More ‘new’ Avro RJ85s delivered to CityJet

CityJet RJ85 EI-RJZ

CityJet’s newest RJ85 lands at Dublin (Ciaran Martin)

Irish Avro RJ operator CityJet has been adding more former Mesaba Avro RJ85s to its 23-strong fleet. On 3 October, it took delivery of EI-WXA (msn E2310 ex N503XJ) on lease from South Africa’s Safair. Then on 22 November it took delivery of EI-RJZ (msn E2326 ex N512XJ), which it has acquired from lessor Tronos. Both were prepared for service and painted in CityJet colors at Norwich. One more RJ85 is due from each source: EI-WXB (msn E2311 ex N504XJ) from Safair and EI-RJY (msn E2307 ex N502XJ) from Tronos. Both are currently at Norwich being prepared for service.
