Inaugural Flight Takes Off From London City Airport to Munster-Osnabruck

30/10/2012
European airline CityJet has launched its first route into Germany from London City Airport [LCY].
 
The inaugural flight departed from LCY to Münster-Osnabrück on Monday [29 October].  The new service will offer daily flights to the northern city of Münster, which is the sustainable energy and green capital of Germany, home to the University of Münster and neighbour to the university cities of Osnabrück and Dortmund.
 
Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport said:  “We are delighted that CityJet has chosen to launch its first route into Germany from LCY and in doing so has added to the choice available to our regular travellers, as well as the new passengers that this route will attract.”
 
The new route increases CityJet’s network to 19 European destinations across Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the UK.
 
Christine Ourmières, CEO of CityJet said: “Münster is at the forefront of hosting conferences and events for the green technologies industry.  By starting services to Münster, CityJet is expanding its appeal to the UK MICE industry as well as facilitating a new trade corridor for the rapidly expanding British green technologies and renewable energies market. 
 
“There is also strong inbound demand for a direct route to the heart of London from Münster given the large number of SMEs based in the airport’s catchment area. In addition, our new route will open up the cultural and historic heart of the Westphalia region of Germany to families and couples looking for a relaxed weekend break.”
