North Yorkshire Airport To Get Flights To Scandinavia
6:01am 23rd November 2013
Leeds Bradford Airport has secured its first direct route to Scandinavia.
Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will operate flights to Copenhagen from March next year.
The service will offer a range of onward connections to Sweden, Norway, Finland and Eastern Europe.
Hans Dyhrfort, SAS' Regional General Manager Western Europe, said: "With almost three million people living within reach of the airport, Leeds Bradford and the Yorkshire region is an important hub of development for SAS.
"With York having established itself as the 'Viking' capital of the UK and the Yorkshire area having already strong cultural connections with Scandinavia, this is the perfect time to also strengthen business and commercial links between Leeds and Scandinavia."
