Following strong demand on all Scandinavian Airlines’ long-haul routes, SAS will deploy another A340 to add frequencies. As of October 2010, SAS will offer customers more flights to New York, Chicago, Bangkok and Dubai, informed BC SAS press service.

The demand amongst both business and leisure travelers has increased noticeably in recent months to all long-haul destinations and there is now an all time high cabin factor on the majority of routes.


“We see that customers are coming back strongly after a more moderate travel behavior during the past 18 months. For both the US and Asia, we are once again almost always full in our Business Class, even now in summer, while both Economy Extra and Economy also sells incredibly well. We have seen the customer demands, particularly among our business customers, and are therefore expanding,” says Marek Pedersen, SAS Scandinavian Airlines District Manager Latvia & East Europe.


Compared with previous winters, SAS will now fly daily to Bangkok, Chicago and New York from Copenhagen, as well as add frequencies Stockholm-New York and Copenhagen-Dubai.
