SAS service grounded

- +

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will halt its flights to Bangkok on Monday, ending more than 60 years of service linking the Nordic countries and Thailand. 

Until recently, SAS operated a daily non-stop flight between Bangkok and Copenhagen on an Airbus 340-300 jet with 245 seats in three classes - business, premium economy and economy.

SAS will turn to Thai Airways International to carry its passengers to Thailand through a code-share agreement struck recently on three Scandinavia-bound routes operated by THAI. The Thai flag carrier, which was founded with the help of SAS 53 years ago, operates three non-stop flights - Bangkok-Copenhagen, Bangkok-Stockholm and Bangkok-Oslo.
