Celebrating the arrival of the first CityJet flight from London City in Münster/Osnabrück were Warner Rootliep, Air France-KLM Germany’s Director; Ben Schaafsma, CityJet’s Head of Marketing and Communications; and Gerd Stoewer, CEO Münster/Osnabrück Airport.
- Air France began serving its first German destination from London City (LCY) on 29 October, as its subsidiary CityJet launched six weekly flights to Münster/Osnabrück (FMO) in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Andre Cini, CityJet’s CCO, commented: “The new service has had good forward bookings and better than our previous launches. There is huge opportunity in Germany as it is a big business and convention destination and more cities could be served from London City.” All flights are operated using the airline’s fleet of F50s. None of London’s airports have been linked directly to Münster/Osnabrück since airberlin pulled its London Stansted service in October 2011.
