Hard on the heels of its latest deal with SAS (see this issue), CityJet has announced it will increase its schedule for 2017 and operate additional flights on its service from London City Airport to Toulon Hyères Airport between 8 April and 26 October.
The airline will fly three times weekly return on the London to Toulon Côte d’Azur route: Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday. CityJet will operate the flights on 95-seat Avro RJ85 aircraft and provide passengers with complimentary checked luggage and complimentary drinks and snacks on board.
Chief commercial officer Cathal O’Connell, said: “We are delighted to offer again scheduled direct flights this summer from the heart of London to Toulon Côte d’Azur.
“We are pleased to team up with Toulon Airport in providing this important summer schedule and look forward to welcoming everyone on board.
In other expansion, CityJet is planning to open a crew base at Brussels National Airport this year with an undisclosed number of SSJ 100-95s to be headquartered there. The airline also has bases at Amsterdam, Dublin, Helsinki, Paris and Stockholm.
It currently operates three Superjets on lease from Moscow-based VEB Leasing and is reported to be adding three more during the first half of this year and a further two during the second half.
