Cessna has delivered the first Cessna Citation Latitude midsize business jet registered in Mexico to a customer who plans to utilize the aircraft for business travel within Mexico and throughout North America. This is the third new Citation for the customer. Avemex will operate the Citation Latitude on its air taxi certificate for this corporate owner.
“The Latitude has experienced an outstanding market reception with 23 aircraft delivered to customers around the world in its first seven months, more than any other in its class and we are excited to bring it to our customers in Mexico,” said Bob Gibbs, regional vice president of sales for Latin America and Caribbean. “The aircraft is ideally suited for the region with its ability to operate out of high-elevation airports such as those found throughout Mexico, including Toluca Airport.”
The Latitude can accommodate up to nine passengers and has a maximum range of 2,850 nautical miles. Cabin highlights include a flat floor, 6ft cabin height and new cabin cooling system and pressurization systems, providing a 5,950ft cabin altitude at the aircraft’s maximum operating altitude of 45,000ft. Cessna’s wireless cabin technology system provides productive connectivity and entertainment to each passenger through their PEDs.
