Cessna Citation Excel / XLS

Charter a Private Flight on the Cessna Citation Excel / XLS

Private Jets Teterboro offers jet charter services on the Cessna Citation Excel / XLS, an 8 passenger midsize business jet and one of the most popular aircraft in its class.

The original Citation Excel was one of the best selling midsize jets of its time, offering seating for 8-9 passengers with the short runway performance of a light jet. The Citation XLS (560XL) debuted in 2006, combining cross-country range, superb comfort, and outstanding performance with lower cost of operations, allowing private jet travelers to charter a midsize for the cost of a light jet.
