From the start of the SAS winter program in late October, SAS will fly twice daily to New York from Copenhagen to further reinforce its position as the number one Scandinavian carrier. The carrier will boost service with more than 60,000 seats between Copenhagen and New York in 2016. The additional evening departure will be operated by PrivatAir with a reconfigured Boeing 737 that has most recently flown the Stavanger-Houston route.
SAS is currently servicing Copenhagen-New York with a daily mid-day departure. The new SAS flight will also depart daily – except Tuesdays – at 18.25 from Copenhagen and return from New York at 22.55. Tickets go on sale on 16 September.
SAS will continue these double daily New York flights next year and so offer more than 60,000 extra seats between New York and Copenhagen in 2016, which corresponds to approximately 25 % increase.
The last flight from Stavanger will depart on 23 October returning in Stavanger on 24 October. SAS will do its utmost to make alternative arrangements for all customers who have flight bookings after these dates.
SAS will increase its capacity with approximately 20% from Stavanger to Copenhagen by switching aircraft type from CRJ900 to Airbus 320 and 321 on several departures.
