Attention Travel Agents: AgentSky Announces New Direct Routes to Scandinavia with SAS
SAS, a Star Alliance member, will have two new must-see destinations in Scandinavia to choose from this summer. In late April, Scandinavian Airlines are launching its brand-new direct routes from New York to Swedish Gothenburg (GOT) and to Aalborg (AAL), located in Denmark.
Both routes will be operated by SAS newcomer Airbus A321 Long Range, with 22 seats for Business, 12 seats for SAS Plus and 123 seats for SAS Go. SAS will be flying three times a week to both cities all summer. The flights will operate throughout the summer 2023 season and will return for the summer 2024 program.
“As part of SAS’ strategy to strengthen the regional offering in Scandinavia, we are pleased to add intercontinental routes from Gothenburg and Aalborg. We see a demand from secondary cities and are delighted to connect even more parts of the world. The Airbus A321 Long Range is a slightly smaller long-distance aircraft and perfect in size for servicing the regional markets. Having a comfortable way of traveling with fewer stops to exciting cities such as New York, is something we believe will be highly valued by our travelers,” says Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management.
The new routes complement SAS' other four routes to New York and SAS will offer a total of five daily departures from Scandinavia to New York.
According to SAS, Gothenburg and Aalborg are two hidden Scandinavian gems that are both perfect destinations for enjoying nature, sea, fresh seafood and unique light that has inspired artists for centuries.
Soak Up a Swedish Seaport Town of Gothenburg
Located on the beautiful west coast of Sweden, Gothenburg (Göteborg) is the largest non-capital city in the Nordics. And it's the perfect place for a city break whilst still enjoying the perks of the surrounding countryside. Get ready to explore the Gothenburg archipelago, enjoy fresh sea food, float down Dutch-style canals, and stroll down leafy boulevards.
Attracting thousands of tourists each a year, Gothenburg is a Swedish town with a whole lot of character. Home to ancient neighborhoods, original buildings, and canal-side paths, Gothenburg is ideal for those who like to combine city breaks with nature.
When you’re not visiting the traditional neighborhood of Haga, home to original wood buildings and candlelit pubs, you’ll likely be strolling through Gothenburg Botanical Gardens, riding rollercoasters at the Liseberg amusement park, or visiting the free zoo in Slottsskogen gardens.
