Cessna opens Doncaster Citation service centre


First Cessna owned Citation service centre in UK opened at the Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield.

Cessna Aircraft announced the first Cessna-owned Citation service centre in the United Kingdom, located at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield.

The newly-acquired facility, rebranded as the Doncaster Citation service centre, offers a wide range of services. Previously known as Kinch Aviation Services, the business has operated for 15 years and been a Cessna authorised service facility for the past four years.

The UK facility becomes the fourth Cessna-operated Citation service centre in Europe, complementing facilities in Paris, France; Prague, Czech Republic; and Valencia, Spain.

Joe Hepburn, Cessna senior vice president, customer service, said “Our European customers have been asking for modernization and paint capabilities. Our announcement this month of new Citation Service Centers in Spain and now the UK means we can now offer these services for the more than 1,070 Citations currently operating in the region. We are extremely excited about the benefits these facilities will deliver for the region’s Citation fleet.”

Hepburn continued “Growing our service presence globally is very important as it enables us to better serve our broad customer base. The location of the Doncaster facility has been popular with our European customers and the center has a proven record of high-quality customer service.”

Cessna now has a total of 13 factory-operated Citation Service Centres across Europe, the United States and Singapore.
