CityJet has programmed a number of new routes and route closures ahead of the Air France-KLM regional subsidiary’s planned sale to German investor group Intro.
On 20 January, the Dublin-headquartered airline will begin operating flights from Cardiff. The first two routes – to Glasgow and Paris Orly – will be followed by additional services to Edinburgh and Jersey when the summer schedule starts on 30 March.
However, five routes from the Irish airline’s main hub at London City airport will be closed by the end of March. These comprise services to Dundee and Luxembourg and German routes to Nuremberg, Paderborn and Munster/Osnabruck.
Capacity from London City to Dublin, Florence, Paris, Rotterdam and Toulon will be expanded through increased flight frequencies and aircraft changes, says the airline.
Intro plans to acquire CityJet and its Belgian subsidiary VLM by March.
