CityJet is a European regional airline based in Dublin, Ireland operating a fleet of Avro, Bombardier and  Superjet aircraft on scheduled and wet lease services across Europe.

The airline was established in 1993 by Pat Byrne, and pioneered services between Dublin and London City Airport in  January 1994 under a franchise agreement with Virgin Atlantic Airways.

CityJet formed a partnership with Air France in 1996, which eventually transferred  into Air France  ownership in  2000 and the majority of CityJet services being operated under the Air France brand.  CityJet continued to develop  it's role as a key airline in the London City market in addition to growing it's network connecting  European cities to  the Air France hub in Paris. During this time  CityJet also acquired VLM,  a Belgian airline which also specialised in  London City services.

Air France sold CityJet to a German company, Intro Aviation in 2014.  The airline was subsequently  purchased by a   business consortium led by its original founder, Pat Byrne, and has embarked on a major programme of expansion  and strategic development. 

In the first of a number of major steps, the airline re-branded in 2015 to a new livery, which reflected the  newly-independent company’s spirit. 

CityJet secured a new wet lease contract, under which it provides aircraft and crew to SAS (Scandinavian Airlines)  in October 2015, and today has eight new Bombardier CRJ900 jets operating in the Nordic region on behalf of SAS,  with four more to follow in 2017.  As part of this project, CityJet purchased Finnish airline Blue1, whose staff now  form the nucleus of its Nordic operation. 

CityJet has also commenced the replacement of its Avro RJ85 fleet with the order of 15 Superjet SSJ100 98-seat jets  in October 2015, the first two of which were delivered in summer 2016 with further following from October 2016  onwards.

In March 2016 we opened our new Customer Contact Centre at our headquarters in Swords, Co Dublin, replacing a  previously outsourced facility in Mauritius.  Having the contact centre in house ensures our customers are dealt with  by our dedicated CityJet staff and enjoy our unrivaled service and attention to detail. 

Today, CityJet operates a fleet of 44 aircraft on our own-brand scheduled services and on wet lease services on  behalf of Air France, SAS, Brussels Airlines and KLM. In addition, we operate many ad hoc charter flights for private  customers, including many from the sports and entertainment industries, as well as charter series on behalf of tour  operators to tourism destinations.

CityJet is the Official Airline Partner of the Football Association of Ireland, Leinster Rugby and the ExCeL London. A cross everything we do, our focus on excellence is paramount. We aim to be the best, with the best people to d eliver this. We are truly a pan-European airline, and currently have staff based in Ireland, the UK, France, A msterdam, Brussels and the Nordic Region and will soon open a new base in Tallinn.  Last year our Head Office in  Dublin was transformed to an open plan layout, with our Customer Contact Centre at the heart, reflecting the open  culture of the company, with the customer at the centre.
