STOCKHOLM, 10 February 2022: Scandinavian will expand its
services in North America by launching a new direct route to Toronto from
Stockholm in June 2022, Swedavia Airports reports.

The airline will offer four weekly flights from Sweden with
a brand-new Airbus 321LR aircraft operating out of its base at Stockholm
Arlanda Airport to Canada’s largest city, Toronto.

The new service to Toronto will improve connectivity to
North America, one of Sweden’s largest trading partners, and there’s a large
exchange business and leisure traffic with Canada.

There are strong connections between Sweden and Canada. More
than 200 Swedish companies have offices in Canada, where the majority are in
Toronto.

The majority of the passengers between Stockholm and Toronto
travel for leisure purposes, of which half visit relatives and friends, while
the rest travel for business purposes. Nearly half of the travellers are
Swedes, and the others mainly Canadians.

The Stockholm-Toronto route will operate on Mondays,
Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and Toronto-Stockholm on Tuesdays, Thursdays,
Saturdays and Sundays.

The A321LR is part of SAS’s ongoing renewal of the aircraft
fleet and will reduce climate-impacting emissions compared to previous
generations of similar aircraft.

Toronto will be the fifth destination in North America with
nonstop service from Stockholm Arlanda. SAS already flies to Miami (MIA), New
York (EWR) and Chicago (ORD).

Finnair flies directly to Miami (MIA), New York (JFK) and
Los Angeles (LAX). Ahead of the summer season, Delta Airlines will resume its
route to New York (JFK) and United Airlines to New York (EWR).
