SAS announces new route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen
SAS is opening a year-round route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen. The first flight will be in January 2020. Big demand from leisure travelers in Denmark and a more attractive timetable with daily flights mean that the route will be part of the flight program from the new year.
Big demand from customers in Denmark and North Europe, and a timetable from six to seven departures a week were some of the deciding factors behind opening the route from Copenhagen. There will be daily departures from Copenhagen Airport starting in March.
“By opening a year-round route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen we are increasing availability and enabling growth. The timetable is attractive, and thanks to the economies of scale we can achieve in fully utilizing our fleet, we are in a position to provide a daily service from Copenhagen Airport,” says Karl Sandlund EVP Commercial, SAS.
To date, SAS has operated the route from Stockholm to Los Angeles, but has now decided to relocate flights departing from the Swedish capital to the Danish capital in the new year.
“Los Angeles is one of the most in-demand intercontinental routes from Copenhagen, and an important route for our leisure customers in particular, who are keen to visit the American West Coast. We continuously assess our offering in order to optimize our network for our travelers,” says Karl Sandlund.
Flights from Copenhagen to Los Angeles can be booked from 3 September 2019. The first flight departs 13 January 2020.
Passengers with already purchased tickets from Stockholm to Los Angeles, will be rebooked via Copenhagen.
The new time schedule for the route starting January 13th:
Flight SK931 departs from CPH 09:35 and arrives in Los Angeles 12:15 the same day.
Flight SK932 departs from Los Angeles 14:00 and arrives in CPH 10:10 the day after.
Starting on March 31st there will be daily departures from Copenhagen.
