London City Airport (LCY) has welcomed the start of services from Cork by Cityjet. The airline is operating 18 flights a week, including one on Saturdays and two on Sundays.
Pat Byrne, Executive Chairman of CityJet, said the airline was "confident and excited" about the new route, with early bookings indicating passengers saw "real value" in flying into an accessible airport with fast turnround times and good transport links in London.
Mr Byrne said: "This launch emphasises the progress we have made in building passenger numbers and expanding our services across Europe. We see great potential in delivering access to London’s most accessible airport for the people of Cork and Munster in general.”
Darren Grover, Chief Operating Officer at LCY, was on hand as the first flight of the new service arrived to greet Patrick Lukan, Vice President of Sales and Distribution for Cityjet, along with the route’s first passengers.
"Ireland is a very important market for LCY," Grover said. "Dublin is one of our top three routes, accounting for more than 10% of our total passenger numbers so far this year, and we look forward to welcoming many more passengers travelling between LCY and Cork over the coming weeks and months." www.londoncityairport.com www.cityjet.com
