Copenhagen comes back to Cornwall Airport Newquay

Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY) has announced a significant development in its S23 schedule with the highly demanded return of Scandinavian connections.

A substantial boost to the Cornish gateway’s network, the twice-weekly link to Copenhagen will see the airport welcome the return of SAS’s seasonal service from June 2023.

The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden will utilise its fleet of CRJ900s on the 1,307-km sector, offering close to 2,500 two-way seats during the peak season.

Amy Smith, Head of Commercial, Cornwall Airport Newquay commented: “SAS joined us in 2019 and witnessed exceptional success when the carrier linked us to the Nordic nation for the first time. Resuming the Copenhagen service will not only enhance the variety of destinations we offer our customers once again, but also re-open the Star Alliance network of over 70 onward destinations in Europe, Asia, and North America.

“We look forward to working with SAS next year and rebuilding the triumph of this route and developing further with our airline partner.”

“SAS is very happy to announce the resumption of the route between Copenhagen and Newquay/Cornwall,” says Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management, SAS.

“We look forward to bringing more Scandinavian tourists to enjoy charming Cornwall next summer.

“The route also offers the residents of Cornwall easy access to discover Scandinavia as well as onward connections from Copenhagen.”

The return of Copenhagen to NQY’s route map joins the airport’s growing direct European services which now include Alicante, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Faro, Malaga, and Zurich.
