Norwegian oil capital Stavanger will be connected the US city with a direct flight from 20th August this year.

A business version of the Boeing 737-700 service will fly the route. There will be 44 comfortable business class-only seats on board featuring SAS’ Long Haul Business Class Concept, the company says.

Full-service meals and service, as well as a modern inflight entertainment system are also on offer.

According to the carrier, this “fulfils the wishes of leading players in the oil industry for better connections between Norway, and the rest of Scandinavia, and Houston.”

“The route we have established is a tailored product for a defined market with particular travel needs,” says SAS CEO Rickard Gustafson in a statement.

SAS has entered into a so-termed “wet lease” agreement with company PrivatAir in order to be able to offer the route.

This special version of the Boeing 737-700 will carry SAS’s livery.

The 20th August launch of the service is just ahead of this year’s bi-annual Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) oil exhibition in the western Norway city of Stavanger.

Tickets for route, which will operate daily except Saturdays, will be available from 29th April.

“The favorable timetable provides excellent connections throughout Scandinavia in both directions, while Houston is a hub for places to the south and west such as Mexico, Los Angeles, Dallas and Phoenix with the Star Alliance,” explains SAS Executive Vice President Eivind Roald.
