Copenhagen will get its fifth UK Ryanair route in 2019, while four new winter routes from Skavsta are being put into action this week.
Ryanair will open a route between Copenhagen and John Lennon Airport in Liverpool next spring, which will be the airline’s fifth route between the Danish capital and the UK.
Although it has only two weekly departures, the new route to launch on April 1 may prove popular for the many Danish fans of Liverpool FC and The Beatles.
Ryanair flies out on Friday evenings at 20:55, arriving in Liverpool at 21:40. A return flight can then take place on Monday at 13:40 from Liverpool, with the plane arriving at CPH at 16:35.
The carrier’s other five destinations in the UK from Copenhagen are Edinburgh and the London airports in Luton, Stansted and Southend.
The Liverpool route will be served with Ryanair’s well-known Boeing 737-800s seating up to 189 passengers, so there will be 756 seats for sale on the route each week.
In February last year, Ryanair announced Copenhagen-Liverpool with four weekly departures, but the opening was cancelled. Norwegian flew the route with three weekly flights from April 2013 to March 2014, axing it due to poor demand.
Four for Skavsta
In other news about Ryanair, its four new routes from Stockholm Skavsta started this week, to Kiev, Edinburgh, Banja Luka and Marrakech.
Kiev and Edinburgh began on Monday with the customary cake for passengers and the first arriving flight from Edinburgh was given a water salute by Skavsta’s fire and rescue team.
On Tuesday, the first flight to Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina departed, while today it is the premiere of the new route to Marrakech in Morocco.
“The winter season is starting this week,” Stockholm Skavsta Airport’s managing director, Peter Steinmetz, said.
“These routes will contribute to the expanding Ryanair network to and from Stockholm and offer interesting travel options for holidays, business and visits to friends and relatives during this upcoming winter season.”
