As we have remarked before, British Airways has long earned itself the moniker “London Airways” for the fact that it does not fly internationally from any UK city other than London.
The one exception are routes operated by its franchise partner Sun Air which flies from Manchester to Billund and Gothenburg.
Another new route launched by Sun-Air is Cambridge to Gothernburg. We know Cambridge strictly isn’t London, but many airports have been flexible in this regard!
This route launches on 2 March 2015 and operates once a day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Until 23 May 2015 it operates at these times:
Flight BA8235 Depart Cambridge 07:00 – Arrive Gothenburg 10:00
Flight BA8236 Depart Gothenburg 18:00 – Arrive Cambridge 19:00
From 23 May 2015, it operates at these times:
Flight BA8235 Depart Cambridge 06:30 – Arrive Gothenburg 09:30
Flight BA8236 Depart Gothenburg 19:30 – Arrive Cambridge 20:30
The flight will be operated with a 32 seat Dornier commuter aircraft. According to BA’s trade website no lounge facilities are available at Cambridge.
Flights do not operate on Monday 6 April, 4 May, 25 May, and 31 August (these are all public holidays).
The aforementioned link also gives a clue as to why this service has launched. Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca has a research facility Mölndal in Gothenburg.
British Airways and SAS also fly to Gothenburg from London Heathrow. Norwegian also flies to Gothenburg from London Gatwick.
Postscript: This route has subsequently been suspended.
