At the end of April, SAS is launching a new route between New York and Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city.

Gothenburg is one of the world’s most sustainable destinations, now more accessible for travelers from the US. The route between Newark Liberty International Airport and Landvetter will be trafficked by brand-new Airbus 321 Long-Range plane with three each-way departures every week, substantially shortening the travel time. The departures from New York will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and from Gothenburg on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The direct route will initially be trafficked for the whole summer season of 2023 and return for the 2024 summer season.

Gothenburg is a relatively small city packed with all the highlights of a major international destination: culture, shopping, world-class restaurants and stunning nature. To boot, this year Gothenburg is celebrating its 400th anniversary with many events across the city.
