SAS expands with new direct routes to USA

Airline to open three routes to the USA in 2016
SAS says it will open three new direct routes to the USA in 2016 – Los Angeles from Stockholm, Miami from Oslo and Miami from Copenhagen.
The airline is also increasing the number of departures from Stockholm to both New York and Chicago and between Copenhagen and Shanghai. This means it will offer 330,000 additional seats on its intercontinental routes in 2016.
Nordic travellers can use Los Angeles to visit Southern California or onwards to destinations such as Hawaii. The first flight will depart on March 14. SAS will have daily departures there from Stockholm throughout the summer season and five to six departures a week in the winter season.
Miami is also a hub for traffic to the Caribbean and Latin America as well as being the world’s number-one cruise port. The first flights to Miami are expected to lift off in autumn 2016 with three flights a week each from Copenhagen and Oslo.
