SAS Launches, Stockholm, Copenhagen From YYZ

SAS is expanding its network in North America with direct routes to Copenhagen and Stockholm from Toronto.

The carrier will operate three weekly flights to Copenhagen and four weekly flights to Stockholm with its brand-new A321LR aircraft. The inaugural flight from Toronto to Stockholm took off on June 2; while the first flight to Copenhagen departed on June 3.

Scandinavia offers a bounty of awe-inspiring experiences for every traveller. Known as the happiest city in the world, Copenhagen, Denmark is known for its stunning canals, world-acclaimed restaurants and bars, Tivoli Gardens, and as the home of author Hans Christen Andersen.

Stockholm, Sweden, is comprised of 14 islands that are connected by 57 bridges and is home to the world’s first national city park, the Abba Museum, equally incredible dining and imbibing experiences, along with enchanting wildlife throughout the city’s archipelago.

Anko van der Werff, President & CEO, SAS, said: “We are delighted to connect Canada and Scandinavia and fly to Toronto with our latest generation aircraft, which is ideal for this route. Using the A321LR means we can connect even more parts of the world and it is well suited for the Scandinavian market and the emerging travel patterns to and from the region.”

And he continued: “SAS aims to be a global leader in sustainable aviation. As we continue to phase in new, fuel-efficient aircraft such as the A321LR, we now have one of Europe’s most modern fleets. This state-of-the-art aircraft will give our customers an even more pleasant, comfortable, and sustainable way of traveling.”

The Toronto routes will be operated with a three-class configuration with 157 seats; 22 seats in SAS Business, 12 seats in SAS Plus (premium economy), and 123 seats in SAS Go (economy).

In the coming summer season, SAS will fly from a total of seven destinations in the US and Canada: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, and Toronto.

  • Toronto-Copenhagen: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
  • Copenhagen-Toronto: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
  • Toronto-Stockholm: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday
