Luftfartsselskab reopens route from Denmark to India


The direct flight route between Denmark and India was closed almost three years ago as a result of the corona pandemic.

The Indian airline Air India will re-establish the direct connection to Denmark when the company opens a route between Copenhagen Airport and the millionaire city of Delhi from next year.

This is what Copenhagen Airport writes in a press release.

Three years ago, the route was shut down as a consequence of the corona pandemic, which left the industry on its knees.

According to Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airport, the route will strengthen the airport’s position in Northern Europe.

– It will provide lots of new opportunities for business in Asia. In addition, travelers from Copenhagen will be able to fly via Delhi to a large number of destinations in India and the rest of Asia.

– A direct flight connection to India was for many years a great desire in Denmark, where the government, ministries, authorities, companies and the airport worked intensely to get the route landed. It finally succeeded in 2017, he says in the announcement.

Air India plans to have three weekly flights to India.

On the whole, 2022 seems to be the year when Denmark’s connection to the world’s largest population is strengthened.

Earlier this year, the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, visited for the first time in 20 years.

There has been a long period of diplomatic coolness as a result of the case of Danish Niels Holck, who helped an Indian group with weapons in the 1990s.

In December 1995, Niels Holck – under the cover name Kim Peter Davy – helped drop several tons of weapons in the Indian province of West Bengal.

The weapons were meant for Ananda Marga, which Indian authorities say is a rebel group, in its fight against state forces.

Subsequently, Niels Holck and his collaborators were forced to land in India, where all but Holck were sentenced to life imprisonment.

In 1996 he managed to escape to Denmark.

It was not until 2018 that cooperation between the countries was restarted, when it emerged that Denmark is working on a “legal track” to extradite Niels Holck.
