Delta Private Jets, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, has added five new aircraft to its fleet in the light, midsize and super midsize jet categories as part of the company’s growing private jet travel and management services.
“We’re committed to continuously updating our fleet to ensure our clients have luxurious, safe and convenient private jet travel at their fingertips,” said David Sneed, Delta Private Jets Executive Vice President and COO. “Our exceptional fleet is available for our chartered jet clients as well as our Jet Card program members.”
Delta Private Jets welcomes a new, Las Vegas-based Citation CJ3+ straight from Cessna. This jet offers a gray interior, leather seating, advanced cockpit technology including an upgraded Intrinzic flight deck powered by Garmin G3000 and the latest in onboard technical amenities with Wi-Fi, multiple power outlets, and Cessna Clarity cabin management system. This aircraft provides efficient positioning for customers in the west.
To expand its lineup in the popular midsize category, Delta Private Jets has added a Cessna Citation XLS. Building on the success of the Cessna Citation Excel, the Citation XLS incorporates flight deck enhancements including a glass cockpit based on the Honeywell Primus 1000 EFIS avionics suite and upgraded PW545B engines with improved performance. This aircraft comfortably seats eight passengers and has Wi-Fi. The combination of standard single seating and a bench for two allows for several options for conversation and work space.
Delta Private Jets also added a Citation Excel. This aircraft is known for its reliability, performance and spacious interior.
Also, a Bombardier Learjet 45XR, which will be based in Miami-Opa Locka, Fla., will be added to the fleet. Offering seating for eight with room to recline and swivel, the interior is designed for luxurious travel. This aircraft displays the classic design and speed customers expect from Learjet.
Super Midsize Jet
To provide customers with additional options for longer-haul travel, Delta Private Jets will add a Citation Sovereign+ to its super midsize fleet. With a class-leading short takeoff performance and enhanced technology, including the Garmin G5000 avionics suite and the Cessna Clarity cabin management system, the Sovereign+ can take passengers farther than a Sovereign, enabling many nonstop cross-country flights. The jet can comfortably seat eight passengers in a standard configuration and has full sleeping capacity for four. Wi-Fi, multiple video monitors, a DVD player and microwave are all available for passengers.
