Business Jet pilots, crew and passengers see almost as many hotel rooms as they do airport runways. In fact, industry experts say that on an average night as many as 30,000 business jet pilots and crew members are staying in hotel rooms, and that doesn’t even count the aircrafts passengers.
Many operators managing these aircraft state that making these bookings are a huge hassle. And the team at DownRoute says that they know how to fix it.

As the FAA and EASA certifications of the Citation Longitude loom ever closer, manufacturer Cessna is setting out to demonstrate just how quiet the aircraft’s cabin is.
Once certified and the first deliveries are made, the longitude will be the largest Citation to date, with a carrying capacity of up to 12 passengers. With just four passengers aboard, the aircraft boasts a minimum range of 3,500nm.

There has been a flood of information lately, due to an array of value reports and forcasts, often providing conflicting data.
