5 Years of Elite Flying, Edgy Sustainability News

Surpassing a massive 320,000 hours of fleet service since its introduction five years ago, the Cessna Citation Latitude has been the world’s most-delivered midsize business jet for four consecutive years, and is a bonafide hit with private jet travelers.

“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.

But those laurels are not being rested on: The Citation Latitude jet is just one of maker Textron’s fleet of 13 commercial turbine aircraft capable of flying with sustainable aviation fuel. As customers look to lower the environmental impact of their private jet travel, Textron Aviation has embraced the use of biofuel-related power.

The Citation Latitude midsize business jet has a four-passenger range of 2,700 nautical miles (just over 3,000 statute miles) at high-speed cruise and features class-leading take-off length to take advantage of shorter, regional airfields. Inside, expect the most open, spacious, and refined cabin environment in its category, with a flat floor and six feet of cabin height. The Citation Latitude jet can comfortably accommodate up to nine passengers. Travelers also enjoy nonstop flight between destinations like Los Angeles and New York or Geneva and Dubai. The Cessna Citation Latitude starts at $17.5 to $18 million.
