SAS to Resume Select Flights for Year-End Holiday Season

SAS has announced that it will resume flights on a number of routes over the holiday season in order to meet demand for travel to, from and within Scandinavia.

From mid-December to mid-January, SAS will fly all domestic routes in Norway and Sweden, as well as domestic routes in Denmark except for Billund.

The airline will continue to fly routes between the Scandinavian capitals and is reopening a number of routes to Europe.

Flights to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington and Shanghai will continue to operate.

In total, SAS will offer 129 routes to 82 destinations, including major cities such as Berlin, London, Paris, Rome and Athens.

From Norway, SAS is reopening direct routes between Norway and Europe, and will fly 20 direct routes to the continent.

The traffic program has been reduced compared with a normal year, and fewer tickets will be available than usual.

It is also important to note that the traffic program may be amended if travel restrictions are introduced which indicate that routes should be cancelled.
