New flights to this summer's hottest destinations
Verona, Sarajevo, Genoa and Beirut are among the new summer destinations for SAS in response to the increased interest in leisure travel. In addition, all the major airports around Scandinavia will see increased traffic to key cities making it quicker and easier to reach perennial holiday favorites with the new A320neo.
Also access to the popular Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur with beautiful St Tropez is getting easier since Toulon is another new summer destination.
Spain figures prominently in the new schedules from all over Scandinavia, which will be particularly welcome among regular fliers to the region. From Stockholm Arlanda, there will be more frequent non-stop flights to Palma and Malaga, and from both Malmö and Skellefteå there will also be flights to Malaga.
Alicante will be served directly from Bodø and there will also be a new direct route to Majorca from Aarhus in Denmark.
Elsewhere the summer schedule reintroduces Gazipasa from Arlanda, making it easier to take a holiday in for example Alanya while other routes reflect a hunger from customers to discover new cities, such as Beirut and Sarajevo.
“We continue to strengthen our offer for leisure travel during the summer period. In addition to a number of exciting news, we also increase presence on our most popular destinations,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS Group.
In more detail, from Arlanda there will be non-stop flights to Verona, Gazipasa, Alanya, Örnsköldsvik, and Birmingham, along with expanded departures to Palma, Lisbon, Malaga and Rome.
Oslo meanwhile, will be served by non-stop flights to Thessaloniki, Prague, Genève, Warsaw and Aarhus as well as additional flights to Athens, Düsseldorf and Manchester. Elsewhere in Norway, Bergen-Pula, Stavanger-Pula, Bodø-Alicante and Trondheim-Split have also been added.
From Denmark, Copenhagen will offer non-stop flights to Beirut, Toulon, Sarajevo, Lisbon, Genoa and Gazipaza, along with more frequent flights to Zurich, Rome and Aarhus. Aarhus meanwhile will offer direct services to Malaga, Nice, Oslo, Stockholm, Munich, Mallorca and Split.
