SAS - Scandinavian Airlines, is shifting gears at Stockholm Arlanda Airport for the summer season and will expand access and the range of destinations available with the addition of two new destinations, Tivat (Montenegro) and Pärnu (Estonia).

In response to the rising demand for travels for the summer season, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) adds two new destinations from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, to Tivat (Montenegro) and Pärnu (Estonia).

SAS continues to expand and relaunch its network of routes from Sweden and Stockholm Arlanda in order to meet the growing demand for air travel. In late June, the airline will launch a new summer route to Estonia’s biggest holiday destination, Pärnu, as well as a route to the coastal city of Tivat in southwestern Montenegro.

During the peak summer season, SAS will offer non-stop service between Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) and Pärnu Airport (EPU) for seven weeks.

The direct route between Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) and Tivat Airport (TIV) will be served twelve times starting in late June.

The airline previously announced that it will launch non-stop service during the spring to the Polish capital, Warsaw. The direct route between Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) and Warsaw Chopin (WAW) will be served six times a week starting in early May.

As was announced earlier, in early June travellers will be able to fly non-stop for the first time between Sweden and Canada, since SAS is launching a new direct route to Toronto from Stockholm Arlanda. The Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) – Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) route will have four weekly departures using the brand-new Airbus 321LR aircraft.

Passengers flying with SAS can choose to purchase biofuel (sustainable aviation fuel) and thus help reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 per cent. As part of SAS’s work to achieve net zero, the airline has also chosen to carbon-offset all flight tickets for which a EuroBonus number is provided when booked. The A321LR aircraft type that will serve the route between Stockholm and Toronto is part of SAS’s ongoing rejuvenation of its aircraft fleet and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions compared to earlier generations of similar aircraft.

Swedavia’s work to achieve net zero aviation
Swedavia has carried out sustainability work for many years. All ten of its airports achieved the goal of zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations by year-end 2020. Swedavia also works actively to promote the switch to sustainable aviation fuel and has the goal that five per cent of all fuel used for refuelling at Swedish airports shall be fossil-free by 2025. Swedavia’s climate transition work and pioneering work to operate climate-smart airports have won international awards, and in 2021 the trade organisation Airports Council International (ACI) named Stockholm Arlanda Airport Eco-Innovation Airport of the Year. Swedavia offers all travellers flying from one of its airports the option of buying biofuel for their entire journey or parts of it via flygreenfund.se/swedavia.
