New York — Travel to Sweden is about to get a boost from Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) when it inaugurates daily flights between Stockholm, Scandinavia’s premier travel destination, and Los Angeles on March 14, 2016.
This marks the first time in more than 20 years that SAS will operate non-stop, flights from Los Angeles to the stunning Scandinavian destination of Sweden.
Up to now, west coast travelers have had to book non-direct flights to Sweden, adding hours of travel time switching planes in one city hub or other to reach their final destination.
Compare this scenario with daily departures that will operate during the summer months and five to six weekly flights in winter.
SAS’ new service will streamline travelers’ way leaving them with a little less jet lag, glitches and more time to enjoy Sweden.
Sweden’s natural beauty, island-rich archipelago, wilderness, aboriginal Sámi people in the north, and long tradition of Scandinavian folk-music-melodies form the back-story to this multi-faceted country that stands at the cusp of two major travel trends: cultural and culinary tourism.
Appearing on many bucket lists, Sweden is a place that promises life-changing experiences: trekking or cross-country skiing through Lappland; cruising its archipelagos; touring Umea, 2014’s European Cultural Capital; or setting out on an expediton to catch, cook and dine on Sweden’s locally-sourced ingredients on a seafood safari.
To celebrate– the NORTH-Nordic Food Festival, the world’s largest Nordic food festival outside Scandinavia – will feature A Taste of Stockholm for two days on November 16 and 17 in Los Angeles.
Recently awarded a Michelin star, Stockholm’s restaurant VOLT will work side by side with Rekorderlig Cider to prepare a gourmet multi-course dinner for two nights for a blogger tasting and to udate the travel trade on travel trends.
The fifth busiest airport in the world and second in the U.S., Los Angeles International links Sweden with an untapped market with great potential. Likewise, Los Angeles is a popular destination for Scandinavian travelers wishing to visit Southern California or onwards to destinations such as Hawaii or even south of the border to Mexico and other destinations.
Frequent Flyers enrolled in the SAS EuroBonus Program can expect an enhanced in-flight experience with world-class cabins and seats converting into fully flat beds in Business Class; more comfort in Plus, the premium economy class as well as in Go, economy class.
Because SAS will increase its fleet from 12 to 16 aircraft in 2016, the carrier will also launch new routes between Miami and Oslo and Copenhagen and will increase the number of flights from Stockholm to New York and Chicago in 2016. www.visitsweden.com
