City Airline.

City Airline has targeted the market for leisure travel during the last year. A route to Nice has been
opened this spring, and the flights are already heavily booked for the coming period. The opening of
the route to Visby is an important part of the City Airline’s continued endeavour to become a major
player in the market for leisure travel.

“We have focussed intensely for many years on direct flights from Göteborg, and flown business
travellers to destinations both in Sweden and Europe. We shall continue to develop these routes, and
we will convince those who live in Göteborg to travel with us also when they are going on holiday.
Our strengths are that we fly directly to our destinations from Göteborg, and that we do it using our
flexible jet aircraft”, continues Jimmie Bergqvist.
