The new routes will be introduced from March, flying twice daily to Edinburgh on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and twice daily to Dublin 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.
Andi Pargeter, managing director of London Oxford Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome these new Minoan Air scheduled services to two key destinations, which will suit leisure and business travellers alike.
“Oxford Airport boasts first-class facilities and our strategic location with no other commercial airports within an hour in all directions, makes Oxford the ideal location from which Minoan Air can expand its route network.”
Marcos Caramalengos, CCO of Minoan Air, said: “We were keen to expand our operations into the UK market place and our research identified London Oxford Airport as the ideal location to inaugurate these services, offering great traffic potential.
“We are confident passengers will enjoy our service offering and we are already considering the possibility of introducing further routes from Oxford.”
