Furthermore, the airline increased the flight frequency from Copenhagen to Boston from six times a week to daily. The airline will operate the Airbus A350 aircraft for these flights, doubling the available seating capacity. This enhancement ensures daily connectivity and facilitates increased cargo transport between the two regions.

SAS will also be adding a fourth weekly flight from Copenhagen to Toronto. With a new departure time from Copenhagen, it will be easier for passengers to connect to and from European and Scandinavian cities.
