CityJet outlined its new summer network and schedule that starts on the 30th of March, 2014. With the launch of the new Summer network, CityJet is focusing on strengthening its core routes from London City Airport, with increased frequencies on key destinations, while opening a number of new routes from Cardiff Airport. The increased capacity to existing destinations will strengthen the CityJet current network, and will provide additional connections to passengers flying on partner network hubs. CityJet will redeploy capacity on its London City – Rotterdam route on key rotations by introducing the Avro RJ85 aircraft, instead of the venerable Fokker 50 turboprop.
Commenting on the new schedule, Simon Spinks, CityJet’s Chief Commercial Officer said, “We are working on a series of improvements to enhance the travel experience for our customers, and optimising our network is the first step. It is designed to offer passengers more choice and convenient schedules to choose from. We are confident that the changes to our summer schedule represent what our customers want and further will help to reinforce CityJet’s position as being the European regional airline of choice.”
CityJet is clearly also taking up the challenge from British Airways, that recently announced the start of flights between Rotterdam and London City.
