AZ Books UK–Sweden Flight

Beginning in March, AstraZeneca will pay for Scandinavian airline Sun Air to make the one-hour flight from Cambridge to Gothenburg’s Landvetter airport  Monday to Thursday mornings, and return in the early evening, to link the company’s two research hubs. 

AstraZeneca has agreed to pay for 20 seats on each flight, but the remaining 12 will be open to the public. Since Gothenburg, like Cambridge, is home to many life science ventures, AsraZeneca hopes other Cambridge scientists will make use of the flight.

Pascal Soriot, chief executive, told the Telegraph that the air link was conceived as a way to make Cambridge and Gothenburg behave as if they were one giant research hub.
