SUN-AIR resumes British Airways’ flights between Manchester, UK and Billund, Denmark


British Airways flights, operated by Danish airline SUN-AIR, will restart between Manchester, UK and Billund, Denmark on 31 October 2022.

After a break of more than two years, the route will resume five times a week flown on SUN-AIR’s Dornier 328 Jet aircraft. Flights will operate on Monday mornings and in the evenings of the remaining weekdays.

SUN-AIR has been a franchise partner of British Airways since 1996. It independently operates flights on aircraft bearing British Airways’ livery.

The Danish airline suspended its scheduled flights in March 2020 due to the global pandemic. They resumed in September 2022 with the reintroduction of flights between Billund Airport and London City Airport. The restart of the Manchester route marks the latest milestone in the airline’s schedule resumption.

Niels Sundberg, CEO of SUN-AIR, said: “We are incredibly pleased to restart this route from Billund and offer our passengers a direct connection to Manchester with our well-known full-service product on behalf of British Airways. We’ll monitor the route closely and will look to increase frequency if we achieve the support on this service that we saw pre-pandemic."

Chris Fordyce, Head of Alliances at British Airways, said: “As the aviation industry continues to recover from the pandemic, it’s really encouraging to see SUN-AIR restarting routes that have been on hold. This route will offer even greater connectivity between Denmark and the UK, and we look forward to seeing its popularity return.”
