CityJet, the airline that flies from the heart of London, has announced the launch of flights to Nuremberg in Germany. Starting on 27 January 2013, a scheduled service from London City Airport will operate up to twice a day and can be booked by clicking here

The new German route has been announced as the carrier prepares to begin flights to Münster-Osnabrück, its first German destination, on October 29th. The Nuremberg route will be served by an Avro RJ 85 aircraft. CityJet will be operating two flights a day Monday - Friday and a single flight the weekend.

The new route increases CityJet’s network to 20 European destinations across Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the UK.

Says Christine Ourmières, CEO, CityJet, “Nuremberg is a key business hub in Europe given its position as the capital of Germany’s industrial heartland.  It is the head office location for many of Germany’s multi-nationals such as Siemens, Puma and Adidas and it plays host to several international trade fairs.  Taking its business and leisure credentials together, it was a clear cut decision for CityJet to launch a new year-round service to Nuremberg, further extending our network into Germany, following the launch of Münster-Osnabrück this Monday 29th October.”
