The airline’s overall capacity to and from Dublin will increase by 11 percent next year.
Seat capacity on the Dublin-Stockholm service is expanding by 9 percent; Dublin-Oslo will expand by 16 percent and Dublin-Copenhagen will increase by 9 percent.
The airline started services in Dublin on April 1, 1966 and has carried more than 4.5 million passengers on its three routes between Dublin, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo since then.
SAS is a member of the Star Alliance group which comprises 27 airlines worldwide.
“SAS is one of our oldest European customers and its decision to significantly expand capacity on all three of its existing routes from Dublin is good news for business and leisure travellers. The expanded routes will offer additional choice and connectivity between Ireland and Sweden, Denmark and Norway and will have major benefits for Irish tourism, as Scandinavia is a growing market for visitors to Ireland,” said Vincent Harrison, managing director, Dublin Airport.
More than 21.4 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport in the first nine months of the year, a 12 percent increase when compared to the same period last year.
