CityJet to become WX

As reported by BTN at the beginning of the year (BTN 6 January http://www.btnarchive.co.uk/article/7158) CityJet, the Air France Irish registered airline who centre of operations is London City Airport is moving even closer to being sold with confirmation said to be imminent. 

The new owners will be turnaround specialist Intro Aviation, founded by German businessman Hans Rudolf Wöhrl.  Intro has acquired and subsequently sold a number of airlines, including German charter carrier LTU and the former British Airways’ subsidiary Deutsche BA.

Whatever happens, from the start of the summer season CityJet becomes IATA code WX.  It has around 40% of the slots at LCY, a similar number to British Airways.

The current CityJet fleet consists of 19 Avro RJ85 and 18 Fokker 50.  www.cityjet.com  http://introaviation.org
