SAS flights to U.S. East Coast resumes after two days due to Hurricane Sandy
Scandinavian carrier SAS flights have now resumed to/from the East Coast of the United States. The airline announced the resumption of flights services after two days because of Hurricane Sandy.
Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the East Coast of U.S. on October 29 and continued for three days battering most parts of the country severely throwing air traffic and normal life into utter chaos.
The hurricane caused SAS flights services operating to/from airports in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen to remain cancelled for two days leaving 2,050 passengers stranded on either side of the Atlantic.
The airline said that it has now resumed normal flight operations from October 31 with two flights departing from Stockholm and Copenhagen to Newark.
The airline apologized to the passengers for inconveniences caused to them because of the disruption of flights services and offered all possible help to those affected. The airline has offered full refunds or rebooking opportunities to the affected passengers, as well as compensation for meals, hotels and phone calls.
