Specialist travel and cruise agency Fred. Olsen Travel is to open a new travel outlet at Cambridge International Airport.

Opening later this month within the airport’s newly-refurbished terminal, the new store will mark the first time the Ipswich-based Fred. Olsen Travel – which has seven high street stores across East Anglia – has used a local airport as its base.

This follows the move by European airline, CityJet to launch two new routes from Cambridge from May 1. In addition to taking over the Amsterdam route formerly operated by Etihad Regional, CityJet will also be introducing a new flight to Dublin, with each route offering onward connectivity to worldwide destinations.

Passengers can also take advantage of weekly flights to Verona and Jersey for a variety of cruise, luxury and summer holidays.

Fred. Olsen Travel’s managing director, Steve Williams, said: “We’re delighted to launch our first ever airport terminal outlet at Cambridge International Airport.

“Our decision was based on shared values; like the airport, we believe in offering our customers a first class experience, with professional, attentive staff, an excellent product and great value pricing. Plus, the airport location is ideal, just three miles outside the city of Cambridge, with easy access from all major road networks for all our customers across East Anglia.”

Cambridge International Airport’s head of business and route development, David Surley, said: “Fred. Olsen Travel is a highly respected travel and cruise agency, and hugely popular with our passengers, so we are thrilled to be hosting its newest outlet in our terminal. Passengers travelling through the airport will be able to book some fantastic packages from Cambridge in the comfort of our new lounge area, and with expert assistance.”
