CityJet will be adding two more routes to its network this year, with flights launching from Cambridge International Airport in the UK to Dublin and Amsterdam.
Operated with 50-seat Fokker 50 aircraft, flights will start on 12 May and already available to book. Both routes will operate twice-daily during the week, and daily at weekends.
From Cambridge to Dublin, the weekday flights will depart at 09:10 and 17:15, with respective landing times of 10:35 and 18:40. The Saturday flight will be in the weekday morning slot, while the outbound on Sunday will use the early evening slot.
In the opposite direction flights will leave Dublin at 11:05 and 19:10, reaching Cambridge at 12:30 and 20:30 respectively. The Saturday flight will match the weekday morning flight and the Sunday flight will match the weekday evening service.
From Cambridge to Amsterdam, flights push back at 06:00 and 13:55, with respective arrival times of 08:05 and 16:00. The Saturday flight will be in the weekday morning slot, while the outbound on Sunday will use the afternoon slot. The return service will see flights depart at 08:35 and 16:40, reaching Cambridge at 08:40 and 16:45 respectively. The Saturday service will occupy the weekday morning timing, while the Sunday service will use the weekday afternoon timing.
Christine Ourmières, CityJet’s chief executive officer, commented, “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.”
On the Amsterdam route, the airline is taking over a route which Darwin Airline was operating before its re-brand as Etihad Regional.
