SAS to Launch Direct Flights Between Stavanger and Manchester, England

SAS has unveiled plans to launch direct flights between Stavanger and Manchester, England on 8 November 2019.

SAS will operate the flights two times per week on Mondays and Fridays with Boeing 737 aircraft.

SAS has steadily expanded its direct services to Manchester in line with the increase in demand for trips to the British Isles and the interest in English football in particular. Football clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United have large groups of supporters in Norway and direct flights to Manchester Airport make it easy to get to the big football fixtures in the region quickly.

“There is tremendous interest in English football and now SAS is creating additional opportunities for even more Norwegians to be able travel to see their favourite teams in action in the famous stadiums, in a way that is fast and convenient,” said Torbjørn Wist, financial director at SAS. “We are the airline with the most flight connections between Scandinavia and Manchester.”

SAS also flies to Manchester from Oslo and Bergen, as well as several daily flights between Oslo and London. SAS has a total of 49 flights a week to Manchester from Scandinavia in its winter schedule.

“We have been fascinated by Liverpool’s sporting success and the popular arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjær at Manchester United and this has obviously inspired many Norwegians to travel to the matches. We are delighted to be able to respond to this by introducing so many direct flights with SAS,” said Torbjørn Wist.
