SAS Expands Winter Services with New Routes to Northern Scandinavia

Responding to the growing demand for winter adventures in the North, SAS is launching five new direct routes to Northern Scandinavia – Tromsø, Kiruna, Rovaniemi, and Scandinavian Mountain Airport Sälen-Trysil. These new routes will allow more travelers to experience the region’s renowned ski resorts, dog sledding excursions, and the magical northern lights during the upcoming winter season.

SAS, which already operates winter flights to Scandinavian Mountains Airport (SCR) from Copenhagen and Aalborg, will now add routes from Aarhus and London Heathrow. In addition, three new seasonal routes are being introduced: Copenhagen to Finnish Rovaniemi, Copenhagen to Swedish Kiruna, and London to Norwegian Tromsø.

The expansion doesn’t stop there. SAS is also increasing the frequency of flights to Tromsø, Longyearbyen/Svalbard, Luleå, and Åre-Östersund on existing routes from Copenhagen, Oslo, and Stockholm, enhancing connectivity to Northern Scandinavia.

“We see a significant rise in Europeans traveling to Northern Scandinavia during the winter season and we are very pleased to be able to increase our departures to this part of the world. Our winter program also includes improved connectivity between the US and Asia and our Scandinavian as well as European destinations,” said Erik Westman, Chief Revenue Officer at SAS.

For those Scandinavians looking to escape the cold, SAS is adding more flights to warmer destinations such as Gran Canaria, Tenerife, and Agadir. Bangkok will have a minimum of four weekly flights from Copenhagen throughout the season, increasing to five weekly from late December and daily from late January to early March. The US program is also expanding with daily flights from Copenhagen to Los Angeles and Boston, and double daily flights to New York (JFK and Newark), featuring improved schedules for better connectivity at JFK. Additionally, SAS will continue its new Copenhagen-Atlanta route with five weekly flights during the winter season.

As is customary each winter, SAS will focus on popular European ski destinations including Zürich, Genève, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Milan, and Munich, particularly during the winter holidays.
