New Scotland to Norway flights by Scandinavian airline SAS

Edinburgh Airport
Edinburgh is to have Oslo and Stavanger flights twice a week between April and October next year

Scandinavian airline SAS has announced new routes linking Scotland with Norway.

Edinburgh is to have Oslo and Stavanger flights twice a week between April and October next year.

Aberdeen is to have a new year-round link with Oslo three times a week.

The new routes come after Edinburgh Airport secured its first direct Middle East link and recently secured a new route to Philadelphia.

Beautiful country

Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport chief executive, said: "Norway is an important trade and business link for Scotland and we're delighted to be working with SAS in developing this further.

"Expanding our route network is one of our top priorities and we're pleased to be introducing these new flights to allow Scots the opportunity to visit this beautiful country.

"Next year will be hugely exciting for Scotland. We're looking forward to welcoming our Norwegian passengers and giving them a taste of all that Scotland has to offer in 2014."

Hans Dyhrfort, SAS regional general manager western Europe, said: "We are pleased to offer new summer services direct to both Oslo and Stavanger and provide a direct flight to Norway, the fjords, and Scandinavia.

"For any business travellers wishing to travel during this period, we offer the convenience of direct flights to either Oslo or Stavanger, with onward flights to many other Norwegian destinations."
