Routes and frequencies from Copenhagen to rise in 2013
Next summer SAS will increase frequencies on 10 existing routes from Copenhagen as well as open 10 new routes. The airline has received a lot of attention for its planned opening of 45 new routes next year, which from CPH includes four year-round routes and six seasonal summer routes. But the build-up of existing routes is also interesting.
Routes to southern and eastern Europe and also to Israel will be expanded. Three Spanish destinations – Alicante, Malaga and Palma – will see frequencies increased (from one, one and three flights a week in the spring, respectively, to four, seven and seven flights a week). SAS will fly from Copenhagen to Nice 15 times a week from July 1, compared to 11 times in the spring and autumn. Flights to Rome will rise to 12 times a week, Athens to 11 flights a week.
SAS will also boost its number of flights from Copenhagen to the Balkans – to Bucharest, the Croatian city of Split and to Pristina in Kosovo. And frequencies on its Copenhagen-Tel Aviv route, which opened in June this year, will rise from three to four times a week from July 1.
