SAS to launch seven new winter routes, will continue other summer routes into the winter

Scandinavian Airlines-SAS (Stockholm) for the winter season is launching seven new routes, with four routes going to holiday destinations in Spain. At the same time, twenty summer routes will continue during the winter timetable. SAS has launched a total of 53 new routes in 2014. This winter, SAS
passengers can enjoy flying direct on the following routes: Copenhagen-Las Palmas, Aalborg-Malaga, Billund-Malaga, Gothenburg-Geneva, Bergen-Las Palmas, Oslo-Hamburg and Oslo-Vilnius.

SAS is continuing to expand its range of direct routes from Scandinavian airports to popular Spanish holiday destinations throughout the winter. Four of the new winter routes go to Malaga, capital of the Costa del Sol, and Las Palmas, capital of Gran Canaria.

SAS will be operating a total of 34 routes from Scandinavia to seven destinations in Spain.

Geneva, Vilnius and Hamburg

The winter timetable also offers other new routes. During the skiing season, passengers from Gothenburg can visit the Swiss Alps with a new direct flight to Geneva, while SAS passengers from Oslo can fly to Vilnius over the Christmas period. In addition to this comes the launch of the Oslo-Hamburg route, which is attractive both for business and weekend travelers.

Selected summer routes continue in winter

As well as launching the new winter routes, SAS will continue operating twenty routes from the summer timetable during the winter – either as year-round routes or as additional routes during the Christmas holidays. So passengers from the SAS hubs of Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen can take a city break in Barcelona over Christmas and New Year, for example.

More frequencies on routes to the US

In the winter timetable SAS adds several departures to US destinations. SAS increases from five to six weekly departures from Stockholm to New York and Chicago and also increases with two more departures each week from Oslo to New York.
