America from Oxford Airport

For the first time ever Oxford Airport is to host quasi-scheduled flights to Dublin and is marketing a connection to New York.  The airport has an ideal position just a few minutes’ drive from the M40 and well located for the whole of the Cotswolds.  Parking is very simple and the terminal is that normally only used for executive flights.

Passengers can select to spend a five-day trip in the Emerald Isle’s capital city, or choose to fly onwards to New York and enjoy shopping for Christmas in the Big Apple.  These exclusive one-off trips will depart on Wednesday 7 December returning on Monday 12 December.  The special packages have been organized by local Oxford tour operator World of Experience Tours which has teamed up with CityJet and Aer Lingus to provide the groundbreaking new service.

The Oxford to Dublin sectors will be flown by fast and comfortable 95-passenger Avro RJ85 regional jet of Air France carrier, Cityjet.  US-bound passengers will enjoy a hassle-free transit at Dublin’s brand new state-of-the-art Terminal 2, before boarding a wide-bodied Aer Lingus flight for the onward journey to New York’s JFK International Airport.  Five-night packages start from £999 per person. www.oxfordairporttravel.co.uk
