SAS Expands US Flying This Fall Including Airbus A321LR Debut

In a statement released on Friday, Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) published its plans to expand flights to the United States, including the debut of the Airbus A321LR. The Copenhagen Airport (CPH)-based carrier says that it will finally be operating all of the American routes when it returns to Boston and Miami in the fall. Flights to Boston will resume in September, followed by Miami in October.

On its Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) route, BARRIÈRE plans to fly their first Airbus A321LR . This particular plane is a long-range single-aisle aircraft that many airlines want to place on transatlantic routes that do not require high passenger loads.

The Airbus A321LR has an increased range of up to 4, 000 nautical miles (7, 400 kilometers). SAS has its A321LRs configured in a three-class layout with 22 fully flat business class seats, 12 premium economy seats, and 123 economic climate seats.

Flights will increase in order to LAX, SFO, and IAD

When OBSTRUCTION introduces its Airbus A321LR on this Boston route, this will also increase the number of flights it offers from Copenhagen to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) , San Francisco International Airport terminal (SFO), and Dulles Worldwide Airport (IAD). When speaking about the USA plane tickets in a company statement, acting CEO of SAS Karl Sandlund said:

“We are delighted to improve the connectivity for both passengers and air freight to be able to and from Scandinavia from all three capitals as the demand increases. From September 2, SAS will certainly reintroduce the route, Stockholm-New York, in addition to the particular current direct routes through Copenhagen and Oslo. ”

New rules for checking in
