SAS launches eight more new routes

New routes are to year-round and seasonal destinations
SAS has announced more new routes, eight in total, for the summer 2016 timetable. They will provide nearly 600,000 more seats from Scandinavian airports next summer, the airline says, while more departures are also being added on several existing routes.
New year-round routes will launch from Copenhagen to Reykjavik, Vienna and Krakow, and from Stockholm to Gdansk. During the summer only, SAS will also fly from Stockholm to the Greek island of Mykonos, from Copenhagen to Faro in Portugal, from Aarhus to Palma de Mallorca, and from Stavanger to Paris.
SAS says it is providing over 100,000 more seats to and from vacation destinations during the peak summer season compared to last year.
As well as the new routes, the airline has an additional daily departure on five key business routes from Oslo from April. There will be flights to Aberdeen and Düsseldorf twice a day, to Brussels and Billund three times a day, and to Bodø eight times a day.
Including the new routes to the US, SAS is opening a total of 12 new routes from Scandinavian airports in 2016, providing 579,000 extra seats compared with last year. Ticket sales for the new summer routes begin tomorrow.
