SAS switches LAX route from Stockholm to Copenhagen

SAS has changed the routing of a route to Los Angeles from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Copenhagen Airport.

The carrier said it has made the move as there is strong demand from customers in Denmark and North Europe to the California city.

SAS will start the service on 13 January 2020. It will start with six departures a week from Copenhagen Airport before going daily on 31 March.

The route will be operated initially with Airbus A330s and then gradually a mix of A340s and A350s.

Executive vice president commercial, Karl Sandlund said: “By opening a year-round route to Los Angeles from Copenhagen we are increasing availability and enabling growth.

“The timetable is attractive, and thanks to the economies of scale we can achieve in fully utilizing our fleet, we are in a position to provide a daily service from Copenhagen Airport.”

“Los Angeles is one of the most in-demand intercontinental routes from Copenhagen, and an important route for our leisure customers in particular,” added Sandlund.
