Minoan Air Launches Flights from Oxford

New flights from Oxford Airport to Edinburgh and Dublin have been launched by start-up carrier Minoan Air.

The Crete-based airline started flights between Oxford and Edinburgh on March 4 2013 and between Oxford and Dublin on March 6. The Edinburgh service operates twice-daily on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the Dublin service is twice-daily on Wednesdays and Fridays and once on Sundays.

Frequency on both routes will increase from May 10 to twice daily (Monday to Friday) and once on Sundays. The routes will be flown by Minoan Air’s Fokker 50 aircraft, featuring a full in-flight service to business class standards for all passengers. Lead-in fares start from £50 one-way including taxes.

Oxford Airport offers passengers short check-in times, passenger drop off just 20ft from the check-in desks, security just 15ft further and the departure lounge just a few steps from the security point. Aircraft are parked just 75ft away from the departure lounge and the overall passenger experience is as straightforward and stress free as possible. Minoan flights to Edinburgh take an hour and a half, making a day return to Scotland a practical and economical alternative to rail travel and overnight stay.

As of March 29 2013, Minoan Air will commence scheduled flights from Lugano Airport in Switzerland to Rome Fumicino (seven times a week) and Vienna International Airport (three times a week). The airline will increase its fleet to six aircraft within 2013 and more destinations are planned.
