The Cessna Citation III is a luxury business jet manufactured by Cessna Aircraft Company. Cessna is widely known for manufacturing safe, reliable aircraft in a broad range of categories, from light piston-powered training aircraft to advanced business jets. MERLIN1 is pleased to announce the introduction of the Citation III to its fleet to better serve our guests. Cessna designed the Citation III with serenity and privacy in mind, and MERLIN1 offers the jet for charter services in Austin and San Antonio.

Spacious Cabin

The Citation III has a spacious cabin volume of 422 cubic feet which can host up to eight passengers and two pilots. The cabin layout was designed to comfortably seat eight passengers: two on the couch and six in club seats. At the rear end of the cabin is a fully enclosed lavatory with a belted toilet seat and sink. With a roomy cabin height of 5 feet and 9 inches, the Citation III was designed for passengers to pass through the cabin easily.

Extra Luggage Space

If you are planning to travel for a long weekend with family or for a business trip, MERLIN1 is ready to serve your needs. You won’t have to worry about having enough space for your bags because our Citation III jet can fit up to eight full-sized luggage bags, with its overall cargo space measuring 60 cubic feet.

Luxury Interior

The Cessna Citation III has a modern sleek design and its passenger cabin was fully refurbished in 2019. Its two couches were fabricated with exquisite diamond pattern stitching, and behind them are four club seats, each with a double stitching pattern. The seats were designed according to the industry standards for passenger comfort on premium short to medium-haul flights. Two extra seats are mounted at the rear of the cabin for additional passengers or crew.

Comfort and Safety

Air travel is statistically the safest mode of transportation. The Cessna Citation III was created to enhance comfort while maximizing safety in the air. MERLIN1 flies the Citation III at 41,000 feet as higher altitudes offer better fuel economy and smoother flights. Fourteen windows around the cabin reflect bright natural light while cabin lights provide ambient lighting during the night. The Citation III is FAR Part 36 noise standards-certified which makes its operation very quiet and peaceful. Our Citation III jets are crewed by two highly experienced pilots.

Long Range and Impressive Speed

The Cessna Citation III has a range of 2,244 miles, and its cabin is pressurized as per the FAA standards of a commercial airliner. The Citation III has an impressive cruising speed of Mach 0.8 or 543 miles an hour. MERLIN1 optimizes the private air travel experience to exceed the expectations of guests who want to travel safely and efficiently.
