SAS launches 34 new peak summer routes for 2014
SAS today announces 34 new peak summer routes for the summer 2014 timetable. This means that SAS will offer direct flights to new and exciting leisure destinations from all main airports and a number of regional airports in Scandinavia.The new routes in the summer 2014 timetable are mainly destinations in the Mediterrenean area and reflect the demand from SAS customers to be able to choose SAS direct flights when going on summer holiday.
“Customers who choose SAS when travelling on business trips should also have many options to fly with SAS on leisure trips. SAS offers more destinations and a greater frequency than any other Scandinavian airline, and we will continue to invest in our offering to our customers” says Joakim Landholm, Executive Vice President Commercial.
Some of the new destinations are Bastia on beautiful Corsica, surfers paradise Biarritz and the popular Croatian destinations Split and Pula. In addition, new routes to Pisa and Venice means that SAS now fly to 10 destinations in Italy and thereby offer more Italian destinations than any other airline in Scandinavia.
In 2013, SAS launched more than 50 new domestic and European routes, as well as the popular Copenhagen-San Francisco route. With the announcement today, adding more than 40 new routes for 2014, SAS has then launched nearly 100 routes in the past two years.
“Our improved competitiveness and increased productivity gives us the opportunity to open many new routes to serve our customers,” says Joakim Landholm, Executive Vice President Commercial.
The new routes will be on sale gradually from November 25, 2013.
