Miami Airport adds two more Scandinavian routes
On September 29, SAS started three weekly flights from MIA to Copenhagen, Denmark, marking the airline's first flights to the southeastern US and only its fifth US route overall.
Copenhagen and Oslo represent MIA's second and third destinations in the Scandinavian region, and bring MIA’s growing number of European routes to 22. The year-round service will be served by Airbus 330-200 aircraft that feature completely redesigned, ultra-modern cabins seating as many as 236 passengers.
The inaugural flight also brought with it nine tonnes of Norwegian salmon in the belly cargo.
“Miami-Dade County is proud to welcome another world-class airline like SAS to our community, and to begin serving its passengers from the Nordic countries of Norway and Denmark,” said Carlos A. Gimenez, Mayor, Miami-Dade County.
Oslo and Copenhagen join Helsinki, Finland as the other northern European destination with nonstop service from MIA, with the latter served by Finnair.
Additionally, WOW Air, Iceland’s low-cost transatlantic airline, announced this month that it will begin service from MIA to its base of Reykjavík, Iceland, starting in April 2017.
“The addition of SAS is the latest step MIA is taking into new and untapped markets such as Scandinavia and northern Europe,” said Director Gonzalez. “With more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean already under our belt, new east-west routes like Oslo and Copenhagen are quickly turning MIA into a truly global gateway as well.”
Scandinavian Airlines carries more than 28 million passengers annually, with close to 1,000 daily flights to 127 destinations in 36 countries in Scandinavia, Europe, the US and Asia.
