On May 23rd SUN-AIR/British Airways opened a new scheduled service between Prague and Billund. So far with two weekly departures. During the month even more charter flights have been announced. The peak season will be very busy with e.g. 33 departing charter flights each Saturday. On Saturday June 18 we expect a total of 36 charter flight departures including a number of flights to the Le Mans Race. This is a record number of charter flights in one day from Billund.
