Cessna Citation Latitude Cleared For Europe's Skies

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

29 February 2016

Cessna Aircraft Company has welcomed the receipt of certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency for its Cessna Citation Latitude, enabling the company to market the aircraft in Europe.

The Cessna Citation Latitude, which can accommodate up to nine passengers, has a maximum range of 5,278 kilometers (2,850 nautical miles). The aircraft can make non-stop flights throughout Europe and from as far as Lisbon to Moscow.

Kriya Shortt, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said: "We are thrilled to offer the Citation Latitude to our European customers. This aircraft is ideally suited for this market and can provide customers non-stop access to key destinations throughout the continent as well as North Africa and the Middle East. Customer input was a key driver in the development of the Latitude, which brings the amenities of large cabin aircraft at a midsize acquisition price and best-in-class operating costs."

The aircraft also recently received certification to operate into and out of La Mole Airport, a popular European vacation destination in St. Tropez, France. The Latitude joins a short list of aircraft able to operate at La Mole, which requires this special authorization due to the strict aircraft performance requirements, dense terrain, and heavy airport traffic at the airport.

Throughout the past year, three Latitude demonstrator aircraft have been on a worldwide tour, travelling to more than 20 countries and stopping at major industry trade shows such as the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE), Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE), the Dubai Airshow, and most recently the Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas.
