CityJet adds more BAe 146s


Irish Airline CityJet is expanding its already sizeable BAe 146 fleet by leasing three additional series 200s from BAE Systems. The leases were arranged with the assistance of Mike Ryan of Vikingar, a specialist who advises in buying and selling the BAe 146. The first of the three former Malmö Aviation 146s has already been delivered. The second is due in mid-April, and the third in early May. In addition, CityJet has been leasing a series 200 from Flightline since late January. Once all three ex-Malmö aircraft have been delivered, CityJet will have a twelve-strong 146 fleet, although its series 100 is out of service for repairs and is unlikely to return to service before being returned to BAE Systems at the end of its lease. All are operated on behalf of Air France, in the French airline’s colors.
