New direct flights Kastrup - Haugesund?



Ryanair has applied for slots to serve 23 destination from the new low price SWIFT terminal at Copenhagen airport and one destination on their list is Haugesund airport on the Western coast of Norway.

Ryanair has had flights from Torp airport for a long time, and extended its activity to Rygge Airport closer to Oslo. The air carrier has also had direct seasonal flights from Haugesund to Alicante, Bremen, Edinburgh and a all-year service to London Stanstead. Now Haugesund may get non-stop flights to the new SWIFT terminal in Copenhagen.

This as the city is on Ryanairs wish list. Other cities on it are:

  • Belgium: Charleroi
  • Finland: Lappeenranta, Tampere
  • France: Montpellier
  • Germany: Dresden, Leipzig
  • Holland: Eindhoven
  • Ireland: Dublin, Shannon
  • Italy: Brindisi, Pisa, Rome-Ciampino
  • Morocco: Sais
  • Spain: Alicante, Jerez de la Frontera, Madrid, Málaga, Reus, Santander
  • UK: Edinburgh, Liverpool, Prestwick

Their plans may not, necessarily, mean that these flights will start, as budget airlines are bidding for slots as part of their tactic, and Ryanair has not confirmed which destination to fly to. It will probably be late August before the air carrier will decide whether they will start flights to the 23 new destinations from Copenhagen.
