During the winter season 2019-2020, SAS will fly directly from Aalborg to the new airport, Scandinavian Mountains Airport, at the popular ski areas Sälen and Trysil.
From December 29 you can fly with SAS directly to the ski areas Sälen in Sweden and Trysil in Norway with over 250 slopes all together. With only 25-40 minutes drive from the airport, the new SAS route is among the fastest ways to get directly to the ski slopes and mountain areas in Norway and Sweden.
At the same time, SAS and SkiStar enter into a strategic partnership that will simplify the booking of ski trips.
- We are the first airline to offer international routes to the new airport. The combination of short travel times, attractive departure times as well as good skiing and nature experiences in the Swedish and Norwegian mountains is something that many demand. We will continue to develop our cooperation with SkiStar and make it even more simple and attractive to experience the Scandinavian winter, says Karl Sandlund, Executive Vice President Commercial, SAS.
