SAS is to launch direct routes from Copenhagen to Delhi.
In the autumn, SAS will expand its intercontinental route network, which will also include India. Effective October 27, SAS will fly from Copenhagen to Delhi three times a week.
"India is currently one of the world's most exciting destinations, for business and leisure travelers," says Lars Sandahl Sørensen, President, SAS International. "Our new destination meets the strong demand among Scandinavian customers, particularly since Swedish and Scandinavian companies have been highly active in becoming established in India, primarily in the Delhi area. This new route is a direct response to satisfy their demands."
The new service will depart from Copenhagen on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, with return flights from Delhi on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The flight time is only seven and a half hours.
From Copenhagen, there are good connections to all SAS operated destinations in Scandinavia and Europe, including connections with flights to and from London.
SAS International will operate the route using an A340-300, which offers three service classes: Business, Economy Extra and Economy. All passengers have a personal screen with a wide range of movies, music channels and games. Audio/video-on-demand is available in Business and Economy Extra, making it possible to start, pause and stop the entertainment whenever you want.
SAS intercontinental flights offer one of the airline industry's most comfortable seats in Economy, while in Economy Extra, passengers have larger and broader seats. In Business, there is the SAS Business Sleeper, which becomes a bed at the push of a button.
