SAS is expanding its network in North America and will start direct routes to Toronto from Copenhagen, Denmark and Stockholm, Sweden in June 2022.
The carrier will operate three weekly flights from Copenhagen and four weekly flights from Stockholm to Toronto, North America’s fourth-largest city, with brand-new A321LR aircraft.
“We are happy to announce direct flights from Scandinavia to Toronto, taking the next step in strengthening our North America network,” said Karl Sundlund, executive vice-president, Commercial, SAS. “SAS’ new routes will make travel between Scandinavia and Canada easy and convenient for our travelers. Flights depart from Scandinavia at midday and from Toronto in the afternoon enabling good connections in either end to other destinations.”
SAS direct routes to Toronto will start in June, provided the carrier obtains the necessary approval from the authorities.
The A321LR aircraft have 157 seats and a three-class configuration: 22 seats in SAS Business, 12 seats in SAS Plus (premium economy), and 123 seats in SAS Go (economy).
“SAS aims to be a global leader in sustainable aviation. As we continue to phase in new, fuel-efficient aircraft we now have one of Europe’s most modern fleets. The new, state-of-the-art aircraft will give our customers a more pleasant, comfortable and sustainable way of travelling,” explained Sundlund.
In the coming summer season, SAS will fly to a total of seven destinations in the US and Canada: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, and Toronto.
The schedule to and from Toronto is:
- Copenhagen-Toronto: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
