On Wednesday (May 12, 2021), SAS announced the restart of twice-weekly service between Oslo and New York-Newark (EWR) starting July 3, 2021. The carrier will offer flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays and the route will be serviced with a 266-seat Airbus A330. SAS originally suspended the route on March 13, 2020 due to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic. The route will provide seamless onwards connections via Newark Liberty International Airport’s many transfer options. From Copenhagen, SAS will also continue to offer service to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington.

In Wednesday’s announcement, SAS’ Executive Vice President and Norway Director, Kjetil Håbjørg, said,

“SAS is very pleased to be able to resume direct intercontinental routes with an attractive schedule from Oslo. Many people are looking forward to visiting family and friends in the USA and our customers have been requesting this route in particular. The New York route will also be important for Norwegian fish exports.”

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.
