Cessna Opens Citation Service Center in Spain
Cessna on Monday announced the opening of its new regional Citation service center in Valencia, Spain.
The Wichita, Kan.-based manufacturer said the growth of the region’s Citation fleet prompted the opening of the new center in Valencia—which will offer repair, completion, fulfillment, maintenance and customization service to Citation customers across Western Europe and North Africa.
“Cessna has long provided extensive customer support to our European customers, but the rapid growth of the region's Citation fleet to more than 1,000 aircraft prompted us to step up our support network. The new Citation Service Center at Valencia has been developed in close cooperation with our customers and is a showcase for Cessna's latest service standards and innovations,” said Joe Hepburn, senior vice president, customer service at Cessna.
The facility features 62,400 square feet of hangar space and will provide scheduled maintenance—with capabilities ranging from hydraulic and battery services to avionics modifications.
Cessna now operates 12 Citation service centers across the United States, Europe and Singapore.
