It is time to celebrate - five years since the first customer took delivery of Cessna Citation Latitude! The world’s most-delivered midsize business jet for four consecutive years proved an immediate hit with customers due to its reliability, versatility and impressive 2,700-nautical mile range. With nearly 240 delivered to date, the Citation Latitude jet now comprises more than 40 percent of all midsize business jet deliveries since 2015 and has surpassed 320,000 fleet hours since entry into service. 

“Five years since its introduction, the Citation Latitude is now an industry icon. Business travelers were the first to appreciate its versatility and comfortable cabin which makes the jet ideal for business productivity and leisure alike,” said Rob Scholl, senior vice president, Sales. “Today, the jet’s innovative design has enabled its deployment in a variety of applications, from European air ambulance operators, to the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, which in April of this year took delivery of two Citation Latitude jets configured for flight inspection.”

The popular aircraft entered the market in 2015 and quickly established itself as the Citation with the highest average daily utilization with leading private aviation company, NetJets, taking more than 120 deliveries. With ample cabin space for seven passengers and the ability to fly nonstop between destinations such as Los Angeles and New York or Geneva and Dubai, the Citation Latitude business jet is the most in-demand aircraft among NetJets Owners and remains the most-delivered midsize business jet throughout the past four consecutive years with certification in more than 40 countries.

“Customers have returned to the Citation Latitude time and time again, proving its enduring performance over the past half-decade. Its low direct operating costs have made it the cornerstone of many fleets and we look forward to seeing this popular aircraft rise to new missions,” continued Scholl.

As customers look to lower the environmental impact of their journeys on the planet, Textron Aviation is committed to conserving the world’s resources by embracing the use of sustainable aviation fuel. The Citation Latitude jet is just one of the company’s fleet of 13 commercial turbine aircraft capable of flying with sustainable aviation fuel. Citation Latitude is backed by Textron Aviation’s extensive global customer service team. Customers have direct access to more than 3,000 expert employees, including service representatives offering personalized maintenance, inspections, parts, repairs, avionics upgrades, equipment installations, refurbishments and other specialized services.

Citation Latitude midsize business jet, with a four-passenger range of 2,700 nautical miles (5,000 km) at high-speed cruise, is set apart from the competition by its combination of comfort and efficiency. The aircraft’s class-leading take-off field length of 3,580 feet provides operators with greater range out of short fields. Inside, the Citation Latitude offers an unrivaled cabin experience featuring the most open, spacious, bright and refined cabin environment in its category. With a flat floor and six feet of cabin height, innovation abounds with exceptional features designed throughout the aircraft.

The wireless cabin management system provides productive connectivity and entertainment to each passenger through their personal electronic devices. With standard seating configurations, the Citation Latitude jet can comfortably accommodate up to nine passengers. Extended maintenance intervals provide owners with the lowest direct operating costs in the midsize segment.
