Wet-lease deal for CityJet

Irish carrier Cityjet is to operate routes for Brussels Airlines beginning next April under a wet-lease agreement reached by the pair.

The Irish Times reported that under the terms of the deal, Brussels will sign up three Cityjet Sukhoi SS100 Superjets, which it acquired last year, and their crews to fly to a number of destinations, although It is not yet clear which routes are involved.

Talks between Cityjet and Brussels on a possible wet-leasing deal had been going on since late last year, according to the paper.

The Irish airline, led by executive chairman and founder Pat Byrne is said to be planning to grow its business by expanding its wet-leasing and contracting operations.

It already operates its own network, offering services connecting Ireland, Britain and western Europe, while Brussels is phasing out the use of 100-seater aircraft from its fleet and replacing them with Airbus A320s while planning to hire other carriers to operate routes best suited to the 100-seaters.
