Strong demand for SAS' Asian routes
Thursday, August 21, 2008: SAS Scandinavian Airlines has noted a growing interest for its upcoming winter program, which offers a new route to Delhi and the return of two popular seasonal routes: Copenhagen-Dubai and Stockholm-Bangkok.
"We are really looking forward to add Delhi to our intercontinental route network this October, and there is great interest amongst both business and leisure travelers," says Lars Sandahl Sørensen, Chief Executive Officer, SAS International. "Along with our two returning seasonal routes, we offer a dynamic and highly competitive winter program and very attractive fares."
Dubai, which was a new destination for SAS last year, quickly became one of its most popular long-haul routes and demand is already strong for this season. Both Dubai and Delhi will be served three times weekly from Copenhagen, while there will be a total of eight flights a week to Bangkok - five weekly from Copenhagen and three weekly from Bangkok.
SAS´ winter program comes into effect October 27, and lasts until end of March.
Other Asian destinations include Beijing (10 flights a week; daily from Copenhagen and three weekly from Stockholm) and Tokyo (six weekly from Copenhagen). SAS also offers 84 flights a week between Scandinavia and the US.
