In recent years CityJet has transitioned from being an airline serving scheduled markets under its own brand to becoming a provider of capacity to customer airlines throughout Europe. Today CityJet announced that effective from October 27th it will no longer operate scheduled services marketed under its own brand.

Also announced today was a leasing arrangement between Aer Lingus and CityJet that will see CityJet provide two aircraft to Aer Lingus to operate the Dublin-London City route.  Commencing 28th October, Aer Lingus will operate six daily round trips from Dublin to London City Airport on weekdays, with a reduced service at the weekend.

Intending passengers holding bookings to/from London City on CityJet flights will be transferred to Aer Lingus flights.
