A direct route to Copenhagen is being launched from Leeds Bradford Airport from March next year.

The new route will provide passengers with a gateway to Scandinavia for the first time.  Flights, operated by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), will run two days a week – Monday and Friday – with prices start from £92 one-way.

Tony Hallwood, the airport’s 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.”

Hans Dyhrfort, SAS regional general manager Western Europe, added: “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.”
