Geneva-based private jet charter company DALaviation Switzerland as the first Cessna Citation CJ4 Gen2 customer in Europe. The largest Citation jet in the light jet segment, the Cessna Citation CJ4 Gen2 will support DALaviation Switzerland as the company continues to increase its customer base throughout Europe by delivering an elevated passenger experience. The Citation CJ4 Gen2 will be the third addition to DALaviation Switzerland’s business jet fleet, which includes a Cessna Citation CJ2+ and a Citation CJ1. 

“The CJ4 Gen2 is the ideal aircraft for charter operators like DALaviation Switzerland that seek to provide customers with total cabin comfort, first-class flight experience and flexibility – all backed by the most comprehensive service network in the industry,” said Tom Perry, vice president of Sales, EMEA, Textron Aviation. “With the addition of the CJ4 Gen2 to its fleet, DALaviation Switzerland will be able to serve more customers who will have access to a greater number of destinations across Europe, due to the aircraft’s best-in-class range of 1,926 nautical miles (3,567 km). We are proud to support DALaviation Switzerland as the operator continues to deliver exceptional aircraft charter services in Europe.” 

The new aircraft will be fueled with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at delivery in the coming weeks, aligning with Textron Aviation’s commitment to meet industry goals for reducing carbon emissions. 

“Citation business jets have a solid reputation among our customers as reliable, high-quality aircraft, and we are proud to be the first company in Europe to add the CJ4 Gen2 to our charter fleet,” said Nicolas Trefeil, founder and CEO, DALaviation Switzerland. “Flexibility and wellness are top-of-mind for our customers as travel resumes, and our client base is growing as people are increasingly turning to charter services for an exclusive and comfortable flying experience. Alongside our CJ1 and CJ2+ business jets, the CJ4 Gen2 will help us continue expanding our business and exceeding our customers’ expectations.” 

The Cessna Citation CJ4, a 525C type aircraft, achieved European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification in 2011, and EASA interior certification for the CJ4 Gen2 is expected in June. 

The largest Citation in the light jet segment offers operators a host of features that elevate ramp presence and in-flight comfort, including a new stair and handrail, premium seating options and enhanced ambiance lighting throughout. The cabin has been designed to optimize comfort and productivity, with an upgraded wireless cabin management system that enables passengers to stream entertainment and wirelessly control cabin lighting, temperature and window shades from their mobile device. 

The single-pilot certified jet combines superior speed, range and operating economics when compared with larger aircraft, making it the ideal platform for owner operators or corporate missions. The CJ4 Gen2 has seating for up to ten passengers and includes a notable 1,040-pound baggage capacity.
