New Ryanair route Copenhagen – Warsaw (Modlin Airport) from March 2015
The Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair announced a new route connecting the capitals of Poland and Denmark. Flights Warsaw Modlin Airport – Copenhagen Airport will be available from 26 March 2015 with once daily frequency.
Modlin Airport (WMI) is the low-cost airport of Warsaw, located approx. 25 miles north of the Polish capital. Copenhagen Kastrup (CPH) is the main airport of Denmark, situated 5 miles south of city centre.
Together with Copenhagen-Warsaw route, Ryanair launches also two other services from Copenhagen:
- Copenhagen Airport – London-Luton Airport, available twice daily
- Copenhagen Airport – Milan-Bergamo, available once per day
Copenhagen – Ryanair’s new base
The carrier has also officially confirmed that Copenhagen Airport will become the second Danish base of Ryanair, an airline so far rather poorly represented in southern Scandinavia. The first Ryanair base in Denmark was established in Billund Airport in 2012.
The three new routes from Copenhagen Airport are just the first stage of Ryanair’s expansion in this location; additional 10 routes are to be announced in the New Year. With up to four aircrafts stationed in Copenhagen-Kastrup the airline is planning to increase the number of weekly flights from 28 to over 100 and reach the number of 1 million passengers served per year.
The first Ryanair aircraft to be based in Copenhagen-Kastrup as of March 205 is a Boeing 737-800.
Ryanair Copenhagen promotional sale
As it has become the airline’s tradition already, the establishing of the new base is celebrated with a promotional sale of tickets for the new Ryanair Copenhagen routes. 100,000 seats are available for sale for travel in November, December and January with prices from 149 DKK (approx. 16 GBP). The promotion ceases by Thursday midnight, 30 October 2014.
