Usually fierce competitors, the two low-cost airlines Ryanair and Norwegian are currently taxiing out a partnership in which Copenhagen Airport will play a major role.
The deal will mean that passengers flying out of Copenhagen Airport on long-haul fights will be paying less.
“It is cause for celebration,” Ole Stouby, the head of travel search engine Travelmarket told Business.dk. “The co-operation will lead to lower prices. Other airlines will feel the pressure when these two low-cost giants join forces.”
Ryanair will be a ‘feeder’ for Norwegian and thus fly passengers from smaller airports to larger airports from which Norwegian flies long-haul flights.
Copenhagen Airport is one of the airports mentioned in the agreement.
