More routes link Nordics with UK

British Airways and bmi regional launch routes in May
Two new routes are launching in May to bring Scandinavia and the UK closer together.
Tomorrow, British Airways begins a new route between Billund and London Heathrow. Initially, BA will fly to Denmark’s second biggest airport 11 times a week from Heathrow’s Terminal 5, on both A319 and A320 aircraft. The flights are scheduled for favourable connections with North America. Sun-Air, a British Airways franchise already links Billund with London City Airport.
Meanwhile, UK carrier bmi regional is targeting leisure and business travellers with the launch of a new route between Stavanger and Newcastle. The Sunday-to-Friday service launches on May 31.
The airline thinks the route will do well with the business community, due to Stavanger’s proximity to the North Sea’s oil fields, as well as with tourists. However, Sun-Air has just closed its route between Aalborg and the Norwegian oil capital because of the crisis in the global oil industry.
