The return service will then leave HKIA every Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 0905, arriving back into the Swedish capital at 1435.
“Today we are writing a new chapter in the history of SAS, as we launch our direct route between Stockholm and Hong Kong. We are very proud to be linking Stockholm and the rest of Scandinavia with Hong Kong through a convenient new connection. We look forward to offering a warm welcome on board to all our customers,” said Rickard Gustafson, president & CEO of SAS.
To coincide with the launch, SAS has also relaunched its lounge at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. The lounge now covers an area of 1,400m² and offers a buffet area, showers, new meeting rooms, workstations, charging stations and Wi-Fi, plus a play area for children.
