Cambridge goes to Europe

Last Monday Darwin Airline opened a base at Cambridge Airport operating 50 flights per week to and from Amsterdam, Paris, Milan and Geneva.  It is the first time that Cambridge Airport has offered scheduled services for some years, and is an ambitious programme.  It is a major executive jet airport and the home of Marshall Aerospace.

The airline has signed an interline agreement with Etihad Airways who fly into all these hubs from Abu Dhabi giving connections to Australia, Asia and Africa.  Baggage can be checked-in at Cambridge all the way through to their final Etihad Airways ticketed destination.

Christian Schneider, Chief Commercial Officer, Darwin Airline, noted: "Etihad Airways is a fantastic airline and we are thrilled to be able to link its long haul flights to ours via all four European points serviced directly from Cambridge.

"It is really something very special for the long haul traveller, offering excellent choice, every day of the week.  You can fly out via Amsterdam, back via Paris, or whichever connection works best.  Cambridge to Abu Dhabi takes from just eight hours and Cambridge to the Maldives from approximately 14 and a half hours, which is very competitive".

The carrier has a fleet of 50-seat Saab 2000 turboprop regional aircraft.  www.darwinairline.com www.cambridgeairport.com
