- Danish airline Sun-Air, operating as a British Airways franchise partner, has introduced double-daily weekday service between Billund (BLL) and Munich (MUC), after the route was dropped by Cimber Sterling in late February. Sun-Air owner and captain Niels Sundberg said: “Our strategy is to offer direct routes from Jutland in close cooperation with the regional business sector – and we are determined to continue this strategy despite the very challenging market terms. The fierce competition and the high fuel prices make it very difficult to make a reasonable profit, but we believe that our aircraft are ideal for the Munich route and have decided to go for it. We have been in dialogue with several regional business customers in order to find the best possible schedule. We have succeeded in getting the desired slots in Munich and we are therefore able to offer our passengers a morning and evening departure on all weekdays as well as an evening departure on Sundays. The regional business sector greatly supports our initiative, and we look forward to offering our passengers the usual good Sun-Air service”. The route will be operated with Sun-Air’s Dornier 328 jet aircraft.
