refurbished six-seat interior, and Tamarack Atlas winglets. Additionally, the light twin underwent a two-week maintenance check before its placement at Glasgow Airport.

The company also operates bases at London Luton and London Biggin Hill airports. Beginning in January it created Air Charter Scotland Europe and a new European air operator’s certificate with an initial two aircraft—a Cessna Citation CJ3 based in Malta and a Bombardier Challenger 350 based in Nice, France.
