On Friday (July 9, 2021), SAS announced an increase in their flights schedule between Scandinavia and the U.S., with the carrier restoring their full network by autumn. In September, SAS’ first Airbus A321LR will takeoff from Copenhagen for Boston, while flight frequencies will also be increased to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington DC. Starting October 1, 2021, SAS will resume service to Miami from both Copenhagen and Stockholm, and by the end of October, Miami will be served daily from Scandinavia with three weekly flights each from Copenhagen and Stockholm, as well as one weekly flight from Oslo. Currently, SAS offers daily passenger flights and additional cargo-only flights between Copenhagen to Chicago, and will restart the Stockholm-Chicago route later this autumn.

In Friday’s announcement, SAS’ acting CEO, Karl Sandlund, said,

“We are delighted to improve the connectivity for both passengers and air freight to and from Scandinavia from all three capitals as the demand increases. From September 2, SAS will reintroduce the route Stockholm-New York, in addition to the current direct routes from Copenhagen and Oslo.”

Although travel restrictions are now easing, most countries still require various types of travel and test certificates. To help guests navigate the various destination entry requirements, SAS has developed a new digital platform, the SAS Travel Ready Center, which is available on the airline’s website. The SAS Travel Ready Center allows customers to view destination restrictions and upload travel certificates, which are then reviewed and verified by SAS. Travelers can then download their boarding pass electronically and go directly to the self-service line at the airport.

SAS has introduced more flexibility so customers can book travel with added peace of mind. Customers can rebook international flights up to 72 hours prior to departure free of charge. SAS Plus tickets can be rebooked and refunded and for domestic flights, SAS offers free rebooking up to an hour before departure with SAS Go Flex tickets. Additionally, the airline offers a 24-hour money-back guarantee for tickets booked directly through SAS. Guests traveling with SAS can be assured that the carrier has implemented a range of measures to ensure the health and safety of customers and team members throughout the journey.
