Cornwall to get new direct flights to Copenhagen

Hello Copenhagen - Cornwall calling! SAS has announced new flights from Newquay.

The Scandinavian airline will introduce direct services from the Duchy to Denmark next summer.

The airline's inaugural route will operate Mondays and Fridays over the peak summer season, from the 28th June 2019.

The new service not only opens a direct link between Cornwall and Denmark, but also allows for passengers to connect onto a network of over 70 onward destinations in Europe, Asia and North America via a transfer, including other European cities such as Oslo and Stockholm.

"This is a route not only for the many Scandinavians wanting to explore Cornwall and the South West of the UK, but also for our local catchment, which now have flights designed perfectly for an extended weekend break in one of Europe's coolest capital cities".

SAS will be the sixth airline to offer scheduled flights from Cornwall Airport Newquay, joining Flybe, Aer Lingus, Eurowings, Skybus and Ryanair.

Tuesday's announcement comes hot on the heels of flights being secured from Newquay to Gatwick.

Flybe will operate daily flights between the two airports, with three return flights on weekdays and two per day at weekends.

Last year 160,000 passengers travelled using the route, with visitors increasingly coming from Germany and the USA, and the funding has further increased confidence in the airport, with other airlines operating new routes from Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.

“Cornwall Airport Newquay is an example of one of our thriving regional aviation hubs, playing a vital role in connecting communities, boosting tourism and unlocking economic growth.

“Continuing to support this key route between Cornwall and London demonstrates our commitment to creating transport links across the UK which put the needs of passengers first".

Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg
