Scandinavian Airlines or SAS has decided to attract business travellers in a big way with the launch of year-round flights to Boston from Copenhagen. The new service will begin early next year.
A spokesperson of SAS said that the flights between the two cities would start operating from March 29, 2016. The airline will deploy a narrow-body Boeing 737 aircraft for operating the daily service.
According to the airline, the customers booking business class tickets to Boston from Copenhagen would be offered 20 seats. However, those travelling in Go economy class would be offered a total of 66 seats. The outbound flight SK927 will make its departure from Copenhagen at 12:50 hours and reach Boston at 15:20 hours. The return flight SK928 will depart from Boston at 17:30 hours and arrive in Copenhagen at 07:00 hours next day.
Rickard Gustafson, CEO of SAS Group, said, “The airline had for long been considered to place Boston on top priority of its wish list of nonstop destinations. The airline had finally succeeded in its plan to launch direct daily flights services from Copenhagen. The new service will prove to be highly beneficial for the customers particularly for those travelling to the either cities for business purposes. The travel options are quite flexible and have been especially designed for the frequent business travellers.”
Scandinavian Airlines is presently operating flights from Scandinavia to San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC and New York. The airline had earlier in September this year launched its flights between Copenhagen and Newark Liberty. The airline will also be launching flights on Copenhagen-Miami, Oslo-Miami and Stockholm-Los Angeles routes in 2016.
