SAS Cargo said it is happy to tap the belly holds of its passenger sibling after Scandinavian Airlines announced a series of route expansions in October. According to the plans SAS will start with four weekly departures between Copenhagen and India and three weekly departures between Copenhagen and San Francisco.

¡°For quite some time we have been looking for the right solution for our customers with a need for direct air cargo transport between India and Scandinavia. Therefore, SAS’ decision is very relevant for us. The opening of San Francisco as a new destination will also be good news for our customers, since we already have quite some tonnages between Scandinavia and the American west coast,¡± said Kenneth Marx, President and CEO for SAS Cargo Group A/S.

The new routes will not affect SAS’ current route network since the airline will add another Airbus A340 to the fleet. On average an Airbus A340 can be loaded with approximately 15 tons cargo per trip.
