This year CitationShares won awards in two categories: "Fractional Programs" and "Fractional-Card Programs."
"We are happy the editors of the Robb Report and their aviation consultants have distinguished us again this year, said Steve O'Neill, CEO of CitationShares. "They have done an excellent job describing our exceptional reputation and continued growth in the industry."
The Robb Report indicates the standards for inclusion in the 2009 list are rigorous. According to the Report, programs indentified Fractional and Fractional-Card Programs "provide excellent service, offer newer aircraft, manage their operations well and demonstrate flexibility and consistency."
