SAS Announces Spring and Summer Schedule With 180 Direct Routes Between Scandinavia and Europe
SAS will offer 180 direct routes between Scandinavia and Europe in their spring and summer travel programs, with new service including Stockholm-Barcelona, Oslo-Faro and Copenhagen-Larnaca.
On Tuesday (February 9, 2021), SAS announced their spring and summer 2021 flying program which will include 180 direct routes between Scandinavia and Europe, assuming travel restrictions are eased. The carrier will also offer new routes including Stockholm-Barcelona, Oslo-Faro and Copenhagen-Larnaca. With future demand increasing, particularly to warm destinations, SAS also plans on adding more frequencies to popular Mediterranean hotspots. Capacity will be increased on all domestic routes, as well as within the Nordic, and to major cities in Northern Europe to meet increasing leisure and business demand.
Over the last year, SAS has introduced numerous health and safety measures to ensure the health and safety of guests and team members through their ‘SAS Safe Travel’ program. The airline has also introduced more flexible rebooking options, allowing travelers to cancel international trips within 72 hours of departure and receive a voucher valid as payment for any SAS destination. For domestic travel in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, customers holding SAS Go Flex tickets can rebook for free up to one hour prior to departure, while SAS Plus tickets are both re-bookable and refundable. Additionally, the carrier offers a 24 hour money back guarantee if customers have booked their travel through SAS.
For Spring and summer, SAS has increased frequencies to Alicante, Malaga, Mallorca, Alanya, Nice, Rome and Athens. Just in time for Easter the carrier is also launching new routes to Barcelona (from Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo), Larnaca in Cyprus (from Stockholm and Copenhagen), Chania in Crete (from Copenhagen and Oslo) and Faro on the Algarve coast from Oslo.
SAS is the leading airline in Scandinavia, normally carrying over 30 million passengers annually from its main hubs in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to 125 destinations in Europe, the US and Asia (pre-pandemic figures). The company has targeted a reduction in carbon emissions by 25 percent by 2025 compared to 2005 levels and hopes to transition to 100% biofuel for domestic flights by 2030. SAS also offers ground handling services, technical maintenance and cargo services. The carrier is a founding member of the Star Alliance, which offers an extensive global network.
