The airline announced on Tuesday the opening of 180 direct routes from Scandinavia to Europe, once travel restrictions ease.
“Demand for air travel is increasing a little further down the line, especially to warmer destinations. SAS will therefore introduce more departures to several destinations around the Mediterranean. Even with the current tight travel restrictions due to Covid-19, there is hope that these will ease as vaccination rates increase and spread of infection in society goes down,” the airline said in an announcement.
SAS will increase the number of departures to Athens, Alicante, Malaga, Mallorca, Alanya, Nice and Rome.
Furthermore, it will open new routes with departures starting at Easter to:
- Chania (Crete) from Copenhagen and Oslo
- Barcelona from Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo
- Larnaca (Cyprus) from Stockholm and Copenhagen
- Faro (Algarve coast) from Oslo
SAS will increase capacity on all domestic routes accordingly, as well as within the Nordic and to major cities in Northern Europe, to meet an increase in demand for leisure as well as business travel.
SAS has also introduced more flexible rebooking options for international and domestic trips.
In addition, over the past year, the airline has launched a raft of measures and procedures to further ensure safe air travel.
