Ryanair will operate a permanent basis with two Boeing 737 at the international airport of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmarkfrom December 2023.
Ryanair is already the third largest airline at Copenhagen Airport, today operating 20 routes and carrying 2.3 million passengers a year to/from the Danish capital. Copenhagen will become the second Danish base of the Irish low cost after Billund, in the center of the country. With the arrival of two Boeing 737s, Ryanair’s 2023/2024 winter schedule to/from Copenhagen will offer 24 routes, with 4 new destinations to Düsseldorf, Faro, Paris and Warsaw, and increased frequencies to Gdansk and Krakow.
In Denmark, Ryanair operates in Billund, and also offers flights to/from three other Danish airports, Aalborg, Aarhus and Copenhagen. The opening of the new Copenhagen base from December will allow the Irish low-cost carrier to offer low-cost competition and choice for early morning departures and late evening arrivals. Some 100 new jobs will be created by Ryanair under its collective bargaining agreement with the Danske Metal Union in Denmark, which already covers wages and working conditions at its Billund base.
