With Spring just around the corner, travellers thinking of a short break to somewhere different will soon be able to jet off direct from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to one of Europe’s most ‘Wonderful’ capital cities for the first time.

Commencing on Friday 5th April, JLA’s newest operator, Norwegian will start their three times weekly service to Copenhagen direct from Liverpool. With a flight time of just two hours, passengers can be in the Danish capital from Liverpool in less than the time it takes to reach London by train.

Copenhagen is renowned for its mix of historical and modern architecture, some of the best art museums and for being a multicultural centre with an international atmosphere.

As one of Europe’s oldest capital cities it has something for everyone; fairytale-like castles, cobblestone narrow streets, old timbered houses, canals and modern architecture and design. The city has attractions and sights to suit every taste and interest and most within walking distance.

Famous visitor attractions include The Tivoli Gardens – the world’s second oldest amusement park, filled with wild rides, green oases, gourmet food, rock concerts – and much more. It is located just a few minutes’ walk from City Hall and is very easy to get to. A large expansion of the site with three new rides opens in Spring 2013.

No trip to Copenhagen would be complete without a visit to the world famous statue of The Little Mermaid, located at Langelinje Pier, welcoming visitors to Copenhagen harbour. The story of the Little Mermaid is from Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale and this year the statue celebrates its 100th birthday having been donated to the City in 1913.

With flights at convenient times on Fridays, Mondays and Wednesdays, passengers have the added convenience of being able to visit Copenhagen for either a weekend or midweek break.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport added, “Norwegian’s new service to Copenhagen is a great addition to the list of European capital cities for the region’s travelers to go and visit. The City has so much to offer and with the added convenience of flying from their local airport we expect Copenhagen to be a popular destination from here.”

Birgitte Arendsdorf Olsen from Wonderful Copenhagen, The Official Convention, Event and Tourism Organisation for the Capital Region of Denmark, added “A new direct route from Liverpool to Copenhagen increases the accessibility from the UK, which is one of our largest international markets in Copenhagen. This gives us a great opportunity to attract tourists and business travelers from the Liverpool area and showcase Copenhagen as a green and culinary capital with inhabitants that have been nominated the happiest people in the world”.
