Just been announced during a breakfast at Routes 2007 in Stockholm:

http://www.lfv.se/templates/LFV_ListArticle____47922.aspx

2007-09-24

Delta Air Lines will launch a non-stop route between Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world’s largest airport. Delta will fly this route six times per week, starting on June 4, 2008.


The route will offer more than 150 flight connections in Atlanta, including such cities as Los Angeles, Orlando, Las Vegas, Miami and San Francisco.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Delta Air Lines to Stockholm and Arlanda. This non-stop route will give travellers from Stockholm and Sweden access to the world’s largest hub in Atlanta − a hub that offers smooth connections to large parts of the United States. Travellers from the US will now have better access to Stockholm, the Capital of Scandinavia, and Stockholm-Arlanda, the airport with the largest route network in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea region. This will benefit the business community, while providing opportunities for social and cultural exchange,” says Airport Director Kerstin Lindberg Göransson, LFV Stockholm-Arlanda Airport.

“We are happy to be able to unveil new routes that expand our network and make travel easier for our customers. This new non-stop route offers many new travel alternatives for both business travellers and tourists between Sweden and the United States, as well as for the air cargo market. We have seen a great need for this non-stop route, because in the state of Georgia there are 55 Swedish companies and in Sweden about 900 American ones. This air connection will strengthen business relations between Sweden and the US. Tourists will also benefit from onward connections to such destinations as Florida, the US west coast and Latin America,” says Andy Renner, Delta’s director of international network planning.

Delta Air Lines will fly a Boeing 767-300ER seating 214 passengers, 36 of them in Business Elite, Delta’s business class.

TIMETABLE
Stockholm-Arlanda to Atlanta
Dep 1.35 p.m., arr 5.30 p.m., daily except Tuesdays

Yeah but would like to see A DL Atlanta service, would sure be popular with Norwegians who could benefit from the range of onward connections.

Since Fornebu closed, Oslo has had a big drop in long haul direct flights.

The press release points out that even the State of Georgia as a whole will benefit from this route. From the Delta.com press release:

Quoting delta.com:
Fifty-five Swedish businesses operate in the state of Georgia and approximately 900 U.S. companies have operations in Sweden. Delta's latest international route will open a critical economic access point on both sides of the Atlantic.
"This direct flight will now put Georgia squarely on the map for even more Swedish businesses looking to relocate or establish a foothold in the U.S. We salute Delta's commitment and vision in announcing this new route," said Mee Linden, vice-chair of the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce-USA

Volvo, Saab and Ikea aside, what are the biggest TATL business operations that will benefit from Sweden-SE--U.S. service?

I'm sure you know, just as well as everybody else, that that is just PR exaggeration, as all airlines do, all the time.

Yes, you didn't find out what an amazingly beautiful city Stockholm is, and how it rightly should be considered
the capital of Scandinavia. (take that CPH!!!!). Especially in winter covered in snow, its absolutely beautiful! Big enough to be hip, yet small enough to be livable, and personal. The word 'Scandinavia' is basically the old Roman empire word for Sweden, and Stockholm is after all, the capital of Sweden (despite more people living in the south of sweden in total, but not in any one particular city). So you can see how some might Claim Stockholm is the true Capital of Scandinavia...despite CPH being bigger. The nightlife might not be up to Berlin's standards, but the people inside the clubs are definitely better looking!!! (although Berlin certainly is bad... and a lot of fun too...do both cities if you're in the area!!!). And the Gamla Stan is to die for.

It looks like that 400 years of sporadic fighting... and a little bit of peaceful negotiation towards the end to agree on the borders of the Scandinavian countries has been tossed out, Sweden apparently channeled some Charles XII and wants to expand back to the old borders  Smile

Interesting thought... Southern Sweden (Skåne Halland, Halland & Blekinge) used to be part of Denmark. What difference would it make anyway. Most of the people living there uses CPH airport, coz' it's the closest and most convenient...also if you're going to ATL.

I dont mind anybody saying that Stockholm is the Capital of Scandinavia... Airport wise there is no doubt, CPH serves more people, mainly because south Sweden is also served by CPH.

That's right. To get to its old borders, Sweden would actually have to shrink, not expand.

In the broader sense, yes, but this thread was created solely with regards to the press release of the ARN announcement. I see nothing wrong with that.

I even backed up the rumour in the other thread as well.

This is not a surprise that its from ATL.

NYC-ARN would be too crowded with a fourth airline.

I wonder how the route will do during the dead of winter.

I was wondering when DL would return to ARN. I was expecting it more from JFK than ATL, yet I'm not complaining. Glad to see them return.

Now if only NW could get in on some of the Scandinavian action. DTW-CPH/ARN..........one of these days  pray

If CPH-ATL was any indication, it should actually perform quite decently....CPH-ATL was actually a very nice performer during this past winter...can't underestimate the number of Danes (or Swedes) heading to warmer climes such as Florida, the Caribbean, or even Central/South America through ATL....
