SAS opens its only Greek route from Oslo; adds Menorca from Stockholm

Menorca became the second (after Palma de Mallorca) Balearic destination offered by SAS from Stockholm Arlanda. The inaugural service was welcomed with the traditional watercannon salute.

  • SAS started flying on the route from Oslo (OSL) to Santorini (JTR) on 12 May, making the Greek island the only destination in the country it serves from the Norwegian capital. The 2,800-kilometre route to Santorini, which is also the airline’s only Greek destination apart from Athens (served from Copenhagen – 2 weekly flights; Stockholm Arlanda – 2; and Helsinki – 1) operates with weekly frequencies until 22 September. Initially, there is no competition on the route, but Norwegian plans to begin a thrice-weekly service on 23 June. On the same day, SAS also inaugurated services from Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) to Menorca (MAH), which it now operates with weekly frequencies. 737-800s are deployed on the route, which marks SAS’ return to Mahon following six years of absence.
