Nordic service center maintains Citations
Scandinavian operators of Cessna’s Citation jets have access to a factory-approved service center in their own region, with the opening of a new facility by Swedish company European Maintenance Service (EMS). Trading as the Nordic Citation Service Center, the operation is located at Gothenburg’s Säve Airport and will provide support for the 500, 525, 550, 560, 560XL and 680 series Citations. The 32,300-sq-ft building can accommodate up to eight aircraft at a time. “The Nordic Citation Service Center is ideally situated, as Gothenburg lies at the heart of Scandinavia,” said EMS managing director Stephen Diapère. “Not only are we very conveniently located for warranty maintenance customers in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, but we also offer a new resource for aircraft in Iceland, northern Germany, Russia and the Baltic states.” EMS, which has been working on Citations since the early 1990s, will now provide 24/7 aircraft-on-ground support, as well as comprehensive assistance for visiting flight crew. There are now more than 60 Citations based in the Scandinavian region.
