“This allows customers operating out of high-elevation airports — like many found throughout Latin America — to do more with their aircraft,” said Chris Hearne, vice president of jets at Cessna.

Within Latin America, the Citation M2 can now operate with non-stop reach from places such as La Paz, Bolivia, to Quito, Ecuador; La Paz to Sao Paulo, Brazil; or La Paz to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
