Broward County will have its first Scandinavian flights starting in the fall of 2013.
Talks with Norwegian Air started four years ago, and on Friday the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport announced flights to and from Copenhagen and Stockholm. The first Copenhagen flight begins Nov. 29, followed by Stockholm on Dec. 1. Both routes will run four days a week.
Though Scandinavia is a significant tourism market for Broward, FLL has not had service to and from the region from a major carrier.
“We’ve had a few charters. This is our first regular service,’’ said Steve Belleme, business development manager at the airport. “It’s a huge market for Broward. Scandinavians love Fort Lauderdale and they love the beaches.”
