SAS is increasing the number of departures from
Stockholm to Chicago as well as from Copenhagen to Shanghai

“The Scandinavian market is demanding flexible
travels with good schedules and frequent departures. These new
departures together with our upgraded long haul fleet and
extensive network mean we have an incredibly strong service offer
to both the USA and Asia that we intend to further strengthen in
the near future. We look forward to offering our customers new
travel opportunities and giving them a warm welcome aboard both
our new aircraft and aircraft with our new cabins,” said SAS
President and CEO, Rickard Gustafson.
