British Airways considers transferring routes to CityFlyer

In a move to cut costs, British Airways is considering transferring some of its short-haul routes from London Gatwick to subsidiary CityFlyer. Should the transfer take place, an order for twelve additional Avro RJs is being considered to supplement the seven RJ100s (with three more on order) and ATR turboprops CityFlyer currently operates. The RJX is also being considered, but any order would have to include some of the current RJ model since the RJX will not be available before mid 2001.
