Scandinavia’s largest airline SAS has returned to Stansted Airport following a 14 year absence.
On Monday (October 26), the nordic airline carrier began new flights from the Essex airport to Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg.
Fares for the daily service start from £61 one way to the destination on the west coast of Sweden, which is renowned for its spectacular coastal scenery.
Andrew Harrison, Stansted Airport’s managing director, said: “I’m delighted to welcome SAS back to Stansted with what will no doubt be a very popular service to and from Gothenburg.
“This is great news and adds even more choice of airline to the already extensive European network on offer at Stansted. I’m sure the new service will be very well received within our catchment area, especially by business and leisure passengers wishing to travel to Sweden’s second largest city.
