Anybody know if this is a first for SAS at Lima? Did they fly to Peru in the 60’s?
It is indeed a first for SAS. They only served LIM through a cooperation with Varig, a change of aircraft in either Rio or Sao Paolo was required. SAS have only served Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina in South America
Being about 2000 km longer than CPHLAX, is this the longest passenger flight SAS has ever done? Can’t think of any flight this long before...
To my knowledge it will be the longest ever non-stop stop flight operated by SAS.
I've made a top 5 measured based on great circle routes:
CPH-LIM (11.086 km)
CPH-GRU (10.384 km)
CPH-GIG (10.165 km)
CPH-SIN (9.967 km)
CPH-LAX (9.050 km)
CPH-JNB would be nr. 5 if it has ever been non-stop, but I believe that there was at least one stop (in NBO) until it was closed
