Glad to see that airlines are still trying to make CBG work. Certainly benefits my spotting. Do you know when the routes start?

Quoting factsonly (Thread starter):

Given it will probably have a KL code to AMS and an AF one to DUB, therefore offering connection opportunities to the US from DUB, and East from AMS - this may well work out!

Did the precious flights to AMS, CDG, MXP and GVA stop?? When and why? Apologies if I missed something here!

Damn, that would mean we could land 20 minutes from the in-laws instead of hiking up from LHR. I'd fly via AMS to make that happen!

Darwin halted all operations from CBG on 30 March 2014, and closed CDG and MXP earlier this last winter season.

Bugger. I booked a flight to DUB not two days ago on EI ex BHX on June the 9th. It means a 5:30am start from Cambridge to make the flight. Had I known this was going to happen I'd have paid the extra £100 and flown from CBG!

I wish them luck. Perhaps being a better known name might translate to some success?
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.
