It really is a ground-breaking initiative and we are thrilled to bring our service and experience to Cambridge”.David Surley, head of business & route development at Cambridge International Airport, welcomed the first Gothenburg departure. “This is quite a big thing for Cambridge, with one of Scandinavia’s leading regional airlines – flying in the British Airways brand – opening direct scheduled service to one of the most important international markets for the region,” he remarked. “This simply doesn’t happen every day and we are truly thrilled to welcome Sun-Air and their fantastic regional jets to our city.”
