SAS switches Gothenburg route from LHR to Stansted

5 Jun 2015 by GrahamSmith

SAS has announced it will switch its London Heathrow-Gothenburg service to London Stansted.

Starting on October 26, the Scandinavian airline will operate 12 weekly flights using a B737-600 aircraft to the UK capital's third busiest airport.

The carrier is also introducing larger aircraft on all its existing routes to London, increasing capacity from Scandinavia by more than 50,000 seats by 2016.

Andrew Harrison, London Stansted's managing director, said: "Im delighted to welcome SAS back to Stansted with what will no doubt be a very popular service to and from Gothenburg.

"I'm sure the new service will be very well received within our catchment area, especially by business passengers along the London-Stansted-Cambridge economic corridor as well as those travelling from Sweden wanting quick and easy access to London and the east of England."

In April, SAS unveiled an interactive Google Street View video tour of the airline's new-look long-haul aircraft (see news, April 10).
