Lufthansa: City Airlines still on hold

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The youngest Lufthansa offshoot City Airlines took over the first machine, but has not yet started flight operations. It could stay that way for some time.

According to a report in the Handelsblatt, the start-up is said to be suffering from an acute shortage of pilots and aircraft. This has meant that the original schedule can no longer be met. With the D-AILX, the first Airbus A319 was recently registered on the new AOC, but there is still no specific date for the first commercial flight of the Cityline clone.
