SAS is to launch four new routes this year, whilst adding frequencies on three routes. The new routes are to Lyon (France), Vilnius (Lithuania), Bardufoss (Norway) and Visby (Sweden).

"It is time for SAS to expand again. During 2009 we cut capacity to adjust our offerings to the lowered demand in the market, but now we are pleased to once again open up new routes and offer our customers even more destinations and frequencies. No other airline in Northern Europe can compete with our extensive network and attractive schedules," said Lars Sandahl Srensen, Chief Commercial Officer, SAS Scandinavian Airlines.

The Vilnius flights will commence 11 January and be operated twice daily via Copenhagen, whilst Lyon, which will commence 6 April, and Visby are daily flights, and Bardufoss six times weekly. Both Bardufoss and Visby are seasonal routes, with Bardufoss via Oslo operated between 31 May to 29 August, and Visby via Stockholm between 6 June and 5 September. Both seasonal routes are due to return for the summer program 2011.

Besides the new routes, a number of existing routes are getting increased frequencies. As of 1 February, there will be 13 daily flights between both Copenhagen and Stockholm (now 12 daily) and Copenhagen and Oslo (now 12 daily). As of 6 April, one daily frequency between Copenhagen and Brussels will be added, totaling five per day, and Copenhagen-Bologna becomes double daily.
