Darwin Airline has started its first services from Cambridge airport to four European destinations.
The Swiss-owned carrier is flying from Cambridge to Amsterdam, Paris, Geneva and Milan. Darwin has also agreed an interline deal with Etihad allowing passengers from Cambridge to connect through its Abu Dhabi hub.
Under the deal, passengers from Cambridge can check their luggage through to their final Etihad destination.
David Surley, head of business and route development at Cambridge airport, said: "This agreement gives Cambridge a new and truly worldwide reach, connecting on to Etihad Airways, one of the world’s most exciting and fast-growing carriers.”
Christian Schneider, Darwin’s chief commercial officer, added: “We are thrilled to be able to link Etihad’s long-haul flights to ours via all four European points serviced directly from Cambridge. “
Darwin announced in May that it would be starting services from Cambridge to the four European destinations.
