Cambridge Airport has announced the launch of Danube Wings’ first UK scheduled services to the Franche-Comté region in France.

The flights operate on Mondays and Fridays from and to Dole-Jura Airport and the carrier has introduced a unique wine allowance of four bottles per person, in addition to checked-in baggage allowance of 15kg and 5kg hand luggage for passengers flying on the route.

David Surley, the airport's head of business development, said: “I am delighted to welcome Danube Wings to Cambridge Airport. This is a groundbreaking development with one of Europe’s rapidly developing airline companies and to such a beautiful and largely undiscovered region of France. We couldn’t be happier with Dole-Jura as our next destination. It’s the first of a number of exciting international services we plan to bring to Cambridge."

Located three miles from the centre of Cambridge, the airport offers direct access from London by rail in 45-minutes.

The carrier's seats are now on sale, with special offer fares from £65 one-way when booked online. Packages can be booked through Premier Travel, which offers Dijon city-breaks, self-drive holidays through Jura and Burgundy wine tours.
