Scandinavian airline SAS is set to launch the first ever direct flights from Gothenburg, situated in western Sweden, and Aalborg in Denmark, to Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in the United States in the Spring of 2023.
Travellers in the cities of Aalborg and Gothenburg will soon be able to take advantage of SAS' new direct route to New York City, with flights being offered three times a week on their latest addition to the fleet - the Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft.
This exciting expansion of their services will not only provide more convenient access to the Big Apple for residents of these cities, but will also allow travellers from further afield to take advantage of this convenient new connection.
“As part of SAS’ strategy to strengthen the regional offering in Scandinavia, we are pleased to add intercontinental routes from Gothenburg and Aalborg. We see a demand from secondary cities and are delighted to connect even more parts of the world. The Airbus A321 Long Range is a slightly smaller long-distance aircraft and perfect in size for servicing the regional markets. Having a comfortable way of traveling with fewer stops to exciting cities such as New York, is something we believe will be highly valued by our travelers,” says Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management.
The Swedish city of Gothenburg and the Danish city of Aalborg boast a wealth of attractions for tourists and travelers, as well as providing an array of business opportunities to those looking to engage in international endeavors.
From visiting the numerous museums and galleries, to sampling the renowned cuisine of both cities, there is plenty to keep even the most discerning of travelers entertained. Additionally, Gothenburg and Aalborg are home to many companies with international connections, making the new routes useful for business travelers as well as tourists. Whether traveling for leisure or work, a trip to these vibrant cities is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
This development will increase SAS' current offering of four daily departures to New York, bringing the total number of daily departures from Scandinavia to five.
