The exciting summer additions from Copenhagen are Bari in Italy, Tivat in Montenegro and Zadar in Croatia – all three of these holiday gems being in the Adriatic – great for those who love the water as well as picturesque, historical surroundings. A fourth new destination from the Danish capital is the classic holiday resort of Rhodes in Greece.

At the same time, Spain is continuing to attract holidaymakers from Scandinavia, so SAS is starting a direct route from Oslo to Valencia. The interest in Spain is also continuing to grow in Denmark and Aarhus, and SAS is increasing the number of flights to Malaga, Palma (Majorca) and Alicante.

From Stockholm, SAS is increasing its frequency of flights and extending its season to Beirut, in response to demand from the many passengers who have discovered the city or who have an affiliation with the region. Luxembourg’s timetable from Arlanda is also expanding with more departures, making it a year-round destination.
 
The route from Oslo to Kyiv, Ukraine, which was introduced for autumn 2019, will also be continuing over the summer period, making it now a year-round direct route. The connections eastbound from Denmark are also improving when the flights from Copenhagen to Russian Sankt Petersburg start to operate again. 

SAS A320neo
Many of the new routes will be served by Airbus 320 NEO, the market’s most fuel-efficient aircraft. 

“We are working constantly on our offering, so that more people can travel with us, but with less impact on the climate. New aircraft with lower fuel consumption, investments in biofuel and our carbon dioxide compensation scheme for trips made by our Eurobonus members, are just a few examples of our ambitious plans to convert to more sustainable travel,” says Karl Sandlund.

Published

Emirates Boeing777-300er

Emirates has announced on 24 September 2020 that it will resume flights to Johannesburg (1 October), Cape Town (1 October), Durban (4 October) in South Africa; Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); and Mauritius (3 October). The addition of the five points will expand the Emirates’ global network to 92 destinations, as the airline gradually resumes its operations while prioritising the safety of its customers, crew and the communities it serves around the world. 

Emirates’ African network will also now extend to 19 cities.

Customers flying in and out of Emirates’ three South African gateways can safely connect to Dubai and to an array of onwards connections to Europe, the Far East, Middle East, West Asia and Australasia.


  • Johannesburg (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Cape Town (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Durban (4 October) in South Africa;
  • Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); 
  • Mauritius (3 October).

Emirates will operate to Harare with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service. The linked services will connect Zambia and Zimbabwe to key destinations across Europe, the Far East, the Americas, Australasia and West Asia with one convenient stop in Dubai.

Flights from Dubai to Mauritius will initially operate once a week on Saturdays, supporting the Mauritian government’s repatriation efforts to bring its citizens home, and enabling the recovery of the country’s tourism industry by safely connecting leisure travellers from Europe, the Far East and the Middle East to the popular Indian Ocean island destination. 

Customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors. Ensuring the safety of travellers, visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
