SAS opens new international routes from Jutland

It is now possible to fly to Stockholm from Billund and Aalborg

SAS has now opened two new international routes to Sweden’s capital, Stockholm, from the two major Jutland airports – Aalborg and Billund. 


The route from Aalborg is the first SAS international route scheduled since the 1980s, reports.


From Billund, SAS also flies to Oslo and will now offer flights to Stockholm two times a day, six days a week. 


"We at Billund Airport are pleased with the new route to Stockholm Arlanda, a location where SAS offers good connections to the rest of the world," airport spokesperson Anders Nielsen told "Moreover, the increased travel capacity to and from Sweden's capital allows leisure and business travellers to take part in the tourism and business potential offered by both countries." 


The opening of the new routes to Stockholm is in line with SAS' plan to increase flights between major cities within Scandinavia.


"We have seen a rising demand from customers around the two major Jutland airports for direct access to their destinations," SAS's chief operating officer, Flemming Jensen, told "It’s a demand we would like to fill."


In Aalborg, SAS offers travellers four weekly departures to Stockholm and will focus primarily on leisure passengers. 


"There is great potential when it comes to this route to Stockholm," the head of Aalborg Airport, Søren Svenden, explained to "And we are delighted that SAS will be offering Aalborg Airport passengers the opportunity to travel internationally."
