Leeds Bradford Airport Announces New Direct Route from Copenhagen

2nd December 2013

Categories: News

The Harrogate District will soon be welcoming a lot more visitors from abroad as a result of the new direct service from Leeds Bradford Airport to Copenhagen, which is set to start on the 31st of March 2014.

Leeds Bradford Airport was thrilled to announce this new route on Thursday 21st November 2013. Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airports Aviation Development and Marketing Director said, “Leeds Bradford International Airport is delighted to welcome SAS linking Copenhagen, Denmark's capital, with Leeds, the UK's third largest city and one of the major tourist centres in Yorkshire. Regional businesses and tourism partners will also be pleased that this new direct service will offer a range of onward connections across Scandinavia to Sweden, Norway, Finland and Eastern Europe.''

This new route will offer Scandinavian travellers a gateway to Yorkshire with flights operated by Scandinavian airline, SAS, which will fly twice weekly, on a Monday and on a Friday. It will take less than two hours to get from Copenhagen and prices start from just £92 one-way.

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.”
