NetJets has taken delivery of the 100th aircraft for its European fleet—a milepost that comes as part of the fractional aircraft provider's €2.2 billion ($2.36 billion) investment in its global fleet. The milestone aircraft is a midsize Cessna Citation Latitude, the delivery of which was marked with a celebration and water cannon salute in Cascais, Portugal.
“I am thrilled to be celebrating the further expansion of our European fleet with this latest aircraft delivery,” said NetJets Europe executive director Christian Luwisch. “NetJets is proud of its unwavering commitment to safety, service, and unmatched global access. This landmark achievement is a testament to all at NetJets continuing to deliver exceptional service and access to our owners.”
Globally, NetJets has more than 800 business jets in its fleet, ranging from the Embraer Phenom 300E light twin to the ultra-long-range Bombardier Global 7500. The company’s fleet investment calls for the addition of more than 130 business jets by the end of this year.
