SAS Following Developments in Iran, but Remains Silent on Launch of New Routes

Danish travel site reports that SAS is following developments in the aviation market between Scandinavia and Iran, but will not yet reveal whether a new route is imminent.

Speculation over possible new routes between SAS hubs Stockholm-Arlanda or Copenhagen and Iman Khomeini International Airport arises due to possible opportunities for Scandinavian businesses in Iran.

Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen headed a Danish delegation of 59 companies which visited Iran to shortly after the new year. Swedish businesses like Ericsson, Scania and ABB have already expressed interest in the Iranian market, as have the ten largest multinational businesses in Sweden, reports.

However, when the publication reached out to Simon Pauck Hansen, SAS Director of Network and Partners, he would not confirm whether SAS plans flights to Iran, saying only, “We can confirm that we are following developments in the market with interest.”

Other European carriers have already announced flights to Teheran over the past six months including Alitalia, Air France, Austrian Airlines and most recently British Airways.
