A new direct scheduled service from Humberside Airport to Copenhagen is to be launched by SAS on Monday 28 October, with Cimber Air operating the route with a 50-seat CRJ200 on SAS’s behalf.
SAS will offer five flights a week between Humberside and the Danish capital with timings aimed at business travellers and also those connecting onto onward flights within Scandinavia and Northern Europe.
The new year-round service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays with weekday flights departing from Humberside at 19:15, arriving in Copenhagen at 21:50. Weekday flights from Copenhagen take off at 18:10pm, arriving in Humberside at 18.45. Finally, Sunday services depart from Copenhagen at 13:50 and leave Humberside at 14:55. All the listed times are local.
Hans Dyhrfort, SAS’s regional general manager Western Europe, commented, “This is a major milestone for SAS, as we will start providing the only non-stop, direct service to Scandinavia from the Humber, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire region. With the area on its way to becoming the renewable energy capital of the UK, the Humber region is an important northern hub and area of development for SAS.”
The airport also offers year-round scheduled services from Humberside to Amsterdam with KLM and Aberdeen with Eastern Airways.
