Copenhagen’s route network showing signs of growth
The summer of 2022 is beginning to look much better for Copenhagen Airport (CPH) in terms of its route network, with long-haul flights to Toronto and New York back on the agenda.
The airport acknowledges that airlines have so far prioritised European destinations, but says that the world is now really opening up, revealing that Air Canada (Toronto) and American (New York) will return for 2022 summer schedules when they also be joined by Turkish airline, Corendon, which will serve 14 destinations in Greece, Turkey and Spain from the Danish capital.
In other route development news, from this week, SAS will once again start flying to Palanga in western Lithuania with five weekly departures.
And from week 43, the opportunities to get from Copenhagen to Prague will double when both CSA Czech Airlines and SAS resume a weekly departure and the connection between the Danish capital.
In addition to SAS’s routes to the USA, Asia is now also being opened up more. Thai Airways will resume direct flights to Phuket in November.
The new services will mean that from the summer of 2022, 196 routes to 113 destinations will be served from Copenhagen.
“Both in the short and medium term, we see positive trends, and with announcements from Air Canada, Delta and Corendon, we now see more airlines in CPH that dare to plan further into the future,” says CPH’s route development manager, Morten Mortensen.
“It bodes well for our position as a northern European hub, and then it gives passengers more choices.”
