CityJet check-in can be done online, with services opening 30 hours before a flight is scheduled to depart. This can be performed either by using a web browser (desktop or mobile), or on the company's iPhone app. Online check-in closes 1 hour before a flight's departure.
To complete the online check-in with CityJet, passengers will need to know their booking reference, flight number, departure airport and departure date. This service can also be used to pay for extra luggage, enter advanced passenger information (required on some flights – usually a passport number) and print boarding passes.
The CityJet airline operates two different aircraft models. The limits for hand baggage dimensions are different for each of these types of airlines. For the AVRO RJ85, cabin baggage may not exceed 55c x 35 x 25 cm, whilst the FOKKER-50 has a restriction on anything over 47.5 x 35 x 20 cm. Regardless which aircraft is being used for the flight, cabin baggage is limited to 12 kg in weight.
Each passenger is entitled to one piece of hand luggage and one small personal item such as a handbag or laptop case. If passengers exceed these allowances, they can be charged and may have their excess luggage stored as hold baggage.
Passengers on CityJet flights with either CityValue or CityFlex tickets are allowed 1 piece of checked baggage up to 23 kg in weight, whilst those with CityPremium tickets may check in 2 pieces of baggage each weighing up to 23 kg. Infants are allowed 1 piece of checked baggage weighing up to 10kg plus a pushchair. No single item of checked baggage may weigh more than 32 kg, otherwise CityJet will be forced to charge an excess baggage fee.
Sporting equipment is not considered part of a passengers checked baggage allowance, with the exception of golf clubs. Golf clubs are included under the normal allowance for number of pieces and weight. Wheelchairs and other mobility aids will be carried by the CityJet airline with no extra charge. Passengers needing special assistance should let the airline know in advance.
my first experience of city airport and this airline - problem from start to finish.
My Flight was delayed with no updates as to why or when it would take off. Other people waiting in my terminal over 8 hours only then yhen get told their flight was cancelled and then they fried to get on our plane. No reassurance that we would all be able to board.
Vueling was exactly as expected. City Jet was a 24 hour delay! Had to be transported to Pisa airport by bus. Then the airline provided accommodation and food. Though it was horrifically frustrating they did what they could. Many many hours were spent sitting on tarmac ... waiting in security again and again ... but city jet staff did what they could and remained kind and professional. Pisa airport staff were not nearly so helpful or understanding unfortunately.
first flight cancelled second flight cancelled 3 flight still not sure of the time had to take taxi to saint pancras and eurostart to paris never heard from flight company and never get refund (yet)
