SAS Starts Direct Flights to Scandinavian Mountains

For the 2019-2020 winter season SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) is introducing direct flights from Copenhagen, Aalborg and London Heathrow to Scandinavian Mountains Airport, the new airport in Sälen/Trysil. The airport is close to around 250 ski slopes in Sweden and Norway so the new services will give snow lovers from Denmark, Southern Sweden and the UK easy access to Scandinavia’s leading winter sports area.

Flights from the UK will operate each way on Saturdays during the winter season, from December 28 2019 until Easter 2020. The two-hour flights will be operated using the new SAS Airbus 320neo aircraft.

With over 250 slopes at Skistar’s resorts within a 25-40 minute transfer from the airport, the new SAS services offer a new way to get to the Scandinavian ski resorts and mountain areas in Sälen and Trysil. SAS and SkiStar are also entering into a strategic partnership which will simplify the booking procedure for all components of a ski package including accommodation, transfers, ski passes and lessons.

The airline has also announced a new direct service between Stavanger and Manchester in response to the increase in demand for trips to the UK and the interest in English football in particular. The service will begin on November 8 2019 and operate all year round, with two departures a week, Monday and Friday. The service will be operated with Boeing 737 aircraft.

SAS also flies to Manchester from Oslo and Bergen, as well as operating several daily flights between Oslo and London. SAS will offer a total of 49 flights a week to Manchester from Scandinavia in its winter schedule. Details at: www.flysas.com
