Well, SAS announced earlier this year a closer cooperation with Singapore. So this has probably something to to with this.

I think it probably has something to do with two aggressive Gulf Carriers starting to serve CPH,
and now ARN too. SAS needs to start working closer with some of its star partners and SIA is the
better one to do it with.

It probably is. Emirates and Qatar Airways are definitely doing well, although one shouldn't forget Gulf. Wondering how they are doing compared to the two others.



Future flights: CPH-BRU-CPHx2; CPH-BKK-MNL; MNL-GUM-HNL-LAX

Just more codeshare. That's it.
To my surprise AY out-grown SAS for East Asia routes by a large portion, it's already late for SAS to wake up.

SAS has been flying to Bangkok and Singapore for years. DID SAS stop flying to Singapore ?

Yes, it used to be a tag-on from BKK, and was ceased some years ago

There are some different rumours. One of them is that SAS and Singapore Airlines are negotiating about creating a joint venture on daily flights between Copenhagen and Singapore. Maybe even creating a new "company" for this purpose. Later they will look at Stockholm and maybe even Helsinki.
But as said: rumours.

It would be very strange if they did not consider OSL, Norway having such a close business relation to Singapore and being the 6th biggest European investor in Singapore, about the same size as Switzerland.

ARN maybe but HEL??! Dominated by AY and OneWorld? I think the journalist have taken a few Danish schnaps too many...:D

Correct me if I am wrong but did not Norway have more trafic to Singapore than Denmark in spite of not having a direct link?

I don't know the actual numbers for Norway and Denmark, but even if it was the case that there is more traffic from Norway, it doesn't necessarily make OSL a better choice. OSL is in Norway, but is not all of Norway.

1) A lot of passengers fly out of Norway directly from their regional airports in ie BGO, SVG etc and they might as well connect in CPH as they'd have to make a connection anyway.

2) Total demand in Denmark is more concentrated around CPH rather than spread out as it would be in Norway. Relative local demand vs connecting pax would be higher. If you swtiched the flights so it origined in OSL instead, you would have a relative higher number of locals having to connect. They'd probably choose other 1-stop connections and SQ would lose more by this than the traffic they'd potentially lose if the flight origins in CPH.

3) CPH reaches beyond Denmark. Not sure how these numbers are measured, but it might not have included the southern part of Sweden.

It is a about time SAS steps up their efforts to form stronger relationships with Star Alliance carriers. I know that SAS is not in great financial shakes so they should strengthen their relationships with UA,LH and TG, as well. Do you think the Lufthansa Group is eyeing a SAS takeover?

According to the article:

SAS will also be in talks with Lufthansa, United Airlines and Air Canada on the assumption of the "Atlantic Plus", a "joint venture" for the flight across the Atlantic.
