CityLink VA Expands Fleet

CityLink Virtual Airlines is an airline based in the Netherlands. We have 2 hubs; 1 in Maastricht (EHBK) and 1 in Rotterdam (EHRD). We’re also planning a new hub… Well, let’s get to the point. We have added the Fokker 50 to our fleet, after that we created new routes for it, and now we’re looking for pilots to fly. Of course we have other planes as well. For example, we also use the Cessna 208B, Twinotter (DHC6-400), Pilatus PC12 and the Beech King Air B200. CityLink always has a freeware alternative, which the Dash 8-q300 instead of the Fokker 50.
