Humberside International Airport has announced a new route linking it to Copenhagen.

Scandinavian Airlines will be flying once a day to Copenhagen from Humberside, five times a week, from October.

Tickets will be on sale from June 17, with flights set to cost from just £103 one-way including taxes and charges.

Hans Dyhrfort, Scandinavian Airlines’ regional general manager for western Europe, said: “With more than five million people living within reach of the airport, the Humber region is an important northern hub and area of development for us.

“And with the area on its way to becoming the renewable energy capital of the UK, now is the perfect time to strengthen ties with Denmark and the Nordic region.

“We are pleased to offer passengers the choice and flexibility to fly direct from Humberside to Copenhagen or onwards to many other destinations in Scandinavia and Northern Europe”.

Paul Litten, Humberside International Airport’s commercial director added: “The announcement of a new high profile route to Copenhagen is great news for Humberside International Airport as we will be providing the only non-stop, direct service to Scandinavia from the Humber, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire region.”

“The new service will not only benefit business travellers heading to the city of Copenhagen and those connecting onwards to a comprehensive network of Scandinavian cities, but also leisure travellers taking short breaks in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Baltic countries.”

“SAS’s commitment underlines their view that the Humber, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire region is a place to do business and this service will provide superb connectivity to Scandinavia and beyond.”

“Today is a major milestone, attracting Scandinavian Airlines to Humberside as we develop a range of convenient services for those five million passengers within an hour’s drive of the airport.”

Flights to Copenhagen will operate once a day, five days a week from October 28 October, leaving Humberside at 7.15pm and landing at 9.50pm local time.

The return flight will depart Copenhagen at 6.10pm and arrive at Humberside at 6.45pm.

Connections will be available at Copenhagen to a number of onward points, including Finland (Turku and Helsinki), Sweden (Gothenburg and Stockholm), Norway (Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger), Poland (Warsaw, Gdansk, Poznan, Wroclaw) and Lithuania (Palanga).
