Cessna Gains Approval for New Service Center in Spain


ORLANDO, Fla.– Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has gained corporate approval to build a new European Citation Service Center in Spain to keep ahead of the growing fleet demands in the region. The Spanish facility will complement the Citation Service Center operating at Le Bourget Airport outside Paris since 1997.

“We have almost 900 Citations in Europe and the number grows every month, so we need the additional capacity to continue to provide the high quality service our customers are used to getting,” said Mark Paolucci, senior vice president, Customer Service for Cessna. “We conducted an extensive location search before deciding on Spain, and we are very pleased with the cooperation from Spanish authorities.”

Paolucci said Cessna and Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (AENA) in Madrid have signed a letter of intent to develop a site in Spain and are working on specific details toward a final contract.

“We see this as a key step in a dynamic effort to take our service for our European operators to the next level,” Paolucci said.

Cessna hopes to break ground on the new facility in 2009 and begin operations there in late 2010.

Cessna’s current Citation service network spans the globe with 10 company-owned service centers and more than two dozen authorized service centers.
