(ST. LOUIS/Jan. 31, 2012) Private jet charter, FBO and aircraft support company Aero Charter announces the recent addition of a 2005 Citation XLS to its charter fleet. This addition is in line with Aero Charter’s response to the increasing demand for its private charter services.
This past September, the company expanded its current facilities to include an additional hangar and ramp area, more than doubling its current capacity.
“Our operations have really shown a steady increase over the last two years,” says John Morgenthaler, president of Aero Charter.
By expanding its facilities, Aero Charter has a greater capacity for fixed base operations (FBO).
“Increasing hangar operations enables us to attract and accommodate additional larger aircraft for our clientele who need greater flexibility. The Citation XLS is a versatile aircraft. It complements our existing fleet, which ranges from twin-engine prop and turbo-prop to long range jets.”
The Citation XLS is a mid-size jet that can access the smaller airports where other jets of this category cannot operate. With seating for up to nine passengers, the XLS can travel nearly 2,000 miles and boasts the shortest takeoff distance of any midsize jet, making it a true multi-purpose aircraft.
“The Citation XLS has long been a favorite of business and private travelers, offering a great balance between capacity and performance,” says Morgenthaler. “So not only can we get you to a remote airstrip in rural Texas, but also we can fly you and your family to the Caribbean without having to refuel.”
