Hello everyone,

This is my first post here on the forum.

Just was wondering how well is SAS doing on the once a week CPH - BEY route. I know Snowflake served this route before and they had good loads in the summer. I am hoping they are able to fill the A321 and increase it maybe to a 2 or 3 flights a week. Your input is greatly appreciated.

ME201...Big Welcome to this forum!

You may recall that Snowflake operated last year from ARN initially and then added CPH at the same time MEA introduced two weeklies using their A332s.

So I am sure the demand is strong. At this point, I would say, the one weekly is working beautofully to serve the O&D market (which requires a lower load) to operate.

You can bet your money...come this summer, SAS will be blessing the BEY runway at least three times a week (if not 4 times).

And I am sure MEA will bring back the summer seasonal service too.

The ex-snowflake route is doind very well for SAS. In fact it is doing too well, and SAS hasn't done anything about it...yet.

What I mean by that is there is so much demand for this flight and so few seats!

My family travels this route regularly. So as you can imagine the last two years have been a blessing for them as they no longer have to connect and drag their bags and kids through their connection airport.

The concensus in Denmark is that the people are willing to pay MORE for the direct flight to save a headache. Indeed, this has driven the demand up, and this has become apparent because last year lots of seats were sold out on the 1x weekly flight to BEY.

Last year our travel plans had to be altered a few times so that we could find an an open seat with MEA to travel to BEY. In the end an entire week and a half was sacrificed. At that time however, most flight were sold out anyways so it didnt make too much of a difference.

does summer services increase to BEY and CAI? from north?

I thought most in the north would go down during winter to be warmer?

am I wrong?

I want to non-rev

Thanks for all the info Yegbey01 and MEA321! I am hoping somebody will eventually post pictures of the SAS 321 at Beirut airport since it is a day flight, so taking pics should not be a problem.


I think the winter sun seekers traffic is usually to other mediterranean destinations such as Spain and Greece (and Cyprus, Tunisia... etc), however Beirut and Cairo may not exactly fit in that category. Also, Beirut traffic swells in the summer due to expats vacationing in Lebanon in the summer. But that is just my opinion.
