According to Routesonline, SAS plans to resume flights from Copenhagen to Beijing Capital Airport from October 23 with a once-weekly frequency following CAAC’s guidelines for international flights to China. Scandinavian Airlines is planning to use an Airbus A330 aircraft on the route and the resumption plan still needs government approval.

SAS plans to resume Copenhagen – Beijing Capital route later this week, based on schedule listing. The Star Alliance carrier plans to schedule one weekly flight from 23 October 2020. 

The airline’s schedule is tentatively adjusted until 14 November 2020.

Schedule below is effective from 30 October 2020:

Scandinavian Airlines has received approval to resume service for their SK997/SK998 flight connecting Copenhagen and Shanghai from September 29th, and the airline deployed their latest Airbus A350 aircraft for the route.

SAS Scandinavian Airlines A321LR

SAS has just received its first long-range A321LR aircraft from Airbus Hamburg factory in Germany last week.

The airline has become a new operator of this latest efficient long-range single-aisle aircraft which uses 10% of sustainable aviation fuel.

SAS has chosen to have a cabin layout in three service classes, with 22 SAS Business, 12 seats SAS Plus and 123 SAS Go seats.

While originally planned for flying on “skinner” routes like Copenhagen – Boston, with the continued uncertainty with ease of travel restrictions, we are more likely to see the aircraft being flown between the airlines Scandinavian hubs and other business “heavy” destinations like London and Frankfurt this winter.

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport



SAS A350 Livery Rear View

The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.

More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China. All students departing from China who purchase SAS flight tickets in economy class only need to show a valid student ID at the airport check-in counter to check in one extra piece of luggage. This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
