CityJet traffic up 50% on its Dublin to London route

Airline said it flew almost 23,000 on the route last month

CityJet said it recorded its busiest month on the Dublin to London City airport route last month.

The airline, which has its headquarters in Dublin, said it flew almost 23,000 passengers on the route in May, higher than any month in CityJet’s 22-year history.

The carrier said it was now carrying 50 per cent more passengers on the route than in May 2014.

“The route has always been popular with business travellers, but in the last six months we have noted a significant increase in leisure travel as people on city breaks clearly appreciate the value offered by Cityjet and the convenience of flying into an airport that is less than 25 minutes away from London’s major sightseeing and landmark attractions,” said the carrier’s chief commercial officer Cathal O’Connell.
