The first Cessna Citation Mustang in the Netherlands was registered to Bikkair bv, Rotterdam on 28 December 2007 with BvI 7165. The Very Light Jet was ferried to Rotterdam via Keflavik, Iceland on 11 January 2008. On 17 January the Bikkair VLJ was officially introduced at Rotterdam Airport. Bikkair will commence operations in February. Two other Mustangs will follow shortly and they will take delivery of as much as 10 Mustangs this year. In 2012 they expect to operate 100 VLJ's from different locations all over Europe. On 26 January 2009 Bikkair ceased operations due to the company's inability to arrange critical financing. PH-TXI was cancelled from the Dutch register on 3 September 2009 and the Mustang was exported to Ambeo PLC, Cambridge, in the United Kingdom with tail-number G-OAMB. On 24 October 2011 the Mustang returned to Holland and was registered to Jet Netherlands with BvI 7793. The Mustang was exported to Spain in 2013. New tailnumber EC-LZS. It departed from Rotterdam on 4 December and was cancelled from the Dutch register on 13 December 2013.
