DanubeWings’ Dole-Jura to Cambridge
Cambridge Airport celebrated its new route from the British university city to the French wine region surrounding Dole-Jura with a cake. Welcoming DanubeWings were Cambridge Airport’s Archie Garden, Airport Director; Vlasta Pizarro, Route Development; Terry Holloway, Deputy Chairman; and David Surley, Head of Business & Route Development.
- On Friday 27 July, the Slovakian regional carrier DanubeWings launched scheduled flights between Dole-Jura (DLE) in eastern France and the famous university city Cambridge (CBG) in the UK using an ATR 72. Flights operate twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays. Terry Holloway, Deputy Chairman of Cambridge Airport said: “We were delighted to welcome DanubeWings to Cambridge Airport, connecting Cambridge with Dole-Jura in the Franche-Comté Region of France with two scheduled flights each week. This is also an exciting development with one of Europe’s rapidly expanding airline companies and part of our wider plan to bring a number of exciting international services to Cambridge. We are committed to delivering sustained growth at the airport and contributing to Cambridge’s dynamic economic expansion, which is already far exceeding that of most areas of the UK.” In recent years, Dole-Jura Airport has handled less than 5,000 passengers per annum, but back in April, Ryanair started twice-weekly services to Porto from the airport, while DanubeWings launched flights to Girona and Nice in May, and Bastia in June.
