History of the Cessna Citation Excel

The Cessna Citation Excel is one of the most popular private jets among our customers. The Excel series was launched in April 1998 with over 200 orders placed. The manufacturer Cessna has subsequently improved the original Excel model and released the improved XLS and XLS+ versions. All three versions are highly reliable, in keeping with Cessna’s reputation. Today, a new XLS costs about 11 million euros. It is the best selling business jet in the world. One of its advantages is the size of its baggage compartment: the largest in its class.
