Blue Air to operate to Turin from Copenhagen
Following the announcement of a new route between Copenhagen and Bucharest earlier this year, Romanian airline Blue Air has announced the launch of a new service from Turin to Copenhagen.
From 27 March 2017, Blue Air will operate three services a week between Copenhagen and Turin, in northern Italy. Departures will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Tudor Constantinescu, Blue Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“We’re proud to be expanding our presence in Copenhagen with a new service three times a week to Turin from 27 March 2017. This new route follows on from the route to Bucharest that we announced previously. Scandinavia is becoming more and more popular with Italian travellers, especially those from the Piedmont region. Furthermore, we’ve identified a big demand from the Greater Copenhagen area for trips to Turin. Turin is interesting for both business and tourism. We’re looking forward to working closely with Copenhagen Airport to ensure the success of our new routes.”
The new route to Turin is currently not being served by any other airline.
Peter Krogsgaard, Copenhagen Airport’s Commercial Director, said:
“Italy is hugely popular with a lot of Danes, and we’ve been lacking a route to Turin, which is becoming increasingly more appealing to many Danes. It offers the best of Italy, with fantastic food, an interesting city and easy access to the Ligurian coast with its popular towns such as Pietra Ligure, Finale Ligure, Savona, San Remo and historic Genoa”.
“We’re experiencing a big increase in the number of Italian tourists travelling to Denmark. This is largely due to the fact that in recent years we’ve attracted more new routes to Italy. It’s good for the whole of Denmark when the tourism sector grows. The new route also means fresh opportunities for Danes, and the route to Turin will take many Danish ski tourists even closer to some of the most attractive skiing resorts in the Italian and French Alps”.
