SAS OPENS NEW ROUTE TO BANGKOK
SAS is continuing to strengthen its offer and to accommodate an increased demand for leisure travel, SAS will now open a new route to Bangkok, Thailand. Following this route expansion travelers will be able to fly direct to Bangkok three times weekly with convenient overnight flights in both directions using the Airbus A350 aircraft.
First departure is planned from Copenhagen on the 30th of October 2023.
“Thailand and the Scandinavian countries have a long history of friendship and cooperation and returning with a direct route after nine years is a true pleasure. The Bangkok route will offer a perfect entry point for wider Thailand and be a great option for both business and leisure travelers. Bangkok is a vibrant meeting point for international businesses and the country has topped several rankings as the world's most popular tourist destination with its beautiful beaches, lush jungles and extraordinary Thai cuisine. Regardless of reason to travel, we are excited to once again offer a direct connection between Scandinavia and the Land of Smiles,” says Anko van der Werff, President & CEO of SAS.
While many people enjoy the natural beauty of the country and the many opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, and sunbathing, Thailand is also known for its rich culture and history. Numerous temples, palaces and other historical sites can be found throughout Bangkok and the rest of the country.
As part of the Winter 2023/2024 program, SAS will also continue its three-times weekly services to Tokyo Haneda (HND) and Shanghai (PVG).
