Inside the £40k VIP trip to Baku to see Denmark vs Czech Republic including private jet flight with caviar and open bar

YOU'LL have to be bringing home plenty of Danish bacon to join an incredible flight of fantasy to see Denmark play the Czech Republic in Saturday's Euro 2020 quarter-final.

A few Danes struggling to make the 5,000-mile trip to Azerbaijan capital Baku have already paid the £40,000 fee for a private plane, including caviar, gourmet three-course meal and open bar, plus match tickets.

Herning Helicopters says "six happy fans" have signed up for the Danish company's grandiose package that costs about £50 MORE than the country's average annual salary.

Putting it another way, there are a sprinkling of homes available to buy in North East England or Scotland for as little as £25k.

And the average weekly wage in the Premier League is £60k.

Two days after Herning advertised the trip on Facebook, report company owner Stephan Erlandsen as saying: "It's about capturing ideas and surprising. 

"The Danish mood has been lifted. Even I, who work all the time and don't watch a lot of football, am fascinate 

"On the same day the notice was posted, the trip was sold. 


"The VIP trip will last five hours and will depart Copenhagen for Azerbaijan on Friday.

"The price is 350,000 crowns (47,000 euros) and for the moment you will have six happy fans on board. 

"It's a bunch of middle-aged gentlemen. They didn't sound like boring guys, so they'll probably go nuts on the way." 

Denmark's voyage to the last eight has captured the hearts and minds of not just their countryman but also Europe after star man Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest in their opening group game, a 1-0 loss to Finland.  

The Danes also lost to Belgium 2-1 but recovered to qualify for the last 16 with a thrilling 4-1 defeat of Russia.

Denmark then dispatched Wales 4-0 to set up their first Euros' quarter-final since a 3-0 defeat to the Czechs in 2004.
