Ryanair eyes Danish routes

Ryanair Holdings is negotiating with Copenhagen Airports about possibly transferring some routes out of Malmoe in Sweden to Copenhagen.The report came in the local Jyllands-Posten newspaper on Wednesday.

The Swedish government said it will levy a SEK95 tax on airline tickets according to Dow Jones news wire.

When this happens, Ryanair will cut its flights out of the country, Karl Hogstadius, head of sales in the U.K. and Ireland, told the paper.

From July 1, it will discontinue one of two daily flights between Malmoe and London and a new route between Malmoe and Dublin, he said.

“Therefore we are now looking at the possibly of starting with routes from Copenhagen,” Hogstadius said.
