Scandinavian Airlines is expanding its regional network and launching a new direct route from Leeds Bradford International Airport to Copenhagen with operations scheduled to start March 31st next year.
The service will operate two days a week – Monday and Friday – with a flight time to Copenhagen of just one hour 50 minutes.
Hans Dyhrfort, SAS’ regional general manager Western Europe, commented: “With almost three million people living within reach of the airport, Leeds Bradford and the Yorkshire region is an important hub of development for SAS.
“With York having established itself as the ‘Viking’ capital of the UK and the Yorkshire area having already strong cultural connections with Scandinavia, this is the perfect time to also strengthen business and commercial links between Leeds and Scandinavia.
“By launching this new direct route to Copenhagen, we are pleased to offer passengers the choice and flexibility to fly direct from Leeds to Copenhagen and onwards to many other destinations in Scandinavia and beyond.”
Earlier this year, SAS opened two new routes from the UK; from both Newcastle and Humberside to Copenhagen.
