SAS announces Delhi route

6 Oct 2008 by Mark Caswell

Scandinavian
carrier SAS is to launch three-times weekly flights to Delhi at the end of this
month.

The airline says
it will commence flights from Copenhagen to the Indian capital on October 27,
using A340-300 aircraft configured with economy, Economy Extra (premium
economy) and business class cabins.

Outbound flights
will depart on Mondays, Wednesday and Saturdays at 1820, arriving into Delhi at
0630 the next day. The return leg departs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at
0915, arriving back into Copenhagen at 1315.

Connections via
the UK include options from London, Birmingham and Manchester. As an example,
the 1405 departure from London Heathrow gets in to Copenhagen at 1700, allowing
a 70 minute connection time.

Speculation has
been rife regarding the future of SAS, with rumours of a Lufthansa buy out
leading to the airline’s shares being suspended last month (see online news
September 12). A report on bloomberg.com yesterday (October 6) suggests that while the airline is still looking at partnership and takeover possibilities, this may now be delayed due to the global credit crisis.
