SAS has launched a new route from Brussels to Tromso in Norway which it will operate a Boeing 737 with from January to March in 2020.
The airline expects to fly almost 100,000 passengers between Tromsø and Europe during the winter programme, which extends from November 2019 to March 2020.
“Northern Norway, with Tromsø as the jewel in the crown, is attracting more and more attention internationally for its stunning scenery and exotic environment, so in response SAS is improving its services further to meet demand,” says Karl Sandlund, EVP Commercial, SAS.
SAS is working with various companies, including tour operator Nordic in Belgium, in conjunction with this initiative, which is very relevant to the tourist market in the BeNeLux countries.
During the year, SAS brings several thousand tourists from Asia and USA to the region, and through this direct link, SAS is further improving connections to and from Europe.
SAS is also finding that the direct routes from Copenhagen and Stockholm to Tromsø are popular traffic arteries for people flying from destinations across the Star Alliance network.
