Last Monday, Copenhagen Airport announced a quarter-billion Danish kroner project for expanding Pier C, which is used for large aircraft for long-haul flights. CPH is preparing for the expected growth in intercontinental flights.
Only three days later, Norwegian also made an expansion announcement: It will open a new service between Copenhagen and Bangkok on 30 October. The route will be served by two weekly frequencies, departing on Thursdays and Sundays.
Norwegian already offers direct long-haul flights between Copenhagen and New York, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale.
"I am very pleased that we can now offer Danish travellers direct flights between Copenhagen and Bangkok. Our long-haul services out of Denmark have been very well received, which shows that people in Denmark want to travel to overseas destinations comfortably and at low fares," said Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos.
