Cornwall Airport Newquay has said that it has expanded its Summer 23 schedule with the addition of a new direct service to Copenhagen.
Copenhagen joins Newquay’s growing direct European services from Newquay, including Alicante, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Faro, Malaga and Zurich.
With the expansion, Cornwall Airport will welcome the return of SAS’s seasonal service, operating twice-weekly services to Copenhagen, starting from June 2023. The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden will use its fleet of CRJ900s on the 1,307-km sector, offering close to 2,500 two-way seats during the peak season.
Amy Smith, Head of Commercial, Cornwall Airport Newquay, commented: ‘SAS joined us in 2019 and witnessed exceptional success when the carrier linked us to the Nordic nation for the first time. Resuming the Copenhagen service will not only enhance the variety of destinations we offer our customers once again, but also re-open the Star Alliance network of over 70 onward destinations in Europe, Asia, and North America. We look forward to working with SAS next year and rebuilding the triumph of this route and developing further with our airline partner.’
‘SAS is very happy to announce the resumption of the route between Copenhagen and Newquay/Cornwall. We look forward to bringing more Scandinavian tourists to enjoy charming Cornwall this summer. The route also offers the residents of Cornwall easy access to discover Scandinavia as well as onward connections from Copenhagen,’ said Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management.
With the addition of Copenhagen, Cornwall Airport will now operate to a total of 21 destinations with ten airline partners.
