Commenting on the inauguration was Paul Verhagen, SAS’ Chief Commercial Officer:

“Thailand and the Scandinavian countries have a long history of friendship and cooperation and returning with a direct route is a true pleasure.”

“The Bangkok route will offer a perfect entry point for wider Thailand and Asia and be a great option for both business and leisure travelers.”

“Thailand is a favorite destination among many passengers during the winter season and a lot of Scandinavians see Thailand as their home away from home”.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how this new route from Copenhagen will perform, and if successful, there could be scope to expand the frequencies going into the future.
