Chairman unveils new operator of Central Jutland Airport

It will be the Dutch airline AIS Airlines, which from Monday 2 October will operate the route
between Midtjylland Airport and Copenhagen Airport

As the chairman of Central Jutland Airport, Ulrik Wilbek, was able to announce on Tuesday 5
September, a new operator has now been found for the route between Central Jutland Airport
and Copenhagen Airport.

Dutch AIS Airlines will take over the flights from 2 October 2023.

– I look forward to the collaboration with AIS Airlines. In the time DAT has flown the route
since the re-opening of Midtjylland Airport on 17 April, passenger numbers have continuously
improved, and therefore I have no doubt that there is a need for the route in the long term.
Conversely, I also do not want to hide the fact that the turbulence of the past year has been
bad for the airport. The business world needs a route they can trust, and therefore it is
absolutely essential to ensure peace of mind about the route and the airport, says Ulrik Wilbek.

Smaller aircraft

It also means that capacity and needs must be matched better than has been the case, and
will therefore use smaller aircrafts. AIS Airlines plans to use a Jetstream 32 with a capacity of 19 passengers.

– This may of course mean that you have to be out early to get a seat on certain departures,
but I believe that the most important thing is that we can report that the majority of
departures are sold out, says Ulrik Wilbek.

Nicole Scheffer, Chief Commercial Officer of AIS Airlines, expressed her enthusiasm for the
new route, saying, “We are delighted to introduce this Karup-Copenhagen route, which will
offer travelers a convenient and efficient way to connect two important cities in Denmark. We
understand the importance of providing accessible and reliable air travel options, and this
route is a testament to our dedication to meeting the needs of our passengers.”

This milestone marks a significant step in AIS Airlines’ commitment to expanding its network
and enhancing connectivity for travelers in Denmark and beyond.

AIS Airlines will operate the route 5 times a week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday.

The flight schedule will be as follows:

Monday to
PNX 57107.00 LT07.50PNX 57208.30 LT09.20
