"We recently launched a service to Lisbon and now add a tenth destination out of Denmark, this time to Madrid. Copenhagen is an important city in easyJet's route network, and we have long wanted to connect it to our base in the Spanish capital. Spanair's exit has made us accelerate our plans in order to provide non-stop flights between the two cities at affordable fares for the benefit of both Danish and Spanish travellers,” said Thomas Haagensen, Regional General Manager for easyJet in northern Europe.
"It was important to us to strengthen Madrid as a destination as soon as possible after Spanair's bankruptcy, because it is important for Denmark to maintain good connections to the metropolises of Europe," said Carsten Nørland, VP, Sales & Marketing for Copenhagen Airport, and he continued: "With easyJet's opening this new service, Copenhagen Airport's low-cost facility, CPH Go, has once again demonstrated its value by providing good growth conditions at Copenhagen for an airline such as easyJet."
easyJet already operates between Copenhagen and London Gatwick, London Stansted, Manchester, Berlin, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, Geneva and Milan Malpensa, and from 19 April to Lisbon.
