easyJet, the largest operator at Bristol Airport, has today celebrated its inaugural flight to the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
Passengers were taken by surprise and put in the mood for their trip by a themed check-in area where the delicious pastries were served.
And one lucky Bristol traveller won a pair of return flights for their next journey to the popular city break destination.
The four-times weekly flight will fly directly to Copenhagen each Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, appealing to both business and leisure passengers alike.
One-way flights from Bristol to Copenhagen start from £24.99, including taxes.
Copenhagen has repeatedly been recognised as one of the cities with the best quality of life, and is also considered one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world.

Later this month passengers from Bristol will be able to fly direct to Aberdeen with bmi regional.
The twice daily flights start on Monday, October 29.
This summer has been one of the busiest for Bristol Airport when passenger numbers topped a record 650,000 for July.
The number of people passing through the terminal was up 5.1 per cent year on year, and surpassed the previous July high recorded back in 2008.
And in the past year more than four million passengers have used the terminal with more than 40,000 arrival and departure flights.
Bristol Airport and SSP, the food travel experts, have won an award from The Department of Work and Pensions for their support of a new programme to help unemployed adults in Bristol get back to work.
The BETEC Customer Services Award, which is part of the government funded Work Skills programme, aims to provide unemployed adults with the skills and qualifications they need to return to full time employment.
