Cornwall Airport Newquay has added a new route to Copenhagen with Scandinavian airline SAS, directly linking the Cornish gateway to the city for the first time.

The airline launched its seasonal service to Copenhagen on 21 June, commencing its twice-weekly operation to the capital city.

“Our new route to the Danish capital was originally due to start next week but, due to overwhelming demand, SAS not only bought the launch forward a week, the carrier also added more capacity,” explains Al Titterington, managing director, Cornwall Airport Newquay. “With 25% more seats on offer than initially planned, we look forward to developing further with our newest airline partner, and building on the instant success of Copenhagen.”

Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) explains that SAS’ operation will generate an additional 2,880 seats from the airport during the peak season, and also enhances travel options to Cornwall – opening up a network of over 70 onward destinations in Europe, Asia and North America for Cornish travellers.

SAS becomes the sixth airline to offer scheduled flights from the airport and the new link to Copenhagen join’s CAN’s direct European services to Alicante, Cork, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Faro and Stuttgart this summer.
