As such, SAS and PrivatAir will be the first carrier to fly directly to Boston from Scandinavia.
The Boston flight commenced with a 737-800 aircraft configured with 92 seats and will switch to a smaller Boeing 737-700 BBJ (Boeing Business Jet) that has most recently served the Copenhagen-Newark route. To support this decision made by SAS PrivatAir will continue to operate the new route with the reconfigured Boeing 737-700 BBJ in SAS livery, accommodating 80 passengers on board, 20 of them in business class. Under the ACMI ‘wet-lease’ agreement with SAS, PrivatAir provides the aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance.
Flight SK927 is scheduled to depart Copenhagen at 12:50, arriving in Boston at 15:20, with the return leg SK928 leaving the US city at 17:30, landing back in Copenhagen at 07:00 the following day (all local time). This practical timetable is set to enable easy connections in both directions for both, leisure and business purposes.
"We are happy to once again expand our long-haul offer to North America by opening this ninth direct route to the USA. This daily offer, between Copenhagen and Boston, is part of our focus on making life simpler for our frequent travellers, a group of people who are an increasingly demanding flexible and direct options for travel to the US", says SAS Group CEO Rickard Gustafson.
