Cheap flights carrier easyJet will launch new flights to Copenhagen from Manchester this autumn.
The six-times-a-week service means that the airliner has more than doubled the number of flights it operates from the Danish capital in one year.
Copenhagen Airports’ vice-president of aviation Carsten Norland said that easyJet’s presence was "intensifying competition on a number of routes", which is likely to benefit passengers.
Thomas Haagensem, easyJet’s regional market manager, said it was "especially pleasant" to announce the new route at a time when other airlines are cutting back on services.
"We believe that Manchester will be a successful route which will attract both business and leisure travellersm" he commented.
EasyJet already operates flights to Milan and London Gatwick from Denmark, which were introduced last summer on top of existing routes to Berlin and London Stansted.
The airline also revealed that it would launch an additional daily flight to Berlin from Copenhagen in November.
Cimber Sterling and Norwegian recently announced that they intended to launch new flights from the Danish capital this winter.
