Two airlines have recently announced plans to boost their capacity and introduce new routes this winter, linking cities in Europe and North America with Scandinavian regions.
SAS announces extended winter service
SAS is meeting customer demands by increasing the number of flights on some of its most popular routes as well as adding in new destinations. The increase in seats covers business and pleasure services, with daily flights in operation from both Stockholm and Copenhagen to Manchester.
This winter, the carrier will continue with a number of its summer routes, including a daily flight from Copenhagen to San Francisco. Customers will also see larger aircraft used on routes between London Heathrow and Stockholm, Oslo, and Copenhagen to help increase capacity.
The changes the airline is making to the winter schedule will result in more than 500,000 additional seats compared to last year. Flights into major hubs, such as London Heathrow, will provide ongoing connections for those travelling further afield.
More flights from Ryanair
In addition to the changes by SAS, Ryanair has confirmed that their service from London Luton to Copenhagen will be boosted to four services a day this winter. The airline currently operates three services daily, but an increase in demand has led to the inclusion of an additional flight.
These extra flights will enable more people to see the cultural and historical sights across the region. There are plenty of apartment rentals to be found in the key cities, including Copenhagen and Oslo, offering a great base for those who want to explore.
