Another Cessna Citation XLS+ Added to the Fleet

With 8 Aircraft of this Type, DC Aviation Becomes Largest XLS+ Operator in Europe.


Stuttgart, 22nd July 2014: A new Cessna Citation XLS+ has been added to DC Aviation´s continuously growing operations. With eight Citation XLS+, DC Aviation is now the largest operator of this type of aircraft in Europe. Along with the largest cabin in its class, the XLS+ combines transcontinental range and first-class cabin luxury with remarkable performance efficiency. This mid-size jet is loaded with features generally reserved for large, commercial aircraft and it is equally appreciated by both passengers and operators.

Already, Germany´s largest business jet operator and one of the leading operators in Europe, DC Aviation continues to strengthen its ties with large multinational clients. The ongoing expansion with several branches in Dubai, Zurich, Malta, and Moscow demonstrates DC Aviation’s commitment to the Business Aviation market in general.

DC Aviation Group´s business is very much diversified in its depth of services. “Our experience includes executive jet charter services, FBO services, repair and maintenance services, and of course aircraft management services”, states Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation. “Our current portfolio supports the dynamic growth strategy of DC Aviation in both Western and Eastern Europe as well as in the Near East. This is the best way to prepare the company for current and future developments on the world market”, he added.
