Citation XLS+ is Cessna centrepiece at China show
Cessna’s Citation XLS+ at CIBAS 2014 represents the company’s joint venture in China with CAIGA.
The Cessna Citation XLS+ business jet is the company’s centrepiece aircraft at the China International Business Aviation Show, which is being held at the Flight Inspection Centre of the Civil Aviation Authority of China in Beijing, China from 16-18 September.
The Citation XLS+ represents Cessna’s joint venture in China and it is also one of the best-selling business jet models ever produced. The Citation XLS+ was certified by the CAAC in April.

Bill Schultz, senior vice president of business development in China, says: “The Citation XLS+ has earned a reputation for performance and reliability. It continues to be a market leader in the midsize business jet segment because it has proven to be a smart investment in helping to grow a business without sacrificing the cabin features you expect in private air travel.”
“The XLS+ is perfectly suited for the Chinese market due to its acquisition and operating costs, its range, and particularly its performance at high-altitude airports in many parts of the country,” adds Schultz.
Cessna and CAIGA announced the joint venture in 2012 to assemble and deliver Citation XLS+ business jets and Caravan turboprops for Chinese customers.
The Citation XLS+ business jet is able to fly from Beijing to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Shanghai, well within a one-day business trip.
