Star Alliance carrier SAS is to open transatlantic services to Toronto from both Copenhagen and Stockholm this year.

The carrier will operate long-range Airbus A321LRs on the services which commence in June.

SAS states that it will operate to the Canadian city three-times weekly from Copenhagen and four-times weekly from Stockholm.

Opening of the routes is still conditional on securing regulatory approval.

But the airline says it will strengthen its North American network with the service, and the timing of the flights will enable “good connections” at either end.

SAS will use A321LRis configured with 157 seats across a three-class layout, with 22 seats in the business-class cabin and 12 in premium economy.

Toronto will take the number of North American destinations operated by SAS to seven, including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington DC.
