SAS Scandinavian Airlines International expands with more flights to Shanghai and New York

SAS Scandinavian Airlines International expands with more flights to Shanghai and New York Through cooperation within Star Alliance, SAS is to lease a Boeing 767 during the winter traffic program, from October 30, 2004 through March 26, 2005. This additional capacity means that SAS can fly daily to New York from Stockholm and Copenhagen, while increasing flights from Copenhagen to Shanghai from three to six days per week. From the beginning of February, we will be able to offer our customers an even better product, since we are installing the Internet on board all of our eleven Airbus 330/340s during the winter. SAS will be the first airline to offer Internet on board all long haul aircrafts. The United Airlines Boeing 767 will operate on the Copenhagen-Washington route. The flights will be operated on behalf of SAS, with a SAS flight number and SAS station service, and with a crew from United Airlines. The service is code-shared with United Airlines. This lease is conditional on the approval of the authorities.
