Amman, Jordan-based executive charter operator Arab Wings has taken delivery of a new Cessna Citation XLS jet. The first aircraft of its type in the Middle East, the XLS has joined a fleet that already consists of a Bombardier Challenger 604 and a Raytheon Beech King Air 200. The aircraft fly out of Amman’s downtown Marka International Airport to points within the Middle East and into Europe.
Arab Wings started operations 30 years ago as a subsidiary of Royal Jordanian Airlines. Today the flag carrier holds only 25 percent of its equity, the remaining shares being in the hands of private Jordanian investors. The company bought the new XLS through Cessna’s Middle East distributor Wallan Aviation of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.Ꞿ
