Stobart Air To Operate CityJet’s Cardiff Based Routes From 1 December 2014

CityJet and Stobart Air have signed a partnership agreement, both airlines announced today.

Commencing on 1 December 2014, Stobart Air will operate short-haul ATR regional aircraft on CityJet’s Cardiff to Edinburgh route – which is offered twice daily – and its Cardiff to Paris route, operating once a day.

Following market evaluation of numerous providers to operate its Cardiff routes, CityJet has chosen to work with Stobart Air based on its excellent reputation and value proposition. Stobart Air operates ATR 42 and ATR 72 aircraft, providing CityJet with a flexible offering to passengers flying out of Cardiff to Scotland and France. CityJet carries over one million passengers each year across its European network and thousands of passengers each month from Cardiff.

The new partnership is the third such deal for Stobart Air, with the airline now operating routes to and from Ireland, the UK, France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

Commenting on the partnership, CityJet CEO, Christine Ourmières said:

“I am delighted to announce this partnership between two Irish companies. CityJet shares many key values with Stobart Air, including providing customers with an exceptional travel experience, and we are looking forward to developing our offering with them into the future.”

“This partnership allows us to continue to work with our partners at Cardiff Airport to provide a quality service to passengers on key routes, connecting Wales with major European cities – Paris and Edinburgh.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Sean Brogan, Chairman, Stobart Air, said:

“Adding CityJet to our partner portfolio is a further positive development for Stobart Air. Our investment in new aircraft and the professionalism of our operations are resonating with passengers and partners alike.

“The routes we will operate for CityJet are strong, connecting the two capital cities of France and Scotland with the capital city of Wales. We look forward to commencing operations next Monday”, Mr Brogan said.
