Citation XLS Charter Flights

Citation XLS Jet Charter

Citation XLS receives high marks from corporate jet crowd by combining lightweight handling with mid-size amenities.

While the Citation XLS corporate jet is nimble enough to compete in the lightweight class, it easily holds its own against its mid-size counterparts. Produced by American-based Cessna, the XLS is one of the best selling business jets of all time, and for good reason.

The Citation XLS immediately stands out from other mid-size contenders with its class-leading takeoff distance of 3,560 feet (many of its competitors are in the 5,000-foot range). If you need a luxury jet that can operate out of smaller airports, this is it.

When configured in its standard executive seating arrangement, the XLS comfortably carries seven passengers. However, it can handle a higher-density seating plan for up to nine when needed.

With a cabin measuring more than 18 feet in length, there’s ample room for corporate jet travellers to stretch out on longer journeys. Plus, there’s enough cabin height to stand up in.

The Citation XLS can manage trips of 2,110 nm, and with a 507 mph cruising speed, it’ll get you wherever you’re travelling quickly. Potential flight plans include:

  • Houston to Acapulco
  • Chicago to Nassau
  • Boston to West Palm Beach
  • Seattle to Winnipeg
