Interesting to know SK has not operated on this route before. Has SU been flying between the two capitals before this?

SU has a long history of serving Oslo from both Moscow and St. Petersburg. Not sure if they serve Oslo from the latter today, but they used to.

I had no idea SAS did not fly to SVO from Oslo.
I mean Aeroflot used to have this route for... a long time.
And I was sure not only Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Seems to be a normal thing to me.
Good!

SU has almost a daily A319/A320 during the summer. And at least 5 weekly flights during the winter:

12-45-7 SVO 12.25 OSL 16.00 OSL 16.55 SVO 19.30 A319 2:35

Before they used to operate a daily Tu154M to OSL with a night-stop in OSL and a morning departure to SVO.

I loved that TU-154M flight.
Spending a night in Oslo before a good 10 day car trip around the country.
Norway is huge when driving, you know.

I am sure Norway - though expensive - will be popular with upper tier of Russian tourists in summer months.
There is so much to see.

For a.netters Norway is a kind of jewel. Amazing small airports in fjords. FANTASTISK!
Only Nepal can offer more in this respect.

Right, right.
Well, for people like me who used to go to tropical resorts in winter and/or late fall/early spring resorts in Egypt/Israel - there are not many options in summer.
Norway, with its amazing landscape, great people and rich history - may be the only choice.

I used to rent a car. Many Russian do.
But some really drive right from home.
Most drive - and use ferry to Sweden.
Some really adventurous drive all the way along the gulf of Bothnia.

I don't know though to what extend Norway economy is interested in tourism.

Very good news  

I have seen that Cathay just launched route to Domodedovo DME airport. What is the general difference between the two airports? From what I can see DME is a bit larger airport than SVO. And that SVO is closer to city center. Am I correct that the reason SAS flies to SVO is because it is the Aeroflot HUB?

I agree with you on SU's service to Moscow. I was referring to SU's service to St. Petersburg. I know it must have operated at least up until the late 80s or early 90s. There used to be both a TU-154 and a TU-134 parked at OSL on some nights.

I assume this is the reason, especially as they codeshare with SU on routes to ARN and (IIRC) CPH too.

In the past, SVO was the main international gateway to Moscow, but during the last 5 years, most StarAlliance and OneWorld carriers have switched to DME: LH, OS, LX, SN, BD, TG, SQ, MS, TP, UA; and BA, IB, JL, CX.

SK, JP and TK are they only StarAlliance carriers still using SVO, and AY the sole Oneworld carrier. SK, JP and AY all code share with SU on all their routes, TK and SU compete head-to-head on SVO-IST.

Except for VN, all Skyteam carriers use SVO.

At least passengers can connect with SU departures to Asia (NRT, HKG, BKK, PEK, PVG, HAN, ICN, DXB etc.)

It's strange that SU does not try to offer a real hub system between Europe/Asia/Europe flows.
They do it for the main European gateways as CDG, AMS, LHR, now to CPH with the second daily flight and to VIE with the third flight, but SU could optmize better all the schedules to Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, Finland, Eastern Europe etc. to turn SVO as a first choice alternative, from Europe to Asia and back, as AY do it for OneWorld at HEL.

SU flights are mostly on time, the service in European Business Class is among the best in Europe (real 2x2 seats with menu), the Y cabin sees a choice of 2 hot meals and the long-haul network has seen signficant improvement with the A330s.

10 of the 15 Star Alliance carriers serving Moscow use DME.

DME: OS, BD, SN, MS, LH, SQ, LX, TP, TG, UA

SVO: JP, CA, LO, SK, TK

Yes they do, and they even use the taxi-way for take-off once in a while

I did not see this one coming! I'm a little sceptical if this route will work, but I guess the route planners at SAS has seen in their models that they hopefully can make money on this route
