Looks like they are going head-to-head with Norwegian's routes. DBV,PMI,BCN and SPU are extremely popular from Scandinavia, så they'll have good loads, for sure.


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Of course they are. SAS are not proactive but reactive. A lot of the routes launched, especially in Norway, are launched as an result of what Norwegian are doing. Very sad, but true..

Still no CPH-KEF  

Happy to see SK expand. Clearly they want to send a message to DY with at least some of these routes. Will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

I wonder is SKs costbase really has come down to a level where they can compete with DY. Or possibly DYs costbase has increased slightly with their cabin crew becoming more senior. Anyone who might have a clue?

Cheers,
BJ

Probably B737 (400/500/700/800) like on most routes within or in/out of Norway.

Well there are already 5-6 flights a day operated with 3 757-200´s and 1 757-300 as well as 737-700´s so there´s quite a bit of competition. But nonetheless I agree with you.

I'm disappointed not to see DUB - Bergen. Given how popular the DUB-OSL route has become over the last 3 years, with 3 carriers now operating up to 4 daily flights, And with Bergen and Stavanger seeming popular connections.

Yes, was a charter I believe. Definitely a route worthy of some consideration. Norway has become very popular among the Irish.

I agree with you. And another thing is that Arlanda - Malaga and Barcelona routes are not new for SAS but rather routes that have been served by SAS before and now resumed.

I just hope at some stage that SK will introduce a 3x weekly service from GIB to one of their focus airports.. Would be good for Gibraltar, and also good for the Scandinavian population as a cheaper and faster alternative to AGP. Now the new terminal at GIB is almost completed, it should be good at tempting new airlines to operate, albeit seasonal!

Good news and most sertantly seasonal routes with low weekly frequencies. Nice to see that SVG and BGO get some new SK destinations. Now if only BOO could get a CPH flight

Norwegian is constantly trying out new routes, so why can't SAS start CPH-BOO and CPH-TOS with CRJ900 and upgrade to A319 or B735/6 if demand is there?

I agree. Even though I only flew it once a year, it beats the hell out of transferring at IAD or EWR


Will they require additional Aircraft to cover these routes? If I understand correctly, 2012 will not be the year where the SK fleet will increase (retirements will even out any new additions).

I'm amazed that SK doesn't have a West Coast North America flight. I believe SEA was their oldest long distance route dating back to 1967 (as old as me actually!!).
A lot of people have switched to Icelandaire which has a great connection to Europe.

You can also connect in FRA (LH) KEF (FI) LHR (BA) AMS (KL) and some more in Europe. You don't need to connect in the States.

Funnily enough MAN has had SK flights to BGO available for all to see for months when you look at the MAN online timetable. Weekly charters starting December running through to April.

IIRC the SEA flight was only profitable due to a cargo contract. When SK lost that contract the flight was not profitable anymore.

Well, wasn't the A340 a bit big of a plane for the route also? I believe it was more profitable with the 767.
