Cambridge airport is encouraged by the opening performance of the Swiss-owned Darwin Airline operations which launched last month.
“Darwin is now offering onward connections from its flights to Amsterdam, Paris, Geneva and Milan,” says Cambridge Airport managing director Steve Jones.
With its university connections Cambridge is also an important destination. AstraZeneca, the world’s fifth largest bio-pharmaceutial company is building its global headquarters in the city’s globally-renowned bio-medical campus.
“It cuts significant time from travelling via Heathrow,”Jones says. “The first month of Darwin operating from Cambridge has shown very promising numbers.”
