SAS Announces New Route from Copenhagen to Los Angeles

A340-300 | Scandinavian Airlines

SAS is opening a year-round route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen. The first flight will be on January 2020. Big demand from leisure travelers in Denmark and a more attractive timetable with daily flights mean that the route will be part of the flight program from the new year.

Big demand from customers in Denmark and North Europe, and a timetable from six to seven departures a week were some of the deciding factors behind opening the route from Copenhagen. There will be daily departures from Copenhagen Airport starting in March.

“By opening a year-round route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen we are increasing availability and enabling growth. The timetable is attractive, and thanks to the economies of scale we can achieve in fully utilizing our fleet, we are in a position to provide a daily service from Copenhagen Airport,” says Karl Sandlund EVP Commercial, SAS.

To date, SAS has operated the route from Stockholm to Los Angeles, but has now decided to relocate flights departing from the Swedish capital to the Danish capital in the new year. 

“Los Angeles is one of the most in-demand intercontinental routes from Copenhagen, and an important route for our leisure customers in particular, who are keen to visit the American West Coast. We continuously assess our offering in order to optimize our network for our travelers,” says Karl Sandlund.
