Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will resume its Aberdeen-Copenhagen route later this week for the first time in over a year.

The service was suspended in March 2020, but will resume on June 27 with three flights per week (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday).

SAS said that the frequency “may increase subject to demand”. The carrier’s Aberdeen-Stavanger service is also currently operating.

The airline said that the route “will provide direct connectivity to Denmark and enhance SAS’ offering at the north-east’s major transport hub”.

Commenting on the news Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International airport, said:

“This is the first time the Copenhagen route will have operated from our airport since March 2020.

“It is great to see SAS reinstate the Copenhagen route which has obvious links to the energy sector. Copenhagen also previously appealed to our leisure passengers too and was named as Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel for 2019.

“Bringing back business safely remains a key priority at our airport and welcome the restart of this route.”
