CityJet has announced it'll stop running flights from Cambridge Airport in October, just four months after starting them up.
The airline began services to Dublin and Amsterdam in May, but says they're being cut due to shifting customer demand.
CityJet say they've contacted customers affected.
In a statement the airline said:
“Working closely with Cambridge International Airport, we have taken the decision to discontinue CityJet routes from Cambridge based on shifting customer demand and scheduling changes for the 2014/2015 winter season. As an independent airline, CityJet provides fast, point to point service to a variety of European cities and we will continue operations to these destinations, serving our customers with no-fuss, speedy service that they expect. Our status as an independent airline and our strong long-standing relationship with the Cambridge International Airport has provided us the ability to develop new routes and expand our offering and we were pleased to have the opportunity to do this for customers from Cambridge. CityJet and Cambridge International Airport have developed a strong working relationship and will continue to explore potential opportunities for future routes.”
