“SAS’s commitment underlines their view that the Humber, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire region is a place to do business and this service will provide superb connectivity to Scandinavia and beyond.”

“Today is a major milestone, attracting Scandinavian Airlines to Humberside as we develop a range of convenient services for those five million passengers within an hour’s drive of the airport.”
