Minoan Air announces Copenhagen-Oxford from January
Minoan Air, a Greek airline launched barely a year ago in September 2011 with a base in Heraklion, Crete, has announced plans to fly between Copenhagen and Oxford in the UK from January 2013. It says it will start five routes out of privately owned London Oxford Airport “that demonstrate satisfactory traffic potential”. The routes are to Munich, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin and Edinburgh, starting in January with a gradual introduction that will last two months. The airline’s objective is “to offer a premium service with no additional charges”. More routes are under examination.
Minoan Air says that the frequency and departure time for each route will be tailored to the requirements of business passengers. Ticket sales will be available online and from travel agencies by mid-November 2012. The company has a fleet of four Fokker 50s seating 50 passengers.
