CityJet announced today that it will be adding two more routes to its network this year, with flights launching from Cambridge International Airport to Dublin and Amsterdam.
Operated by a Fokker 50 aircraft, with a capacity of 50, flights will start on May 12 and will be bookable from today.
The route to Dublin will operate twice-daily during the week, and daily at weekends, priced from just £51 one way and £98 return.
The Amsterdam route will also operate twice-daily, during the week, and daily at weekends, priced from £68 one way and £147 return. All fares include 23kgs of hold luggage and complimentary snack and drink service.
Christine Ourmières, CityJet’s chief executive 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.
He said: “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.”
