CityJet has marked its new-found independence by adopting a new color scheme on its Avro RJ85s. The new colors were presented at a ceremony at Dublin Airport on 4 September. RJ85 EI-RJT (msn E2366) was the first to be repainted in the new colors. She had been scheduled to be repainted by Eirtech Aviation at Dublin airport, and was on their hangar when a fire broke out on its roof in the early morning of 26 August. The RJ85 was not damaged, and was later flown to Eirtech’s facility at Roma Fiumicino for repainting. She returned to Dublin on 4 September.
