North America is an important and growing market for SAS. A large number of international and Scandinavian companies have expressed a desire for a direct service between the U.S. West Coast and Scandinavia. The company will offer this new route, with six weekly frequencies from San Francisco to Copenhagen.
“SAS is always looking to serve markets where there is high demand from Scandinavian travelers traveling to, from and within Scandinavia. We see a favorable market situation in North America and a particularly strong demand in the growth areas of San Francisco and the U.S. West coast. The new route will benefit business and leisure travelers, Scandinavian imports and exports, and the route has been highly sought after by the Scandinavian business community”, said Stefan Larsson, General Manager Americas for SAS.
