  • Great Dane Airlines has launched twice-weekly (Mondays and Thursdays) services from Aalborg (AAL) to Edinburgh (EDI) on 27 June. According to OAG Schedules Analyser the route will be flown by the airline’s 118-seat ERJ-195 aircraft, covering a distance of 818 kilometres. Commenting on the carrier’s first ever route launch was Søren Svendsen, CEO, Aalborg Airport: “From Aalborg Airport’s point of view, Great Dane Airlines has located an unfulfilled market potential for both leisure and business traffic – in terms of a medium aircraft capacity, which match the demand for a direct route to Edinburgh”.
