European carriers expand China routes

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines have announced they will increase their flight capacity to China in the next two years. SAS is to commence flights between Copenhagen and Shanghai next year. The flights will start on 1 March five times a week, with further connections offered by its partners Air China and Shanghai Airlines. “The demand for traffic to China is again growing significantly and we see the need for an additional route, complementing our successful Copenhagen-Beijing and other Asian routes,” explained Robin Kamark, chief commercial offer at SAS. Meanwhile, KLM has increased its frequency from Amsterdam to Guangzhou by three extra flights through its codeshare with China Southern Airlines.
