Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport (TEB) in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce that one of its charter aircraft has just been renovated inside and out. The 2004 Citation XLS (N43HF) has been completely refurbished with new paint and interior, giving the appearance of a brand new aircraft. This midsize business jet is currently based at Hayward Executive Airport (HWD) in Hayward, CA, and is immediately available for charter.
The base color of the new paint job was completed in Matterhorn White, and is supplemented with silver, blue, and charcoal gray striping. The comfortable cabin features chocolate brown tones on the seats, divan, sidewalls, curtains, and carpeting. Amenities include Gogo Biz® high speed wifi, CD/DVD player, Airshow®, and an Inmarsat satellite phone system. Its large external storage compartment is convenient for trips with oversize luggage items, such as golf clubs or hockey equipment.
Chris Battaglia, Director of Charter Sales, is very excited about the new look and feel of the aircraft. He says, “The Citation XLS is the perfect midsize jet for our clients in the Northern California region because it can easily reach popular destinations like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Vancouver. Now that we have new paint and interior, and since owner approval is not required for booking this aircraft, we expect demand for this plane to increase significantly. We are committed to providing our clientele with an outstanding charter experience, and investment in our assets such as this will help us achieve that objective.”
