SAS to drop three routes from Copenhagen

Flights to Moscow, Tel Aviv and Ankara did farewell
As more new long-haul routes are being scheduled for the coming year, shorter routes seem to be disappearing. SAS says it will drop its year-round flights to Moscow and Tel Aviv and its seasonal flights to Ankara.
The Moscow route has clearly struggled under Russia economic crisis, SAS spokeswoman Trine Kromann-Mikkelsen explains to Check-in.
“We have unfortunately had weak growth in Moscow, which means that we can’t maintain it. We will keep St Petersburg from Copenhagen and we still have departures to Moscow from Stockholm.”
Tel Aviv route, which resumed in 2012 after a ten-year absence, is suffering from intense competition.
“Tel Aviv is an expensive route to operate in stiff competition and we don’t have sufficient profitability to keep it. We can also see that political instability is affecting the route,” Kromann-Mikkelsen says.
SAS will also drop six seasonal routes from Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo.
