CityFlyer returns for another Avro RJ100

London Gatwick-based CityFlyer has placed its third repeat order for Avro RJ100s, by signing an agreement for an additional aircraft. When it is delivered in Spring 2000, this latest aircraft will bring CityFlyer’s RJ100 fleet to eight. CityFlyer currently operates five RJ100s on British Airways franchise routes, with two more aircraft scheduled for delivery in July and August. The airline also has an option on a ninth RJ100, which it seems likely to take up as it progressively replaces smaller turboprops. This latest order brings sales of the Avro RJ to 154 aircraft.
