The first Cessna-owned Citation Service Center in the UK has been opened on Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield. The 50,000-sq-ft facility, branded as the Doncaster Citation Service Center, offers services from maintenance to modernization and paint.

The UK operation becomes the fourth Cessna-operated Citation Service Center in Europe and complements facilities in Paris; Prague; and Valencia, Spain. It brings to 13 the number of factory-operated Citation Service Centers across Europe, the U.S. and Singapore. The network includes the ServiceDirect initiative through which the company operates 22 mobile service units in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and provides further field support through Cessna’s AOG Go Teams, Air Response Team, HomeService and Temporary Personnel Support.

Joe Hepburn, Cessna senior vice president for customer service, said, “Our European customers have been asking for modernization and paint capabilities. Our announcement this month of new Citation Service Centers in Spain and now the UK means we can offer these services for the more than 1,070 Citations currently operating in the region. We are extremely excited about the benefits these facilities will deliver for the region’s Citation fleet.”
