Scandinavian Airlines to resume flights to Aberdeen, Scotland

Scandinavian Airlines is resuming flights to Aberdeen International Airport in Scotland for the 1st time since March 2020 when the airline suspended flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting 27th June 2021, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will once again operate flights between Copenhagen, Denmark and Aberdeen, Scotland. The service will initially operate 3-times-a-week and ‘may increase subject to demand’. The schedule for Copenhagen-Aberdeen-Copenhagen route is:

  • Copenhagen-Aberdeen
  • Departure time: 18:15
  • Arrival time: 18:55
  • Flight time: 1 hour and 40 minutes
  • Flight number: SK1521
  • Frequency: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays
  • Aberdeen-Copenhagen
  • Departure time: 19:30
  • Arrival time: 22:05
  • Flight time: 1 hour and 35 minutes
  • Flight number: SK1521
  • Frequency: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays

Mark Beveridge, Operations Director at Aberdeen International Airport, said:

This is the first time the Copenhagen route will have operated from our airport since March 2020. It is great to see SAS reinstate the Copenhagen route which has obvious links to the energy sector. Copenhagen also previously appealed to our leisure passengers too and was named as Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel for 2019. Bringing back business safely remains a key priority at our airport and welcome the restart of this route.

We are very pleased to be able to restart our flights from Aberdeen to Copenhagen, as a vital part of rebuilding a global network. I am confident that the new connection will be successful and that we will be able to further strengthen our position in Aberdeen and the rest of UK when demand for international travel is increasing step by step.

SAS also presently operates a service to Stavanger from Aberdeen International Airport.

Recently, Denmark announced that it is now welcoming travellers from the United States and Britain. SAS has also announced resumption of flights to Tokyo. The airline has also announced a new route from London to Luleä and resumption of flights to New York.
