New link designed for scientists working for AstraZeneca
A new air connection between Sweden’s second city and Cambridge in the UK will take off next Monday. The idea is to improve travel for employees, many of them scientists, working for Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca in both locations.
Scandinavian airline Sun Air on behalf of British Airways will operate the route between the two research hubs from March 2. AstraZeneca is booking seats on each flight.
“We’ve worked closely with Cambridge – its major businesses and the airport – to bring this niche and valuable market opportunity to life”, said Kristian Tvergaard, Sun Air’s commercial director. “We very much look forward to establishing ourselves in Cambridge, the east of England and servicing valuable business customers in both Sweden and the UK with our excellent in-flight hospitality”.
Around 1,000 AstraZeneca staff are based in Cambridge, with a further 1,500 expected to be based there when work is completed on its new global R&D centre and corporate headquarters in 2016.
