Operated by a Fokker 50 aircraft, with a capacity of 50, flights will start on 12th May and will be bookable from today, (28th April). The route to Dublin will operate twice-daily during the week, and daily at weekends.
The Amsterdam route will also operate twice-daily, during the week, and daily at weekends. All fares include 23kgs of hold luggage and complimentary snack and drink service.
Commenting on the new routes, Christine Ourmières, CityJet’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We decided to launch new routes from Cambridge as we saw a unique opportunity for success, particularly with our strong presence in both Dublin and London already. We know that the market has the demand on the route and we know that we can provide vital access to these communities. Cambridge fits our model of service and regional airports as well, serving those communities for both business and leisure.”
Steve Jones, Managing Director at Cambridge International Airport, welcomed CityJet’s confirmation of the new services, “We’re delighted to be working with such a dynamic and established international airline to welcome these important route openings to thriving European capitals – Amsterdam and Dublin.
“CityJet is an award-winning carrier with around 700 flights a week to popular destinations across Europe, and, just like us, they are focused on quality of customer service, reliability and hassle-free travel. Its close and lasting partnership arrangements with KLM, Air France, Delta Air Lines and other partners will give Cambridge its greatest ever worldwide reach and offer travellers in this region significantly more choice and convenience with regards to both long and short haul travel connectivity, via Amsterdam, and now also via Dublin’s impressive and hassle-free US Border Control clearance facility. We couldn’t be happier to welcome CityJet to Cambridge and the East.”
CityJet already launched four new routes out of Cardiff Airport this year, with routes to Paris-Orly and Glasgow starting in January, followed by the Edinburgh route which launched on 30 March and Jersey on 17 April.
