Irish airline CityJet has announced that it would be relying more heavily on Air France for its sales and marketing. Air France took a 25% equity stake in CityJet earlier this year, and much of CityJet’s flying is on Air France’s behalf. At London City, ground operations will be taken over by Jersey European, who also fly on Air France’s behalf. CityJet chief executive Pat Byrne stated that six additional aircraft will join the airline’s fleet over the next 18 months. Separately, Aer Lingus is thought likely to introduce services from Dublin to London City on competition with CityJet beginning this autumn.
