SAS presents its 2020 summer programme – 5 new destinations and 14 new direct routes
SAS is continuing to strengthen its seasonal offering and will be launching 14 new direct routes and 5 totally new destinations from Scandinavia in summer 2020 – Bari, Rhodes, Tivat, Zadar and Valencia. Tickets for the summer additions will be available on 30 September.
For summer 2020, SAS is offering new direct routes and destinations, as well as increasing the frequency of flights to some of the most popular destinations around southern Europe, around the Mediterranean.
“It’s great to see so many choosing to travel with SAS in the holiday season. We’re constantly developing our offering in line with what our passengers ask for. I’m proud that we can now present a strong offering for next summer with attractive, seasonal destinations for our passengers,” says Karl Sandlund, EVP Commercial, SAS.
The exciting summer additions from Copenhagen are Bari in Italy, Tivat in Montenegro and Zadar in Croatia - all three of these holiday gems being in the Adriatic - great for those who love the water as well as picturesque, historical surroundings. A fourth new destination from the Danish capital is the classic holiday resort of Rhodes in Greece.
At the same time, Spain is continuing to attract holidaymakers from Scandinavia, so SAS is starting a direct route from Oslo to Valencia. The interest in Spain is also continuing to grow in Denmark and Aarhus, and SAS is increasing the number of flights to Malaga, Palma (Majorca) and Alicante.
From Stockholm, SAS is increasing its frequency of flights and extending its season to Beirut, in response to demand from the many passengers who have discovered the city or who have an affiliation with the region. Luxembourg’s timetable from Arlanda is also expanding with more departures, making it a year-round destination.
The route from Oslo to Kyiv, Ukraine, which was introduced for autumn 2019, will also be continuing over the summer period, making it now a year-round direct route. The connections eastbound from Denmark are also improving when the flights from Copenhagen to Russian Sankt Petersburg start to operate again.
Many of the new routes will be served by Airbus 320neo, the market’s most fuel-efficient aircraft.
“We are working constantly on our offering, so that more people can travel with us, but with less impact on the climate. New aircraft with lower fuel consumption, investments in biofuel and our carbon dioxide compensation scheme for trips made by our Eurobonus members, are just a few examples of our ambitious plans to convert to more sustainable travel,” says Karl Sandlund.
