Thrive Aviation has acquired its fourth Citation Longitude, a luxurious and versatile super-mid aircraft with non-stop range throughout North, Central and most of South America. The aircraft is now available for charter and brings the operator's core charter fleet to 16.

“With the addition of our fourth Citation Longitude, we are able to offer our clients even more flexibility and convenience when it comes to their travel needs,” says co-founder and CEO Curtis Edenfield. “We are committed to providing the highest level of quality, service and safety to our clients, and our continued growth is a testament to our success in that mission.”

The Las Vegas-headquartered operator has also opened an operational base at Miami-Opa Locka Executive airport in Florida. A 24,000 sq ft hangar and service facility will support Thrive's fleet growth and charter demand in the east coast and global markets.

“We are proud to continue our story by planting roots in another operational base in the beautiful Miami metro area,” says co-founder, Vitali Lapko. “Florida is an increasingly popular market for our clients and partners, and this new base will allow us to drastically increase our availability to deliver that elevated service Thrive is known for.”
