airBaltic to start codeshare flights with SAS

Latvian airline airBaltic has announced a codeshare agreement with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), which aims to offer connections between Latvia, Scandinavia among other locations.

Martin Gauss, chief executive officer at airBaltic, said: “We are very pleased with this strong cooperation. By expanding our partner network, we are offering more convenient travel options to our passengers. Already this summer season we are enabling passengers to choose from more than 300 destinations with one stop by using airBaltic partner airlines.”

airBaltic will put its code BT on flights connecting Riga and Alesund, Bergen, Stavanger, Tromso, Trondheim via such common gateways as Oslo and Copenhagen airport. SAS will place its flight code SK on direct flights from Stockholm Arlanda, Copenhagen and Oslo airports and vice versa, ensuring transportation between Scandinavian capitals and Riga, as well as connecting traffic from SAS’s whole network and Riga via its three hubs.

Annelie Nässéen, executive vice president sales & marketing at SAS, added: “We see great benefit in this code-share partnership agreement on a number of routes, providing better connections to and from Scandinavia with reciprocal frequent flyer benefits for our travelers.”
