SAS to Launch Flights to Los Angeles and Miami

SAS has confirmed that it will launch three new direct routes to America in 2016.

The new routes are Los Angeles from Stockholm, Miami from Oslo and Miami from Copenhagen.

SAS will also increase the number of departures from Stockholm to New York and Chicago and between Copenhagen and Shanghai.

We know that our frequent flyers want flexible travel with a good timetable and daily departures. These new direct routes together with the renewal of our long haul fleet and our broad network, mean we have far and away the strongest offer between Scandinavia and the USA. We are looking forward to offering our customers new travel opportunities and giving them a warm welcome onboard our aircraft, said Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS.

The first flight to Los Angeles will leave on 14 March and SAS will have daily departures from Stockholm to Los Angeles throughout the summer season and five-six departures a week in the winter season.

The first flights to Miami are expected to take off in fall 2016 and the Miami route will have a daily departure from Scandinavia.

Tickets to Los Angeles go on sale today (20 August) and to celebrate the airline is offering tickets from EUR549.

Tickets to Miami will be available later this fall.

Increased Frequencies on Existing Long Haul Flights

In addition to the new routes, SAS is increasing the frequency of its long haul routes starting with the winter program. SAS will then offer daily flights on the following routes:

Copenhagen Shanghai (two additional departures each week) Stockholm Chicago (one additional departure each week) Stockholm New York (one additional departure each week) Oslo New York (one additional departure each week) Copenhagen San Francisco (one additional departure each week).

These new long haul routes and additional departures mean SAS will offer customers over 330,000 more seats on its intercontinental routes in 2016.

SAS currently offers long haul flights from Scandinavia to New York, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo.
