SAS begins seven to eight weekly Copenhagen-Billund frequencies
As SAS begins operating five weekly frequencies between Copenhagen and Billund each weekday plus two to three at weekends, the airline is filling the last gap on the route map after the bankruptcy of Cimber Sterling in the early summer. First there was the bankruptcy in May that closed much of the domestic traffic in Denmark. Then came a summer with fewer-than-normal domestic flights – and an unfortunate situation with no flights between the two biggest airports in Denmark.
But SAS has eliminated these concerns now that the first SAS flight from Billund to Copenhagen has taken off. With this new service, SAS has increased its domestic services within Denmark by more than 50% in the course of the summer. And with the new Billund service, more than 80% of the seats that vanished in the Cimber Sterling bankruptcy are now back on the market.
