SAS to restart Lakslev after a 17-year gap

SAS is to begin a non-stop service between Oslo and Lakslev, the first time it has done so for 17 years.  The twice-weekly service, on Mondays and Fridays, takes off on 17 April.  Initially operated by Boeing 737-800s, it’ll transfer to A320neos from later this year.  The 791-mile route, to the north of Norway not far from the Finland border, is driven in part from demand from the nearby airbase.  In 2019, OAG Traffic Analyser shows that nearly 24,000 flew between with two, mainly connecting en route at Tromso.

SAS beginning this service comes as a result of Norwegian ending it.  Norwegian operated Oslo – Lakslev non-stop on a peak summer season basis, from June to August and normally around Christmastime, for many years.  It varied between once- and twice-weekly.
