SAS is to resume regular passenger flights from Copenhagen to Amsterdam, Chicago and New York from next month, as well as adding more services within and between Scandinavian countries.

The carrier says it will double capacity in June, from the current 15 aircraft in service up to 30 next month.

From June 8 flights will resume between Copenhagen and Amsterdam, followed by long-haul services to Chicago and New York from June 10.

Next month will also see four Swedish domestic routes being added from Stockholm’s Arlanda airport, to Malmo, Angelholm, Kalmar and Skelleftea, as well as flights from the capital to Helsinki and Turku.

All domestic destinations are now being served in Norway, and flights will be added from Copenhagen to Bergen and Stavanger, as well as the resumption of services between Stavanger and the Scottish city of Aberdeen (from June 8).

SAS recently used the downtime of its aircraft to convert an A340 for passenger-cargo use.
