Ryanair and Norwegian collaborating in Copenhagen

Lower fares the result of co-operation on long-haul routes

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.

Copenhagen Airport is one of the airports mentioned in the agreement.
