Norwegian Air to open Copenhagen to Stavanger route

SAS getting company on summertime route to Norway

Starting this summer, Norwegian Air will be flying in and out of Copenhagen to Stavanger on the Norwegian west coast.

Starting on 20 May next year, the route will be flown twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays.

SAS currently offers seven daily departures to Stavanger, so Norwegian adding 744 seats a week isn’t expected to make major waves.

“We are pleased to offer a new direct route between Copenhagen and Stavanger,” Norwegian head Daniel Kirchhoff told CHECK-IN.dk. “This will give more Danes the opportunity to experience the fantastic scenery and culture that the city and the area offers.”

Leisure travellers
The new route is clearly targeting the leisure crowd, including the Asian and American visitors who want to experience western Norway in the summer months.

The number of business travellers to and from Stavanger has decreased in recent months as the oil industry in the city has experienced a slump, and many carriers have cancelled or reduced the number of routes they fly.
