SAS to open routes from Stockholm to Dubrovnik and Antalya
In the middle of winter, many people long for sunshine and warmth.
Today, SAS is presenting two new summer destinations – Dubrovnik and Antalya.Dubrovnik on the Croatian coast has gained rapidly in popularity. The city has a heritage from the fourth century, and its historic city center is surrounded by massive walls. The climate is pleasant, with many hours of sunshine.
The southern coast of Turkey around Antalya has in recent years become a favorite destination among Swedes. Turkey has plenty of sunshine, and price levels are attractive to Swedes. The beaches are long, and the golf courses green.
The service to Dubrovnik will operate on Wednesdays between July 1 and August 12, while the service to Antalya will operate on Tuesdays between June 23 and August 11. Some of the seats onboard have already been sold to tour operators that will resell them in various charter packages.
Because SAS offers one-way tickets, it is possible to combine Dubrovnik with Split and Antalya with Istanbul, which are destinations also served by SAS directly from Stockholm.
Other new summer services are Stockholm – Malta and last year’s new service´s Stockholm – Zagreb and Ängelholm – Nice, which will return. SAS is also increasing the number of departures during the peak summer season to Malaga, Nice and Palma de Mallorca. The price for a one-way ticket always starts at SEK 700, including fees.
“SAS makes vacation travel fast and easy, and travelers are able to choose the length of their trip themselves. We know that people value their time highly. SAS flies directly, offers Internet check-ins and a fast track through the security check for travelers in Economy Extra,” says Tobias Jönsson, acting commercial manager at SAS in Sweden.
