SAS is investing in the future and strengthening its offer to Scandinavian frequent flyers. In line with plans to expand its long haul fleet already published, SAS is announcing today a new direct route from Copenhagen to Miami.
We know that our frequent flyers want flexible travel with a good timetable and daily departures. These new direct routes together with the renewal of our long haul fleet and our broad network, mean we have far and away the strongest offer between Scandinavia and the USA. We are looking forward to offering our customers new travel opportunities and giving them a warm welcome onboard our aircraft,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS.
Opens in 2016
Miami is an attractive destination for Scandinavian travelers, especially in the winter months. It is also the number one cruise liner port in the world and an important trade center. There are good connections from Miami for passengers wishing to travel onwards to other destinations. The first flights to Miami are expected to lift off in fall 2016 and the Miami route will have 3 weekly departures from Copenhagen.
“Miami is an exciting addition to our route map. Firstly Scandinavians will get direct access to a much demanded leisure destination and secondly the route also paves the way for more American tourists choosing Denmark as their destination. Therefore, the Danish tourism industry will also benefit from this route in the form of increased revenue and more Danish jobs,” said Peter Krogsgaard, CCO, Copenhagen Airports A/S.
