CityJet CEO: ‘We have many things in common with Air Nostrum’

    CityJet CEO Pat Bryne commented on the carrier’s proposed merger with Air Nostrum, stating: “There are so many things we have in common with Air Nostrum, especially the fact that we both operate large fleets of Bombardier CRJ900 and CRJ1000 aircraft which we believe is a robust and economic platform and ideal for wet lease contracts” (Flying in Ireland/Irish Times, 17-Jul-2018). Mr Bryne added: “Together, we believe we will be in a position to respond to the specific needs of customer airlines through our flexibility in the provision of safe, dependable and quality assured operations”.
