Scandinavian Airlines has announced it will stop its service from Humberside to Copenhagen, only five months after it was launched.

The flight was introduced to try and strengthen the renewable energy links with Scandinavia, as the industry grows in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

But the airline says not enough people have used the service. A spokesperson said:

"I can confirm SAS has decided to cease operating its route between Humberside and Copenhagen from 6 April 2014.

"Unfortunately, passenger demand for the route was not as high as anticipated, which made it unsustainable to continue flying from Humberside. We thank the local region and Humberside airport for their support.

"SAS services from the UK to Copenhagen continue to operate from London Heathrow, Aberdeen, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Leeds Bradford (from 31 March)."
