The new routes follow the success of the service from Cambridge to Gothenburg, which launched in February this year. They allow passengers from Cambridge to make use rapid connection services at Gothenburg and take convenient onward flights to Stockholm’s downtown Bromma Airport and Helsinki’s main Vantaa International Airport.
Flights depart Cambridge daily four times a week from Monday to Thursday at 7am and, via an en-route transfer, arrive into Stockholm Bromma around lunchtime, or early afternoon at Helsinki.
Return flights depart Helsinki and Stockholm at approximately 4pm, include a short transfer en-route, and arrive in Cambridge at 7pm local time.
David Surley, head of business and route development at Cambridge International Airport, said: "Flight links to Stockholm’s downtown Bromma Airport take you right to the heart of the Swedish capital, saving valuable time and avoiding lengthy road journeys, while the link to Helsinki is particularly significant – the only connection from the East England region, shaving hours off the alternative journey time using Gatwick or Heathrow airports.
"The fact these connections are daily from Monday to Thursday, with short and easy transfers at Gothenburg, is super convenient for Cambridge customers on both business and leisure alike."
