SAS Scandinavian Airlines is gradually returning to a network more in line with what it was before the pandemic. The company has decided to increase the number of flights with the lightening of the sanitary protocols of travel and thus, the resumption of traffic.
SAS has just revealed what its network will be like from this autumn. The airline will operate over 160 direct routes to 90 destinations from October. In detail, this programme will include 57 destinations from Copenhagen, its main hub. But also 52 destinations from Stockholm-Arlanda and 47 destinations from Oslo. SAS also connects a handful of domestic and international destinations from Bergen, Gothenburg, Stavanger and Trondheim.
Paris, Brussels, Geneva and Nice in French-speaking Europe
Among the new services, the takeover of the domestic route between Stockholm-Arlanda and Sundsvall in September enables the Scandinavian carrier SAS to complete its Swedish network. SAS now serves all airports in Sweden as well as all those in Norway.
In addition, the carrier is resuming flights in Europe to Amsterdam, Krakow, Dublin, Florence and Prague. SAS will also be expanding its services to major European capitals. From Paris-CDG, SAS offers nine weekly flights to Copenhagen (one daily and one additional flight on Fridays and Sundays). The French capital also benefits from a daily flight to Oslo and Stockholm.
The carrier also offers several weekly frequencies from the three Scandinavian capitals to Nice and several daily flights to Brussels. It also links Geneva to Copenhagen.
The United States in the spotlight
On the long-haul side, the Asia schedule remains minimal. Bangkok, Delhi, Hong Kong, Beijing and Singapore are still not on the carrier’s schedule this winter. The airline only operates flights between Copenhagen and Shanghai and Tokyo.
However, the network to the United States has improved. Copenhagen has routes to six US cities. In September, the airline will launch three weekly flights to Boston with an Airbus A321LR. This will be the first time the carrier has offered a transatlantic flight with this aircraft. The carrier is also increasing its frequencies in September to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington. Also in September, the airline re-launches its Stockholm-New York (Newark) route.
In October, SAS resumed flights to Miami from the three Scandinavian capitals. Copenhagen and Stockholm will receive three weekly frequencies, while Oslo will receive one flight a week. Finally, the carrier, which already serves Copenhagen-Chicago on a daily basis, announces the resumption of the Stockholm-Chicago route during the autumn.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
