SAS to start Humberside-Copenhagen service

Copenhagen is to be served from Humberside airport from this winter with a new SAS service.

The airline is to use a 50-seat CRJ200 regional jet on the route with five flights a week.

The year-round services starts on October 28 with fares leading in at £103 one-way including taxes and charges.

Flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays will depart from Humberside at 7.15pm, arriving in Copenhagen at 9.50pm local time. Weekday flights from Copenhagen take off at 6.10pm local time, arriving in Humberside at 6.45pm.

Sunday services leave from Humberside at 2.55pm and from the Danish capital at 1.50pm local time.

The announcement comes just over a year since the ownership of Humberside airport changed hands from Manchester Airports Group to the Eastern Group, which also owns regional carrier Eastern Airways.

The airport also offers year-round services to Amsterdam with KLM and Aberdeen with Eastern Airways.

SAS regional manager western Europe Hans Dyhrfort said: “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’s commercial director Paul Litten said: “This latest development from Humberside demonstrates both our commitment along with SAS’s to support the business community with a valuable air link that enhances the region’s transport connections and helps businesses to further grow and prosper.

“With over two million people within an hour’s drive of the airport, the Humberside–Copenhagen service will benefit tourists and leisure travellers heading to the Scandinavian and Baltic countries and also visiting our region.”
