CityJet 'optimistic' moving into summer 2021: CEO
CityJet CEO and executive chairman Patrick Byrne, speaking at CAPA Live January 2021, said (13-Jan-2021) the company is "optimistic" in its outlook moving into summer 2021. He continued: "We're looking to forward to early summer with an uplift by then", depending on vaccine rollout and seasonal change. Mr Byrne also noted CityJet is "confident" in its Bombardier CRJ900 fleet. He explained this gauge is "going to be the one that will be most in demand soonest" due to low traffic loads, a "critical eye" on trip cost and the desire for airlines to retain slots and market share. "We think that we'll be in a very strong position to provide the capacity needed", Mr Byrne concluded.
