SAS has announced that it will begin a new daily flight between Boston and Copenhagen from the end of March 2016. This will further increase convenience for regular flyers and enhance the service that is provided between North America and Scandinavia.
This will make SAS the first airline to link Boston and Scandinavia by a direct flight. The new service will begin on March 29, 2016, and will operate throughout the year. The addition of this flight will take the number of services the airline provides between the US and Scandinavia next year to 6,600.
The service will be operated on a Boeing 737-700 BBJ, which provides 86 seats: 66 Go seats and 20 seats in business. It is mainly directed at business customers who are traveling between the two hubs. Businesses operating in both regions have been seeking such a service for a while to enable them to travel quickly and conveniently and arrive at their accommodation feeling refreshed and ready to work.
The flight is timed to offer good connections at both destinations, allowing passengers to travel to further points in the US and Northern Europe with a minimal amount of hassle. The Copenhagen-to-Boston service will depart at 12:50, with the return journey leaving Boston at 17:30.
Other direct services to the US that SAS will begin in 2016 include Oslo to Miami, Copenhagen to Miami, and Stockholm to Los Angeles. They already provide services from Scandinavia to Washington, D.C., New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.
