Bjørn Kjos and his low-cost carrier Norwegian Airlines now have a total of 55 routes from Copenhagen Airport. Latest they opened one to Fort Lauerdale in Florida.
In an interview with Danish website standby.dk, Bjørn Kjos declared Asia to be the future of Norwegian’s effort.
“Denmark and Copenhagen are very interesting for Asians, who wants to travel long for reasonable prices. A lot will happen for us, when it comes to the air traffic from Denmark. We are looking at the possibilities and extending our international traffic to China, India and other densely populated areas in Asia,” told Bjørn Kjos to standby.dk
Asked about the future cooperation between Norwegian Airlines and Copenhagen Airport, he replies positively.
“We are very satisfied with the airport, but it will have to be enlarged to manage the increasing traffic from the destinations outside the Schengen countries. Today Copenhagen Airport is the third biggest base for Norwegian,” he said and added that they are aware of high oil prices in the future, even though it is turning at the moment:
“We are making the necessary investments. Next year we are going to have the Dreamliners going, and then Asia will be very interesting for us,” said Bjørn Kjos.
