Cimber To Start CPHNCL; 11th UK From CPH

Mon Jan 22, 2007 8:15 pm

Hey everyone!

Cimber Air (QI) just announced that from March 25th, 2007, they will start operating a once-daily 50-seat CRJ flight CPH-NCL, with convenient connections in CPH.

The route has been tried before, first by easyJet, then by SK (op. by QI), and now they try themselfes. FlyBe talked about starting NCL-CPH with a Q400 a few months ago; donøt know what happened with that.

NCL will be the 11th UK destination from CPH; no other airport in Scandinavia or Germany has as many flights to the UK as CPH: LHR, LGW, LCY, STN, MAN, BHX, LBA, GLA, EDI, NCL, ABZ.

That is great news! I hope this one lasts. WF seem to be doing well on the Oslo run, so hopefully this should be a lasting route. Seems that the LCCs have a bit trouble filling large planes in these routed out of NCL. Anyone know how LS are doing on the Newcastle - Bergen route?

WF are not operating Oslo (OSL)-Newcastle (NCL).

They are only doing Bergen (BGO)-Newcastle (NCL) and Stavanger (SVG)-Newcastle (NCL). Ryanair is however doing a daily Oslo (TRF) - Newcastle (NCL) at the moment, but I think it will be discontinued in March. Norwegian starts Oslo (OSL) - Edinburgh (EDI) in April though.

I think Jet2.com are doing allright on their NCL-BGO-NCL, even heard rumours that they were interested in NCL-OSL-NCL.

It used to be, but they are scaling down.... Never understood why they stop NCL but continue LPL, sorry to say but NCL is way nicer....

I know Cimber Air wont codeshare with SAS but will they interline with them at CPH in order to facilitate the connections talked about?

Also its wierd that only a few years ago Brathens flew NCL-Oslo with B737's but soon there will be no service to an Oslo area airport

Nice to see that Cimber Air is taking this route up again, even though I would prefere to see FlyBe give it a shot.

Any other routes (to/from CPH) who might be interesting for FlyBe?

According to the news, they will interline with SK on the route. I think they'll code-share, too (why not?)

Can't think of any right now.. but I reckon what's left in the UK would be too small for anything else than a Q400, and AFAIK it's not the optimal plane for two-hour flights economically speaking
