From 2 March, Sun-Air will begin operating – on behalf of British Airways – daily flights from Monday to Thursday between Cambridge International Airport and Landvetter International Airport in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Flight BA8235 will depart Cambridge at 07:00 each morning and arrive in Gothenburg at 10:00, while flight BA8236 from Gothenburg will depart at 18:00 each evening, arriving in Cambridge at 19:00 (all times local). The route will be operated on 32-seat Dornier 328JETs.
As well as being a new option for leisure travellers, the route will connect staff from AstraZeneca, an Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical company, travelling between its new global headquarters in Cambridge and European hub in Gothenburg.
Other synergies between Cambridge and Gothenburg include being home to substantial businesses in the life science and medical research, bio-pharmaceutical, IT, automotive and technology sectors, as well as fashion and further education.
“We’ve worked closely with Cambridge – its major businesses and the airport – to bring this niche but valuable market opportunity to life”, remarked Kristian Tvergaard, commercial director at Sun-Air. “We very much look forward to establishing ourselves in Cambridge, the East of England and servicing valuable business customers in both Sweden and the UK with our excellent in-flight hospitality.”
