SAS revives Newark offering

Scandinavian Airlines will launch a second flight between Newark and Copenhagen starting in May, reintroducing a popular late evening flight.The new SAS non-stop service will operate four times a week—Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday—from May 20 to August 31, with departure from Newark at 23:25 and arrival in Copenhagen at 13:15 the next day. The return flight will depart Copenhagen at 18:35 and arrive at Newark at 21:05.

Sveneric Persson, SAS Vice President The Americas, said: “We are very keen to offer our customers added flexibility and to respond to the needs of business and leisure travelers. Demand is growing on U.S. routes, and in particular, New York. The new service will be the last flight of the day from Newark to Europe. We know late flights are popular with many travelers.

“Passengers will find the early afternoon arrival at Copenhagen especially convenient for making quick and easy connections on SAS to cities throughout Europe, from what has been ranked as Europe’s best airport for the past five years,” Persson said.

The new flight will operate with Airbus A340-300 aircraft with 245 seats in three cabins: Business Class, featuring the new SAS Business Sleeper seat, Economy Extra, a separate premium Economy cabin with wider seats and more legroom, and Economy Class, giving passengers maximum flexibility of choice.

With the new service SAS will operate 46 non-stop flights per week from the U.S. to Scandinavia this summer, including 11 weekly flights between Newark and Copenhagen, and daily service between Newark and Stockholm. SAS also serves Stockholm and Copenhagen daily from Chicago, and Copenhagen daily from Seattle and Washington, D.C.
