Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, today celebrates Hahn Air’s addition of a Citation Sovereign at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva. Through an exclusively Citation operated fleet, Hahn Air provides domestic and international scheduled and charter flights from Germany.
“We have enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Hahn Air and are thrilled to continue it as they expand their fleet with a second Citation Sovereign,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Textron Aviation. “Hahn Air’s success exclusively operating Citations underscores the platform’s versatility and that it is ideally suited to the European region."
Hahn Air will take delivery of the Sovereign in June after the completion of select upgrades at Textron Aviation’s Wichita Service Center. The aircraft received avionics upgrades, an interior refurbishment and customized paint scheme to match Hahn Air’s existing fleet of two Citation CJ4s and a Citation Sovereign.
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with Textron Aviation,” Daniel Rudas, general manager and COO of Hahn Air Lines. “The order for yet another Cessna Citation Sovereign is a strategic move that will enable us to produce strong returns with the aircraft’s outstanding medium to long range performance, fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. With this new addition to our thriving fleet, we will reinforce our commitment to delivering exceptional convenience, performance and reliability to all our passengers.”
