From the end of March 2008, western Denmark will be linked to Lufthansa’s worldwide route network with a service that will be operated for the first time by Lufthansa itself. The move marks the 50th anniversary of Lufthansa’s first flight to Denmar.
Flights will connect Billund Airport in Central Jutland to Lufthansa’s Frankfurt hub three times a day. Lufthansa Regional partner Eurowings will deploy a BAe 146-300, a modern, four-engine passenger jet on this route, which is currently operated by Cirrus Airlines on a codeshare basis with Lufthansa.
Customers will benefit from the ideal connections from Billund to more than 190 Lufthansa destinations via Frankfurt as well as from the airline’s reasonably priced European fares. On many dates from 30 March 2008, a return flight from Frankfurt to Billund can be had for as little as 99 euros, Lufthansa’s betterFly fare, subject to availability.
Billund is located in one of Denmark’s most important economic regions, where many branches of industry and service companies are based. In addition, the city is renowned for being the headquarters of the famous toy manufacturer Lego. The nearby Legoland theme park attracts visitors from all over the world. The modern airport in Billund is also an ideal starting point for trips to numerous popular resorts on the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
