The Citation XL was designed using the airframe of the world's fastest private jet, the Citation X. Using smaller engines and a straight edged wing the Citation XL was able to keep the main features of the Citation X but with a substantial savings in the production and annual flying hour costs.
Having the range to fly from London to Athens, the Citation XL can be hired for most internal domestic charter flights. Its take off and landing capabilities allows this private jet access into many short runways such as Cannes Airport, Lugano Airport and Bern Airport. And like so many other business jets, the Citation XL has been designed for flying the steep approach into London City Airport.
The Citation XL's cabin offers seating for up to eight passengers in a quiet cabin. Fold-out tables and sliding headrests makes the most of the space and offers passengers a comfortable flight. An external compartment provides 80 cubic feet of storage space, along with some additional space in an internal closet. The cabin includes a hot and cold beverage area and a mini-bar.
