WELCOME

A

pril is the month when we realise

summer is almost upon us. Gardens

come back into focus, the winter

woolies get put away once again and

we look forward to a few months of improved

weather to allow us all to pursue outdoor activities

on hold since last year. e “spring clean” is in full

swing!

Like every business, CityJet continues to redefine

its strategy and focus, and this summer sees many

changes from previous years. We are now firmly

established as one of the top providers of wet-lease

services to major European airlines, with over 80

per cent of our fleet now flying on behalf of other

airlines. All are crewed by CityJet staff from our

bases around Europe, delivering a high-quality and

reliable service to both the customer airline and

their passengers on board. is part of our business

continues to flourish and is an area in which we see

tremendous growth prospects for CityJet into the

future.

But it is not just our wet-lease services which are

seeing change. We have undertaken a significant

review of our scheduled business through the

winter, and you may notice changes to the route

map in this month’s edition of

Velocity

as we begin

the process of redeveloping our network in parallel

with our progressive fleet change. is summer is a

transition stage where we will have a lower number

of scheduled routes than before as we finalise our

plans for growth on our new aircraft. As they say,

“watch this space” for some exciting news from

CityJet in the coming months.

Last month, we partnered with the Dublin

Tech Summit, an event which brought together

leaders from across the digital sphere for a major

conference in the city’s docklands. ere is no

doubt this industry is full of business confidence,

and seeing some of the new companies and

individuals behind the growth of this sector

was refreshing. It is really interesting to see how

small ideas, many of which seem so obvious in

hindsight, can spawn huge companies in the

technology industry and I have no doubt some of

the businesses on show at this event will have huge

global success in the future.

We were also proud to facilitate the Orbis Flying

Eye Hospital on its visit to Dublin in March. is

amazing MD-10 aircraft truly changes lives as it

visits areas across the world, providing teaching to

eye specialists and treating patients in its on-board

hospital. See our news section for full details.
