The airline says daily flights from Oslo to New York will begin on 27 March whilst it will be opening its five-times-a-week Copenhagen-Shanghai route sometime during next winter.

“Due to significantly reduced costs, a world-class product and improved market conditions, there are now greater prerequisites for a profitable expansion for SAS. We will improve our customer offering with both new routes and extensively adding new frequencies on existing routes," says SAS’ Chief Commercial Officer Robin Kamark in a press release.

The Oslo-New York route will be flown using an Airbus A330-300, with 34 Business, 35 Economy Extra, and 195 Economy Class seats, whilst an Airbus A340-300 will fly between Copenhagen and Shanghai.46 Business, 28 Economy Extra, and 171 Economy Class seats will be offered on this route.

European and short-haul flights are also to get a boost. There will be four new departures, between Oslo-Munich, Oslo-Palma, and Oslo Split, as well as Stockholm-Venice. Key short-haul routes are to be increased by150 per week.

Kamark alleges record-high load factors and the world's best punctuality record  mean “SAS is really ahead of the game right now, which is noticeable amongst our customers as we are also scoring the highest customer satisfaction.”
