On Thursday (February 9, 2023), SAS announced the inauguration of their new route between Copenhagen (CPH) and New York (JFK), complementing existing service between Scandinavia and New York-Newark (EWR). The route will be operated five times weekly on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with an Airbus A321neoLR, with frequencies expanding to daily service for summer 2023. SAS operates into Terminal 7 at New York-JFK. With increasing demand, SAS continues to expand frequencies to U.S. destinations, and will operate around 130 weekly departures to 12 U.S. gateways this winter.

In today’s route announcement, SAS’ President & CEO, Anko van der Werff, said,

We are delighted to inaugurate our new route to JFK. SAS already offers a solid product to Newark Airport from Scandinavia, and we believe that this addition to JFK from Copenhagen will strengthen the New York offer to our customers. The US is a strategic market for SAS, and we will continue to develop new routes and destinations.”

SAS’ A321neoLR is configured for 157 guests, with 22 fully lie-flat Business, 12 Plus, and 123 Go (Economy) seats.

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 is celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2022.
