SAS now flies year-round to Palma de Mallorca from Copenhagen
SAS Scandinavian Airlines relaunched services between its Copenhagen (CPH) hub and Palma de Mallorca (PMI) on 3 September. The airline dropped the route to the Mediterranean island in 2005 when it was handed over to its then subsidiary Spanair that eventually also dropped the route in 2009. The new flights are operated twice-weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with a mix of A319 and MD80 aircraft. At the start of next year’s summer season, frequencies are planned to double to four flights a week. Although the route currently faces competition from airberlin’s four weekly flights and Cimber Sterling’s and Norwegian’s each three flights a week, all competing services are operated during the summer season only, whereas SAS will operate year-round and thereby be the sole operator in winter.
