Byrne rejoins CityJet

CityJet founder Pat Byrne is to rejoin the airline's board as chairman.

Mr Byrne founded the airline in 1993 and was chief executive for seven years until it was sold to Air France. He will replace Peter Oncken as chairman but Mr Oncken will remain on the board.

"I am delighted to return to CityJet at the most exciting time in its development," Mr Byrne said.

CityJet was sold by Air France-KLM to German firm Intro Aviation last year.

Intro bought Deutsche BA from British Airways for €1 in 2003.
