Edinburgh and Dundee join CityJet for Air France network from London City Airport

Air France is pleased to announce that Edinburgh and Dundee will now fully join the “CityJet for Air France” network, operating out of London City Airport.

“CityJet for Air France”, is an exclusive product offering a city to city network from the heart of London to seven destinations: Belfast, Dublin, Geneva, Madrid, Nice, Paris-Orly, and Zurich to which Edinburgh and Dundee will now be added.

With effect from Monday 3 September 2007, CityJet for Air France flights, in partnership with ScotAirways and departing from London City to Edinburgh (seven times daily) and Dundee (four times daily), will have an “AF” flight code.

This means that passengers travelling to or from Edinburgh or Dundee will now have the opportunity to join the AIR FRANCE KLM loyalty programme Flying Blue. Furthermore passengers flying into London City Airport can make onward connections to destinations such as Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Nice and Madrid.

“This is a great opportunity for passengers travelling from Edinburgh, Dundee and London City Airport,” said Christine Ourmières, General Manager AIR FRANCE KLM, UK & Ireland. “CityJet for Air France is now offering an even better schedule, a top class frequent-flyer programme, and great onward connection opportunities on these important routes, and we’re confident our service will be popular.”

“We’re very happy to be expanding our CityJet for Air France network,” said Geoffrey O’Byrne White, CEO of CityJet. “As an Irish airline we feel a natural affinity with Scotland, and we already connect Edinburgh with Paris, so we are delighted to be adding to our Scottish network."

Passengers can continue to book as usual with Scot Airways until late August.  Passengers who book with Scot Airways for travel from 3 September, or who have already booked for travel from that date, will automatically be rebooked under the new AF flight number.
All flight departure and arrival times will be unchanged.
