CITYJET OPENS DIRECT TRANSFER FACILITY AT LONDON CITY
Thursday 24th February 2011.
CityJet, the airline flying from the heart of London, has introduced a Direct Transfer Facility at its London City Airport hub. The new initiative is in response to the increasing number of CityJet customers connecting via London City to destinations across its expanding European network. The Direct Transfer Facility announcement coincides with the launch of new CityJet routes to Florence, Avignon and Toulon. In addition, CityJet has recently re-introduced its seasonal routes to the popular destinations of Deauville, (Normandy) and Brive, (Dordogne) for the 2011 summer season.
Passengers with onward connections at London City can proceed straight to the new CityJet Transfer Desk located just next to UK Border Control at London City Airport. Passengers will then be quickly escorted through border control and security before being taken directly to the departure lounge or appropriate gate for their next flight.
Passengers with connecting flights also have the convenience of checking their baggage in directly to their final destination from their departure airport.
‘Customers who have already experienced the new CityJet Transfer Facility have been really impressed; commenting on its speed and efficiency. With a mere 30-minute transfer time, CityJet can truly say we offer our passengers one of the most seamless and efficient connecting procedures – allowing them to maximise the use of their time’ said the CEO of CityJet, Christine Ourmières.
Richard Gooding CEO of London City said “This is good news for travellers, providing an extra service, helping to support CityJet’s introduction of new routes at London City”.
