More information about our summer traffic program 2024 available in SAS pressrelease.

To accommodate the rising demand for travel to the US and Asia, SAS is expanding its flight offerings and increasing capacity in the summer traffic program commencing on 31 March 2024.


  • The Copenhagen-New York (JFK) route will increase in frequency with up to two daily flights, both with Airbus A321LR. These additional flights will complement the existing daily Airbus A330 flights to New York-Newark Airport originating from each of the Scandinavian capitals.


  • The flights from Copenhagen to Boston will increase in frequency going from six times a week to daily service. The aircraft used for these flights will be the Airbus A350, which means there will be twice as many seats available. This enhancement not only ensures daily connectivity but also facilitates increased cargo transport between the two regions.


  • A fourth weekly flight will be added from Copenhagen to Toronto. There will be a new departure time from Copenhagen, making it easier to connect with flights to and from European and Scandinavian cities.


  • From 25 April 2024, there will be more flights to Asia. The routes to both Shanghai and Tokyo will increase from three to four times a week, significantly boosting seat and cargo capacity.
