Palma de Mallorca, 29th october 2008. Spanair adheres to SAS policy towards Sterling passengers by which any empty seat available during today and tomorrow at the flight departure will be given to Sterling passengers holding a valid ticket (taxes excluded, same conditions as SAS). However, it needs to be highlighted that there are very limited seats available in flights from Spain to Scandinavia.

In light of the unfortunate situation that Sterling is going through, Spanair has decided to immediately deploy its largest aircraft, Airbus 321, to all routes with origin or destination Scandinavia. By doing this Spanair aims to help all Sterling passengers who are abroad and have no possibility to return home on their original flights.

In addition, Spanair is also currently evaluating possibilities to add flights wherever there is aircraft available, which means in the following days there will be new flights for sale on the routes Spanair operates during the winter time (more details in

• Copenhagen – Barcelona
• Copenhagen – Madrid
• Copenhagen – Málaga
• Stockholm – Barcelona
• Stockholm – Madrid

As of next summer season, Spanair will also add flights and frequencies as follows:

• Copenhagen – Barcelona: 1 additional daily frequency (going from 2 to 3 daily)
• Copenhagen – Málaga: 1 daily frequency (flying now daily + 2 daily flights on weekends)


Spanair was founded in 1986 and since April 2003 it has been part of the Star Alliance, a global network of the world's largest and most prestigious airlines.
