Flying Leinster Team and Fans to Cardiff for the Match

CityJet, as the official airline and proud sponsor of the Leinster rugby team, will be flying both the team as well as fans on special charter flights to Cardiff for the Heineken Cup match on the 21st of May.

CityJet, the regional airline of choice in Europe, with headquarters in Dublin, is proud to be carrying the former Heineken Cup champions on their path to reclaiming their trophy. As a premier charter carrier in addition to a network spanning 17 destinations in Europe, CityJet is able to offer special flights to Cardiff for fans attending the game from Dublin. 

In honour of this special event, CityJet has decorated their Avro RJ 85 planes with the Leinster decal, as well as having special Leinster seat headrests that passengers can keep as a memento.

The special charter flights will be operated by the Avro RJ85 jet, with a capacity of 95 seats in comfortable leather, with a pitch of 32 inches and a 3-3 configuration and will offer CityJet’s award winning service, including free check-in, seat choice, complimentary food and beverage service as well as baggage. So passengers can relax and celebrate both to and from the match.  

‘The CityJet team is very excited and honoured being the only ones to carry the Leinster team to the Heineken Cup, but also being able  to provide service to Cardiff for the many fans attending the game. Our dynamic Irish airline is offering passengers the service they both demand and deserve. I wish the Leinster team the best of luck for their upcoming match and hope that we’ll be able to greet them as champions on their return to Dublin,” said the CEO of CityJet, Christine Ourmières.
