Scandinavian Airlines has announced today that it is continuing its expansion in the Polish market with the opening of another direct route on October 29, between Copenhagen and Lodz. SAS will now offer more than 70 weekly direct flights between Scandinavia and Poland on eight routes: Stockholm-Gdansk, Oslo-Gdansk, Copenhagen-Gdansk, Copenhagen-Lodz, Copenhagen-Katowice, Copenhagen-Poznan, Copenhagen-Warsaw and Copenhagen-Wroclaw.
SAS will be the first network carrier to operate flights to Lodz, Poland's third biggest city with a population of 1.2 million in the city’s greater area. The new route will be operated daily except Saturdays with a CRJ200, comprising 50 seats and Business, Economy Extra and Economy classes. SK773 will depart CPH at 12.20, arriving in Lodz at 13.35, whilst SK774 will depart Lodz at 14.15 and arrive in Copenhagen at 15.30.
“Poland is an extremely important market to us, considering its proximity to Copenhagen,” Joakim Landholm, SAS chief commercial officer, explains. “We can offer a quick direct flight or an easy transfer to all our Polish destinations. Earlier this year, SAS opened Copenhagen-Katowice and last autumn also Stockholm-Gdansk. SAS will now fly to six destinations in Poland, offering eight direct routes from Scandinavia.”
