SAS, known as Scandinavian Airlines, is adding an exciting route between Copenhagen (CPH) and Atlanta (ATL) just in time for the summer.
Here’s what you need to know about SAS’s newest summer route!
Atlanta Is 9th North American Destination for SAS
SAS is adding daily service to Atlanta, the world’s busiest airport, beginning June 17, with flights operated on the Airbus A330. In the winter months, SAS will reduce the frequency of this new route to 5x weekly on its Airbus A350.
Additionally, the airline will increase its Copenhagen-New York (JFK) route to 2x daily flights. A daily Copenhagen to Boston flight will operate this summer, while Copenhagen to Toronto flights will increase to 4x weekly.
“Through an agreement with Delta Air Lines, passengers can continue their journey on other Delta-served destinations out of Atlanta,” said SAS President & CEO Anko van der Werff. “This development means an expanded offering for SAS passengers, who can look forward to reaching several new and exciting destinations across the Southern USA, Caribbean, and Latin America, all conveniently accessible from Atlanta.”
Booking SAS Flights
Flights are now available directly through SAS. If you’re interested in booking, you’ll find flights starting at around $1,300 round-trip for dates in June 2024. You may be able to find cheaper tickets later in the summer.
But if you want to save cash, your best bet is booking with points and miles. SAS is a Star Alliance member, meaning you can redeem partner miles to fly on the airline. There are several ways to book using travel rewards, starting at just 40,000 miles one-way (using Asiana Club miles).
Here are your options:
- American Express Membership Rewards: Transfer Amex points to Aeroplan miles, Avianca LifeMiles, or Singapore KrisFlyer miles
- Capital One Miles: Transfer Capital One miles to Air Canada Aeroplan, Avianca LifeMiles, EVA Air Infinity MileageLands, and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
- Chase Ultimate Rewards: Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards to United Airlines or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
- Citi ThankYou Rewards: Transfer Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles, EVA Air Infinity MileageLands, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus, and Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles
- Marriott Bonvoy: Transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to Aegean Airlines Miles+Bonus, Air Canada Aeroplan, Air China PhoenixMiles, Air New Zealand Airpoints, All Nippon Airways Mileage Club, Asiana Club, Avianca LifeMiles, Copa Airlines ConnectMiles, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, South African Airways Voyager, TAP Air Portugal, Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus, Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles, and United MileagePlus
However you choose to book your flight, keep in mind that SAS filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2022, though the airline recently said it expected to emerge from the process by June, according to Bloomberg.
Atlanta is the world’s busiest airport, so it makes sense that SAS would add daily service to the city. Unfortunately, cash prices on the route aren’t cheap, so you’ll want to use your points and miles if you’re interested in flying on this route!
