“It is very gratifying for SAS that we can now resume intercontinental direct routes with an attractive timetable from Oslo. Many are looking forward to visiting family and friends in the United States and our customers have requested this particular route. The New York route will also be important for Norwegian fish exports, ” says Executive Vice President and Norwegian CEO Kjetil Håbjørg.
