Fly Alliance has taken ownership of its first Cessna Citation XLS Gen2 that is available for charter now. The delivery forms part of an order placed with Textron in October 2022 for up to 20 Cessna Citation jets, four firm with options for 16, covering 12 Cessna Citation XLS+ Gen 2, six Cessna Citation Latitude and two Cessna Citation Longitudes.

“We want to reiterate to our valued customers that no matter what type of trip you are planning, we have the perfect jet for you,” says CEO and co-founder Kevin Wargo. “With this new Citation XLS Gen2 being added to our fleet, we believe that our customers can continue to choose a luxury jet that suits their needs and meets their overall private flying experience. This brand new aircraft will play a vital role in continuing to put our customer’s needs first.”

Fly Alliance, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, offers jet card and on-demand Part 135 charter services as well as maintenance, parts, sales and acquisitions. Its fleet of managed and charter aircraft, which includes six Hawker 800XPs, are based in Orlando, Stuart, Palm Beach and Miami, Florida, as well as Providence, Rhode Island.

The company has also received an IS-BAO Stage I rating. “At the core of what we do, safety is our foremost priority. Receiving this certificate stems from our continuous desire to provide the highest level of safety to our customers,” says Wargo. “Safety is the very foundation of the company, and no matter how you choose to approach aircraft ownership, we will continue setting a new standard in safety of aviation. We are pleased to be able to open up our network of European-based clients with this new certification level.”
