Air India introduces direct flights between Delhi and Copenhagen

From September, passengers can fly non-stop between New Delhi and Copenhagen.

Starting on 16 September, passengers can travel directly between India and Denmark when Air India introduces direct flights in each direction every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The direct connection answers a growing demand for greater connectivity, as cooperation, trade and tourism between India and Denmark is steadily growing. In 2016 alone, traffic between Denmark and India grew by 10.1%, and now passengerswill be able to travel between the two capitals directly in less than seven hours.

“I am very pleased that a new direct flight connection between Denmark and India is being established,” says Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Anders Samuelsen. “It will improve the connectivity between Denmark and India substantially and pave the road for further cooperation, trade and tourism. Denmark welcomes this and we support it from our part”.

The direct connection comes after negotiations between Air India, Copenhagen Airport and both Indian and Danish officials. Mr. Peter Taksøe-Jensen, Ambassador of Denmark to India, is happy that the efforts have paid off:

“India is a country of utmost importance in Asia – politically and economically. Many good forces in Denmark and India have been working closely together to reopen a direct connection between our two countries, benefiting growth, trade, and tourism. Additionally, it is an important step in the bilateral strategic partnership between Denmark and India.”

The business community also welcomed the announcement which will save them countless hours spent in transit and make it easier to do business between the two countries:

“It is indeed great news that Air India is now commencing direct flights between Copenhagen and Delhi," says the Chairman of Ramboll India, Mr. Søren Holm Johansen. "Together with the newly announced direct flights between Delhi and Stockholm the connectivity between Scandinavia and Delhi improves significantly. We at Ramboll had nearly 600 round trips last year between Scandinavia and India so we welcome this direct route very much.”
