SAS grows services from Bristol and builds on success of Stockholm route. One way fares from only £29.00 including taxes
Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) had cause to celebrate on Sunday (30 March) as the inaugural service from Bristol International Airport to Oslo lifted off. The inauguration of the service marks the expansion of SAS’ operation at Bristol International Airport and complements the return of the twice weekly summer services from Bristol to Stockholm launched in 2007.
SAS now operates three weekly services to the Norwegian capital on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday providing excellent links between the South West and Oslo. The new Oslo service will operate until the 23rd of October and represents an increased presence for the airline at Bristol International Airport. One way fares will start from only £29.00 including taxes, with travellers able to choose from Business, Economy and Economy Extra services.
Economy Extra provides an efficient service including business class check-in facilities and fully flexible fares, with no restrictions. Economy Extra passengers are seated in a dedicated area between the business and economy sections, receive a complimentary meal with drinks and can earn extra frequent flyer points.
Lars-Ove Filipson, General Manager United Kingdom & Ireland, Scandinavian Airlines System said: “We are delighted to be growing the SAS offering at Bristol International Airport with the launch of the new service to Oslo. The Stockholm summer service performed very well last year and has been re-introduced for summer 2008 due to customer demand. With the launch of the new Oslo service this week, we look forward to opening up Scandinavia to the South West. SAS now offers an extensive choice of flights from Bristol to Scandinavia that no other airline is able to match.”
Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive of Bristol International Airport, said: “The launch of the new Oslo route, to be followed by the return of a Stockholm service this summer, shows the potential of the South West as a leisure destination for Scandinavians. The region proved popular with visiting Swedes last year, and we are confident Norwegians will also enjoy the attractions of Bristol, Bath and beyond.
“As the seventeenth capital city served from Bristol International, Oslo extends the choice of destinations available to leisure and business travellers across the South West, further reducing the need for road and rail journeys to London airports.”
