Cambridge Airport takes off
Blue Islands aircraft first of new airline services to land at Cambridge Airport
Richard Benedikz - 14-May-2012
Cambridge Airport was set to welcome local passengers and international travellers this weekend, with the first of a new range of scheduled airline and holiday flights touching down as the airport embraces its role as gateway to the East of England.
The one-hour flight from Jersey landed at Cambridge on Saturday 12 May with passengers travelling aboard the first of a new regular Blue Islands flight - the major regional airline of the Channel Islands - operated in conjunction with tour operator CI Travel. The weekly direct return flights will operate every Saturday over the summer season, until 15 September 2012, by ATR42-500 turboprops. This is a resumption of flights to Jersey which have operated from Cambridge as long ago as the 1950’s.
As Cambridge Airport enters a new phase of development, there are plans to gradually expand its European short-haul operations with new routes to popular and niche destinations, including a new and unique scheduled route to Dole-Jura near Dijon in France starting on 2 July, providing access to the acclaimed wine-making regions of Franche-Comté and Burgundy.
