Joe Walsh Tours as the official tour operator for Leinster Rugby will be operating private charter flights with Cityjet to Heineken Cup and RaboDirect PRO12 competitions this season commencing 14th September with first game between Leinster and Benetton Treviso.
On 17th May Cityjet rolled out EI-RJX RJ85 c/n E2372 ex N536XJ in the colors of Leinster Rugby with the aircraft painted by Eirtech Aviation Ltd. The aircraft was offically unveiled at a function at Cityjet Hangar Dublin Airport on 18th May, the Bank of Ireland and Cityjet are the official partners of Leinster Rugby. Cityjet signed a 3 year contract to sponsor Leinster Rugby in September 2010.
The painting consists of a Basecoat containing the pigment, with a Clearcoat that is a clear varnish. This new technology paint provides weight saving, more longevity as well as a shiny ‘wet look.’ The paint is 75 microns thick (0.075mm) and has a total weight of 75 kg on the RJ85. This is approximately 30 kg lighter than previous technology, helping the aircraft to be more fuel efficient.
