Useful advice & information about CityJet
Founded in 1993, this Irish airline made its first big break when it partnered with Air France in 1996, but this relationship was not to last long. The airline returned to a consortium of investors led by its original Pat Byrne. Since that time, CityJet has evolved to become one of the leading wet lease service providers in the aviation industry today.
CityJet also performs cruises for other brands: SAS, Air France, KLM and Brussels Airlines, flying to major European cities including Dublin, London, Amsterdam, Manchester, Newcastle, and Florence.
On the punctuality scale, CityJet has not done badly. The airline has continued to maintain a fair position in spite of overwhelming challenges in the industry.
