ArcosJet Brings Cessna Citation XLS+ Midsize Jet to MEBAA Show



At the 2022 MEBAA Business Aviation Show, taking place in Dubai Dec. 6-8, ArcosJet will exhibit a Cessna Citation XLS+ business jet. The 2015 aircraft with a 9-seat cabin is available for purchase and immediate delivery.

A classic midsize business jet, the Cessna Citation XLS+ has a range of 3,441 km with a cruising speed of 798 km/h. Powered by two highly efficient Pratt & Whitney PW545C engines, the Citation XLS+ is equipped with state-of-the-art Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite. Its takeoff and landing characteristics allow it to operate off relatively short airfields and fly to small airports.

While this model’s active fleet now amounts to 311 aircraft, only some 12 of them are available for sale. Per ArcosJet estimates, with only about a dozen business jets of this model being in service in the Middle East and North Africa, mostly in Turkey and North African countries, the potential of this aircraft in the region remains underestimated.

“The Citation XLS+ is an excellent workhorse, reliable, practical, roomy and efficient. This aircraft’s range allows for comfortable non-stop flights throughout the Middle East, as well as beyond – to Central Asia, India, and some countries in the North and North-East Africa. The Citation XLS+ will be a great purchase for those who value practicality and just the right balance of price, quality, and performance. The demand for these models in the global aftermarket is consistently high,” notes Sergey Lukin, ArcosJet Aircraft Sales Director.

The aircraft, to be exhibited on the MEBAA static display, was built in 2015 and operated across Europe. It is in excellent condition, its engines are serviced under the PowerAdvantage+ and AUX Advantage programs, and the business jet is also signed on to the ProParts service program.

For ArcosJet, the Middle East market is one of the most important and promising markets. With its headquarters in Dubai, ArcosJet is able to respond as quickly as possible to regional market demands and to maintain and develop relationships with customers in Africa, Central Asia, and India.
