Skiing in the Scandinavian mountains gets even closer for the upcoming winter season as SAS launches their route from London Heathrow to Scandinavian Mountains Airport on December 26th.
"The huge interest for alpine skiing and winter holidays in Scandinavia has seen an increase over the last few years, and despite the ongoing pandemic we are optimistic about the upcoming season as our guests and citizens are being vaccinated. Furthermore, the accessibility for international skiing enthusiasts will be even more convenient with this new flight from London to our destinations in both Sälen and Trysil", said Stefan Sjöstrand, CEO at SkiStar.
After what has been one and a half year of uncertainty for our international guests, it seems like the interest SkiStar experienced even before the covid-19 outbreak is steady, and with SAS launching this route means that the faith in the demand for travel to Scandinavia for skiing holidays is a safe option with good quality for a wide range of skiers from neighboring countries.
"Flying to the mountains is an even more efficient way of travelling for many, making this a more relevant option when they plan their holidays. We are thrilled that SAS values our destinations and also see this as an opportunity. We are looking forward to welcoming our new and recurring guests this winter," Sjöstrand continued.
The Scandinavian Mountains Airport is located in between Sälen and Trysil, only a 10-minute transfer from the nearest ski area. Scandinavian Mountains Airport is the first in the world with a remote tower (RTC) which is in use already from the opening and will be the first new airport in Europe that is fully approved according to the EASA regulations.
