LONDON – Cornwall Airport Newquay has announced a significant development in its S23 schedule with highly demanded Scandinavian connections.
A substantial boost to the Cornish gateway’s network, the twice-weekly link to Copenhagen will see the airport welcome the return of Scandinavian Airlines’ (SAS) seasonal service from June 2023.
The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden will utilise its fleet of CRJ900s on the 1,307-km sector, offering close to 2,500 two-way seats during the peak season.
Amy Smith, Head of Commercial, Cornwall Airport Newquay commented: “SAS joined us in 2019 and witnessed exceptional success when the carrier linked us to the Nordic nation for the first time.”
“Resuming the Copenhagen service will not only enhance the variety of destinations we offer our customers once again, but also re-open the Star Alliance network of over 70 onward destinations in Europe, Asia, and North America.”
“We look forward to working with SAS next year and rebuilding the triumph of this route and developing further with our airline partner.”
Speaking for Scandinavian Airlines, Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management further commented on the move, saying:
“SAS is very happy to announce the resumption of the route between Copenhagen and Newquay/Cornwall.”
“We look forward to bringing more Scandinavian tourists to enjoy charming Cornwall this summer. The route also offers the residents of Cornwall easy access to discover Scandinavia as well as onward connections from Copenhagen.”
European services from Cornwall Airport Newquay
Copenhagen joins Newquay’s growing direct European services from Newquay, including Alicante, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Faro, Malaga and Zurich.
This now takes the airport’s offering to 21 destinations with ten airline partners.
The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is rich with culture, both modern and historical, with architecture ranging from impressive medieval structures to the famous simplicity of modern Scandinavian design.
The city is home to an array of colourful houses, boat-lined canals and a quaint amusement park said to be the inspiration behind Walt Disney World, bang in the middle of the city!
The perfect location for a summer city break, and given the strong demand for flight services, the twice-weekly offering from SAS will be welcomed.
Copenhagen also allows a seamless transfer onto the SAS network, including cities such as Oslo and Stockholm.
