New connection to Denmark – weekly flight to Billund Airport in Jutland
In 2017, a wide range of new flight connection are expected to open.
One has been advertised early. It is the rather unknown carrier Primera Air who will set out connecting the Portuguese capital with Denmark. And very unusually, the flight will connect to Billund Airport – BLL in Jutland (the 2nd largest airport in Denmark) and not to the much more well-known Copenhagen Airport.
Visit Legoland in Denmark
The new Danish connection will make visiting Legoland a much easier option for the Lisboetas to visit.
As from April 2017, the airline Primera Air offers weekly flights to Billund Lufthavn, the nextdoor neighbour of which is the original second-to-none world class Danish amusement part Legoland.
Legoland video from Billund – children can easily spend days in the amusement park.
By the end of 2016, Legoland is found in 8 countries, and 4 more theme parks are planned. The Billund Legoland opened in 1968, and Billund Airport was, in fact, also founded by Lego as the company air strip.
Nowadays Legoland is Denmark’s 2nd most popular tourist attraction only to be overshadowed by the Danish capital Copenhagen.
In connection with Legoland, hotels are available (with themed rooms) for a full Lego experience.
Tickets available from approx. 110 euro (one way)
Primera Air is part of Primera Travel Group Scandinavia AB, which also operates the travel agencies Heimsferdir in iceland, Solresor in Sweden, Matkavekka and Lomamatkat in Finland, Solia in Norway and Bravo Tours in Denmark.
