It’s about to get a whole lot easier to check out the capital of Denmark as new direct flights from Montreal to Copenhagen are slated to begin.

Air Transat announced it will operate service twice a week from June 16 to September 20, 2020.

Passengers will fly on the Airbus A321neoLR, a next-generation aircraft recently added to Air Transat’s fleet which promised to deliver an “improved inflight experience.”

“Air Transat is proud to be the only air carrier to offer non-stop service to Copenhagen out of Montreal,” says Annick GuĂ©rard, chief operating officer of Air Transat. “This brings the number of European destinations we will be offering next summer to 27. The introduction of Airbus A321neoLRs to our fleet marked a milestone in our air operations management.

“These long-range narrow-body aircraft are improving our efficiency and flexibility, and enabling us to continue expanding our vacation destination offering.”

Copenhagen is one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in Europe. The city is a model of green development, surrounded by water and parks and is known to be a cyclist’s paradise.

Noted for its rich design culture, museums, and fine dining, Copenhagen offers an extremely diversified range of tourist activities and attractions.

“This new flight reinforces Montreal’s position as an international city that’s open to the world,” says Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme MontrĂ©al. “We will do our part in ensuring the touristic and economic success of this new collaboration between the two cities, all while working closely with our Montreal partners.”
