Good morning all Airliners.net,

Interesting development.

I wonder if this was a political or economical decision.

MEA is still scheduled to start up its summer seasonal CPH service from BEY on May 30 operating twice weekly on A330-200s (a few weeks, it will be once weekly).

Infact, some of the flights are already getting quite full.

It will operate until August 19 this summer season.

I guess this means MEA will be the only link between Denmark and the Arab world.

Yeah just read it on Tv2...

Well ain't that cute, religion and busniess hand in hand...

To quote TV2:

"Because of the failed diologue meeting in Copenhagen, it makes it political incorrect for Emirates to fly to Denmark..."

The "failed" diologue meeting in Denmark, were one from Q8 yelling how bad us Danes were and that our PM should apologise.

Boaz.

Well usually a summer service is ended with the end of the summer schedule Wink

Other than that it doesn't speak for the people if a stupid painting is the reason for such a behavior.
That is so childish!

It's not coming back.

It was never a summer seasonal service. They operated year-round and was originally a Snowflake route, they then dropped it along with several other destinations last October.

Quoting Cedars747 (Reply 5):

MS dropped CPH along with several other destinations in 2004.

SK is dropping CPH-CAI early next month. They made this announcement last Fall at the same time they announced they were dropping BEY.

Oops, you're right. 1x weekly TUN-ARN-CPH-TUN on an A320.

Quoting Cedars747 (Reply 10):

It's been canceled, indefinitely. It was never a summer seasonal service.

It was originally a Snowflake route and when the Snowflake brand was shut down, it was transfered to SAS when they finally decided to drop it last October.

It's gone for good.

EK started HAM services a couple of days ago - so maybe this is the reason why EK drops CPH.

Hardly any surprise - it was only a matter of time before it was dropped. A shame really, as it was showing approx 1000 bookings pr week. Can anyone remember the frequency they had planned?

I highly doubt EK starting up service to HAM and being apparently successful with the route already has anything to do with CPH getting temporarily axed.

as you can see above "Cedar747" DOES miss them as he wanted to fly with them out of CPH and now, if still wanting to use their services has to "feeder" to another place. It is very sad that such political hickups have such consequences.

It is also unprofessional from them... This is really surprising indeed. I thought they were smarter than that.

Is Iran Air still flying to CPH, ARN and GOT?

Quoting CPH-R (Reply 13):

I think it was 3x weekly on an A330. After the first month it was supposed to be daily.

I think it is silly, but it is not necessary that political reasons are the only ones. The market for Danes could be harmed due to the fact that many Danes now feel unsecure to transit through the Middle East. However, the 1000 average bookings a week (source: http://politiken.dk/VisArtikel.iasp?PageID=443250) suggested a really good start orr a route starting in october with 3x daily?



Last flight: SAW-CPH on H9 on 02/11/09 - Next Flights: 23/12/09 CPH-AAL on QI, 30/12/09 CPH-LHR on SK, 19/01/10 CPH-CDG-

Well i never flew them before ,for this reason i was happy about Emirates from CPH since CPH is an ideal intercontinental hub for me

Well in part you are right since PIA an Iran Air fly to Denmark

People you have to understand that there was alot of pressure on EK to postpone the CPH service due to the recent incident!! I live in Dubai and even though we didn't have any violent demostrations and thank GOD for that, the situation is still stagnant.... The boycott is still on!!!!

I am not sure how long the boycott will last but... and eventhough it seems like the situation calmed down a bit, I think it was wise for EK to postpone the CPH service to avoid any complications.

I think the CPH route will be re-instated after the whole issue blows over. So give it sometime
