Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) today announced further expansion of its UK network, with the launch of an additional flight from Aberdeen to Copenhagen, Denmark.
From 25 March 2007 the airline will operate double daily services from Aberdeen to Copenhagen using a 50 seat CRJ Cimber Jet aircraft. One-way fares start from £72 including taxes.
The new morning service will complement the existing SAS evening service and is being introduced due to a high demand for more frequent links between the Scottish oil capital and Copenhagen. The expansion of the service to Copenhagen also gives travellers greater opportunity to connect to SAS’ international network through the key SAS hub of Copenhagen, offering excellent links to Russia, the Baltic Countries, Germany, New York, Washington, Seattle, Chicago and Bangkok.

SAS will operate full business and economy services on all flights, in addition to its unique premium economy service, Economy Flex.
Economy Flex is a new way of travelling for business passengers, providing an efficient service including business class check in facilities and fully flexible fares with no restrictions. Economy Flex passengers are seated in a dedicated area between the business and economy sections, receive a complimentary meal with drinks and can earn extra frequent flyer points.
Lars-Ove Filipson, General Manager United Kingdom & Ireland, Scandinavian Airlines System said:
“SAS is delighted to be growing its services from Aberdeen to Copenhagen. During 2006 we have seen the demand for this route increase by more than a 20 per cent growth in passenger numbers and the success of the Aberdeen to Copenhagen route has brought about the need for a second daily service. Aberdeen is a key market in the energy sector and SAS looks forward to the further development of business and leisure traffic between the two cities."
Kevin Brown, customer services director at Aberdeen Airport said:
“Business links between Scotland and Scandinavia continue to grow and we welcome the launch of this additional service to Copenhagen which we hope will foster stronger business ties with the North-East. We are particularly pleased to see an internationally renowned airline such as SAS performing so well from Aberdeen. This is a welcome expansion of SAS’ services on what has proved to be a popular route for business and leisure travelers, both here and in Denmark.”
