CityLine is beginning to retire its eighteen Avro RJ85s. The first to leave was RJ85 D-AVRL (msn E2285), who operated her last flight in early January. Thirteen of the airline’s eighteen RJ85s are on lease from BAE Systems, and will be returned between March and the end of 2011. The RJ85s are being replaced with Embraer 195s, the first of which was delivered in late September 2009.
