SAS Scandinavian Airlines is set to launch its first flights to Africa in many years by opening services to Morocco from November 2023.
The carrier plans to operate 1X-weekly flights to Agadir-Al Massira Airport from Copenhagen Airport and Stockholm Arlanda Airport using an Airbus A320neo aircraft configured with 180 seats in two classes.
The routes will be seasonal, running through March 2024. According to SAS, Agadir is an ideal winter sun destination for Scandinavians, boasting sandy beaches and golf courses.
“We are thrilled to witness the revival of global travel and are pleased to offer new destinations this winter,” says Erik Westman, SAS’s Executive Vice President and CCO. Westman adds, “The addition of Agadir to our network means that we will fly to Africa again for the first time in many years.”
The announcement follows SAS’s recent revelation that it will reintroduce seasonal flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport from Copenhagen, its first service to the Thai capital in almost ten years.
