SAS Scandinavian Airlines has launched its Stansted-Copenhagen service.
The carrier’s five-times daily flight programme got under way on Monday (April 8).
Services will increase to a daily return schedule from July 1.
Mats Sigurdson, Stansted aviation director, said: "It’s great news SAS has returned to Stansted with the launch of this new service to Copenhagen.
"The service will not only provide passengers from London and the east of England with even more choice to an exciting European destination, I’m also sure the route will prove to be really popular with business passengers from Copenhagen looking for great in-flight service plus quick and convenient access to the London-Stansted-Cambridge economic corridor."
Niko Ek, SAS Europe general manager, added: "We continue to see an increasing demand for flights to Copenhagen from the UK and are delighted to offer our customers the option to fly from both London Heathrow and London Stansted.
"For Danes, a choice of arrival airport into London will also offer increased convenience.”
