British Airways announces new Atlantic service for premium passengers

16-Jun-2010 10:20 AM

British Airways and CitationAir by Cessna signed (14-Jun-2010) a relationship agreement to offer premium travel benefits to passengers on both sides of the Atlantic. CitationAir is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cessna Aircraft Co (Wichita Business Journal, 15-Jun-2010). The new PrivateConnect service will provide BA customers with access to CitationAir’s fleet of Cessna Citation aircraft, at a pay-per-hour rate with no contract or long-term commitment. As part of the new association, CitationAir customers will receive complimentary chauffeured transportation from the FBO to the British Airways terminal when flying internationally on BA. PrivateConnect will be available to British Airways Executive Club members, passengers who have flown the airline in the previous 12 months and organisations that hold a corporate account with the airline. All trips going to or from a British Airways flight will include escorted transportation from the British Airways terminal to the CitationAir aircraft, or vice versa. [more]
