Two “cultural capitals” will be linked by a new scheduled air service between Yorkshire and Scandinavia.
Danish airline Sun-Air, a partner of British Airways, will begin twice weekly services between Hull and Denmark’s Billund (Aarhus South).
Hull is the UK City of Culture next year, and Aarhus is European Capital of Culture.
Martin Green, CEO of Hull 2017, said, ”We’re committed to working closely with Aarhus and sharing ideas. This direct connection is key for Hull’s cultural and business links.”
Rebecca Matthews, CEO of Aarhus 2017, said, ”Hull 2017 is a very strong and exciting partner for us, and I hope that many people in our cities and the surrounding regions will use this great opportunity to visit each other, both for culture and business purposes.”
