Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has confirmed it will launch a new route from Stockholm to Bangkok at the end of October 2007. This route will be operated three times a week in both directions in addition to the already existing service between Copenhagen and Bangkok.

"Bangkok is one of Asia's most important cities and a highly attractive destination for business travel and also for leisure travelers. Additional frequencies to Bangkok has been sought after by our customers and we are really pleased to meet this request" said Lars Sandahl, Chief Commercial Officer, Scandinavian Airlines International.

The launch of this route is part of SAS's new strategy which, using a dynamic traffic program, makes it possible to offer customers more flexible and individual solutions. The route between Stockholm and Bangkok will lead to quicker and more convenient connections for both the Swedish and the Norwegian markets, since the departure schedule has been specially adapted also for connections to and from Oslo.

SAS will continue to operate Copenhagen to Bangkok with the usual high frequency.

SAS has had a partnership with Thai Airways for many years. Thai Airways flies from Bangkok to many key destinations within Thailand, Southeast Asia and Australia. Based on this partnership, SAS offers the Scandinavian market connections to numerous destinations in Thailand, Singapore and South East Asia.

This means that with only one stop, both business travelers and tourists can easily reach their destination. Passengers need only check in once for their entire journey since baggage is checked in to the final destination. SAS Euro Bonus members will be able to make use of the usual Star Alliance benefits, including the ability to earn and use Euro Bonus points on both airlines, lounge access, etc.

The Bangkok route will be operated using an Airbus 340, with all Business Class seats equipped with SAS's comfortable Business Sleepers.
