Scandinavian Airlines has decided to supend its Stavanger, Norway- Aberdeen, UK service as of October 27th 2001. SAS has provided been operating the route between the Norwegian and British oil capitals for 21 years. Today the route is operated twice daily.

The SVG-ABZ was one of SAS' most profitable, but the oil companies no longer spend as much money on travelling as they used to. Braathens and Wideroe is will continue to operate between Stavanger and Aberdeen.

The planes used on the SVG-ABZ route are much needed on other routes on the SAS network.
The shift from mainly business passengers to mainly tourist pax has rendered the route not so profitable as to warrant the use of DC-9's or MD-80's on this route.A logical choice would be 737's but these are in fairly short supply at the moment and committed to other routes.
As for SVG-LHR,SAS is seeking all the time to get extra slots at LHR,but these will be for flights to and from the Scandinavian capital cities.
