BA CityFlyer to lease two Avro RJ85s

BA CityFlyer has signed long-term leases with BAE Systems Regional Aircraft for two Avro RJ85s. The two former Blue1 aircraft (OH-SAH msn E2383 and OH-SAI E2385) will be delivered to BA CityFlyer in Spring 2008, joining the airline’s ten-strong fleet of RJ100s. The smaller RJ85s will allow longer routes to be served from London City without the weight penalties that sometimes affect the larger RJ100s. BA CityFlyer currently operates 250 flights a week from London City.
