Marshall's is close to agreeing with Eastern Airways the re-introduction of a three times daily service to Amsterdam.
Cambridge to Amsterdam flies again!
The proposed service - which can commence immediately after the Easter break - is dependent, however, upon demand from the business community.
The service will be run by Eastern Airways, which is based in Humberside and already serves Aberdeen, East Midlands, Manchester, Norwich and Teeside. Departures from Cambridge will be at 0705, 1300 and 1650 with the return legs from Amsterdam leaving at 0945, 1540 and 1930. On-line booking will be possible at http://www.easternairways.com
David Buckley for Marshall's told Cambridge Network: 'It is important that we get this right - to maintain this service it will have to be viable.' He also points out that planning permission for the new Airport Terminal in Cambridge will come up for discussion soon.
Dr Peter Hewkin for Cambridge Network says 'In our recent Voice of high-tech poll, Amsterdam came out as the second most popular destination to which our members wanted to fly from Cambridge. Now we have the opportunity to fly from our own doorstep, I strongly recommend that we use it!'
'The Cambridge Network is helping Marshall's to raise awareness of this service in the business community and to encourage commitment to use it.'
