Hahn Air, the scheduled German airline and leading provider of distribution services for air, rail and shuttle partners, announced the acquisition of a Cessna Citation Sovereign business jet to expand its fleet.
The business jet will support Hahn Air’s plans to further develop its flight operations to medium and long-haul destinations. The Hahn Air fleet now consists of two Cessna Citation CJ4s and the newly acquired Sovereign.
The exterior of the Citation Sovereign received new paintwork, and the interior was completely modified in order to cater for the high demands of Hahn Air’s clients. The aircraft, which will be delivered to Hahn Air’s hub airport Dusseldorf in late November, will be put into operations by the end of December.
The aircraft has a capacity of eight passengers and a crew of two pilots and one flight attendant. Its maximum take-off weight is 13,744 kg, with a cruising speed of 760 – 852 km/h and a maximum cruising altitude of 47,000 feet (14325.6 metres). The range of up to 5,186 km allows for the addition of new medium and long haul non-stop charter destinations such as Canada or the United Arabian Emirates.
“As a global player in the airline industry and a member of major airline alliances such as IATA, GBAA and ERA, we are pleased to take another step towards expanding our charter business as well as our reach. We are certain that the Sovereign is a great fit for Hahn Air’s charter business due to its exceptional performance and range and will enable us to further extend our flight network.” said Daniel Rudas, General Manager and COO of Hahn Air Lines.
