Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has launched a new route between Cornwall Airport Newquay and Copenhagen ahead of the original planned opening date.
The twice-weekly service is the first to connect Cornwall with the Nordic nation and will generate 2,880 seats from the airport during peak season. The link also opens up SAS’s network of more than 70 destinations around Europe, Asia and North America for Cornish passengers.
The route was originally due to launch on 28 June, but the date was moved forward due to passenger demand.
Al Titterington, MD of Cornwall Airport Newquay, commented: “...due to overwhelming demand, SAS not only brought the launch forward a week, the carrier also added more capacity. With 25 per cent more seats on offer than initially planned, we look forward to developing further with our newest airline partner and building on the instant success of Copenhagen.”
Other European routes from the airport include Alicante, Cork, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Faro and Stuttgart.
