Cessna is readying the delivery of a
Citation CJ3 to ACR Aero-Charter Airlines, making it the first
Ukrainian-registered Citation business jet. The first of four
Citations ordered by ACR, a second CJ3 will join the fleet in July,
with another CJ3 and an XLS+ scheduled for delivery in 2010.
Based in Kiev, ACR is one of Ukraine’s leading air charter
businesses. Founded in 1997, the company operates a diverse fleet
of business jets and has selected the Citation family as ideal for
its future fleet expansion plans.
ACR’s delivery has been facilitated by Cessna’s
authorized sales representative Jet-Alliance, which worked closely
with the Ukrainian authorities to secure certification, and Cessna
Finance Corporation, which has provided financing for the fleet
“ACR has established a leading position in the Ukrainian
market by offering a world-class service. The Citation CJ3 and XLS+
will strengthen our light and midsize capabilities and thereby
enable us to serve a wider range of customers,” said Michael
Semenov, president of ACR.
“Through the operating capabilities of the Citation range
and the strength of Cessna’s representation in the region, we
have been able to deliver significant value to ACR, which will
enhance both its and Cessna’s presence in the Ukrainian
business jet market,” said Trevor Esling, Cessna’s vice
president for International Sales.
