Scandinavian Airlines SAS recently announced it will be expanding its regional network from October this year. The airline is introducing a new route by launching direct flight between Humberside International Airport and Copenhagen Airport starting from October 28, 2013.
SAS in a statement said that it will be operating five times weekly flights between Copenhagen and Humberside, once a day. The airline has already put the tickets on sale and is offering its customers cheap tickets starting from $161 (103 Pound) one-way (inclusive of government taxes, airport fees and fuel surcharges, and other terms and conditions applicable).
Hans Dyhrfort, SAS’ Regional General Manager Western Europe, said that the Humber region is an important northern hub for the airline. He further said that SAS considers the region as a significant area for its development with more than 5 million people living within the airport’s reach. He also said that the launch of regional service would help bolster ties with Denmark and the Nordic region.
