SAS increases US flights as travel demand returns

Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) announced it is to increase the number of flights to the United States, citing a boom in air travel demand for the winter holiday period.  

During Christmas and New Year, SAS is offering up to 100 flights per week from Scandinavian countries to the United States. SAS will increase weekly operations to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Washington DC and Miami.

The increase in flight frequencies to the US was a “direct result of the US opening to more visitors” from Europe, the carrier announced in a statement on November 10, 2021.

Karl Sandlund, Chief Commercial Officer at SAS, said: “It is very gratifying that we can increase the number of flights and offer our customers the chance to finally be able to travel again and experience the other side of the Atlantic, and meet with friends and family.”
