New nonstop service announced: Boston to Copenhagen and Oslo starts May 2016

CopenhagenLast week Boston Magazine reported that a new low-cost air carrier from Europe will begin offering nonstop service in May 2016 to Oslo and Copenhagen with plans to add more destinations in the near future. The previously unknown carrier, Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, will bring more competition to these markets and greater access to Eurpoe with more nonstop flights.

For those of you who may be tempted, Copenhagen Pride is August 11 -15, 2016. There is more info about gay life in Denmark and in particular Copenhagen here.

Oslo Pride dates have yet to be confirmed but their celebration was held in late June this year.  For more travel information about gay life in Oslo link here.
