London City airport-based Air France subsidiary CityJet will launch two new routes to Germany in April 2013.

Flights to Dresden airport will commence on 1 April while flights to Paderborn Lippstadt airport will follow on 22 April. Both services will be operated six times weekly.

With the addition of the new routes CityJet will serve a total of 22 European destinations. It already operates flights to the German cities of Munster and Nuremberg.

Chief executive Christine Ourmières comments: "There is a strong inbound demand for direct routes to the heart of London from Germany both from a business as well as a leisure perspective."

CityJet operates a mixed fleet of BAE Systems Avro RJ85s and Fokker 50s. Dresden will be served by the RJ85s and Paderborn by the Fokker 50s.
