About CityJet

CityJet is a European regional airline based in Dublin, Ireland operating a fleet of Avro RJ85, Bombardier CRJ700 & 900 aircraft on scheduled and wet lease services across Europe. In 2017, CityJet increased significantly its presence in Scandinavia, Northern Europe and the Baltics by expanding its network of supplying aircraft for other carriers -known as ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance or wet lease).

CityJet Executive Chairman Pat Byrne said: “We are proud to provide wet lease services to partner carriers such as SAS, Air France & Brussels Airlines and have an impressive record operating in this niche market. We now have over 40 aircraft with 1300 staff operating out of 10 bases across Europe.”
