CityJet has announced plans to open a new call centre in Dublin next year, which will initially create 15 new jobs.

Unveiling its new branding today, CityJet said it represents a further step forward as an independent airline and comes at an exciting time of change for the airline.

CityJet now employs almost 500 staff, with over 300 based at its headquarters in Swords in Co Dublin, and additional crew bases in London and Paris. 

In the past three months it has hired almost 60 additional staff, including 24 new pilots and 30 cabin crew and four executive officers. 

CityJet will in the coming months roll out its new brand and livery on all its aircraft and it will shortly also unveil its new aircrew and ground staff uniforms. 

The airline is also launching new on board catering as part of an overall upgrading of its product.
