Airline launches new Aberdeen to Oslo route


Scandinavian Airlines today announced plans to expand its regional network by launching a new direct route from Aberdeen International Airport to the Norwegian capital of Oslo.

The new service will begin on 31 March next year. The flights will operate three days a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The flight time to Oslo will be 90 minutes and prices will start from £98 for a one-way ticket.

Hans Dyhrfort, the SAS regional general manager for Western Europe, said: “With already strong connections with Scandinavia and successful direct services to Copenhagen and Stavanger from Aberdeen International Airport, Aberdeen and the North east region of Scotland is an important hub and area of development for SAS.

“By launching this new direct route to Oslo, SAS aims to strengthen the business and commercial links between North Scotland and Scandinavia. We are pleased to offer passengers the choice and flexibility to fly direct from Aberdeen to Oslo and onwards to many other destinations in Norway and the Nordic region.”

Carol Benzie, the managing director of Aberdeen International Airport, welcomed the new service. She said: “I am pleased to see that the popularity of this route is such that SAS is in a position to unveil yet another direct route from Aberdeen International Airport.

“It is a clear demonstration of the airline listening to their customers and reacting to demand.”

Ms Benzie added: “The popularity of the Oslo route for tourists visiting the North east, for tourism into Norway’s capital and the obvious business connections mean I am confident that this will be a success, and we wish them luck with the service.”
