Helijet is pleased to announce it will be expanding its existing fixed-wing charter services to offer private air travel customers greater non-stop travel range, comfort and convenience for North American and intercontinental charter flights.

Helijet Citation XHelijet has added a Cessna Citation X turbojet aircraft to its fleet, adding superior cabin capacity and value to meet, and exceed, the expectations of Helijet’s helicopter and fixed-wing guests.

With a travel range double that of smaller corporate jets, the Citation X, is one of the world’s fastest commercial jets with cruising speeds of over 700mph or Mach .92 and capable of flying at altitudes of 50,000 ft. The aircraft will be configured and feature:

  • Eight club-style cabin passenger seating, with stand-up cabin configuration
  • Private lavatory facilities
  • Ample temperature-controlled independent luggage and cargo compartments
  • Full phone, wi-fi, internet and streaming movie service at each passenger seat.

With the Citation X’s exceptional range, passengers can fly non-stop from Vancouver to numerous North American destinations such as Cabo-St. Lucas, Toronto, New York, Miami, Hawaii, plus the Caribbean.  Flight plans to take passengers even further to European destinations can also be arranged.

Helijet President and CEO Danny Sitnam stated today, “Our team is excited to now offer and afford our clients the ability to meet their long-distance travel requirements in a unique business class cabin environment, while delivering non-stop, uninterrupted and hassle-free airfield to airfield service.”

Guests chartering Helijet’s Citation X can now board and deplane from Helijet’s exclusive South Terminal passenger lounge facility, where they are afforded complementary and secure vehicle parking, lounge waiting facilities and complimentary ground shuttle service to YVR’s International/Domestic terminal if making connecting flights.

In addition to the Citation X air service, Helijet complements on-going travel with its six-passenger Learjet aircraft, as well as its scheduled helicopter services from downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria and Nanaimo.

Citation X air service will be available from March 1, 2024.
