Ryanair has announced a new route between Denmark and southern Germany – its fourth German route from CPH.
Ryanair has announced a new route connecting Copenhagen and Nuremberg, with a twice weekly service starting at the end of October as part of the carrier’s winter schedules.
Bookings for the flights – Ryanair’s fourth German route from Copenhagen – are being accepted until March 2020.
Nuremberg has not been served from CPH since 2011, but Albrecht Dürer Flughafen Nürnberg, Germany’s tenth largest airport, set a record last year with more than 4.4 million passengers.
The growth is likely to continue in the coming years thanks to Ryanair, which opened a base there in autumn 2016.
NUE-CPH will start from October 30, with departures on Wednesdays from Nuremberg at 16:45 and an arrival in Copenhagen at 18:15.
After a fast turnaround, the 189-seat Boeing 737-800 returns at 18:40 with an arrival back in southern Germany of 20:20.
On Saturdays, the flight departs Nuremberg at 12:30, arriving in Copenhagen at 14:00. The return flight is set at 14:25, arriving at 15:55 after the hour-and-a-half flight.
An earlier attempt at a direct flight connection between Copenhagen and Nuremberg was made by Ostfriesische Lufttransport (OLT), but it lasted only for three months up to February 2011.
The year before that, SAS shut down the same city pair, which had been operated with 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200 operated by the former Danish carrier Cimber Sterling.
Ryanair is gaining ground in the market between Germany and Copenhagen. For several years it has flown six times a week to Cologne/Bonn, and via its Austrian subsidiary Laudamotion it has opened up Stuttgart with six weekly flights from March 27 and, from April 3, twice a week to Düsseldorf.
