The Danish Board of Health has confirmed that a Dane has contracted Influenza A or swine flu.
The Board Director Jesper Fisker says that the patient is a woman from the capital island of Zealand, who contracted the disease during a visit to New York.
Fisker said the woman was on a direct Continental Airways flight from New York to Copenhagen, which landed at Copenhagen Airport at 07.35 on Wednesday of this week.
The Board will be contacting all others on the flight in question.
