Heron Aviation has added a German registered Citation XLS+ to its AOC. The aircraft will bolster Heron Aviation’s rapidly expanding charter fleet and fill urgent capacity needs in the European super-midsize segment.

Accountable manager Martin Helbing says: “As our charter fleet continues to grow and expand, the entire Heron team is focused on maintaining our rigorous quality standards with our familiar and personal approach to aircraft management. It’s all too easy to let fleet growth come with a drop in service quality and a more procedural approach, but for the Heron team an individual and tailored client approach will always be part of our core values. The entire team is excited to welcome D-CPSH to the charter market.”

Manufactured in 2017, the Citation XLS features an eight place standard passenger layout arranged with comfortable seating positions and natural lighting with modern finishings. It will be based in northern Germany, so that almost all of Europe is just a short direct flight away.
