SAS Signs Code-Share Agreement With ANA

Scandinavian Airlines has signed a code-share agreement with Star Alliance partner ANA of Japan. The agreement was signed between Shinichiro Ito, President and CEO of ANA, and Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of Scandinavian Airlines, in Tokyo.

As of May 23, customers will be able to book ANA operated flights between Tokyo's Narita International Airport and Sapporo, Osaka and Fukuoka, which will operate with an SK flight code. ANA will also add its NH code to SAS' Tokyo to Copenhagen flights. ANA will at a later stage also add its NH code to SAS flights from: London to Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm; Frankfurt to Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm; and from Munich to Copenhagen and Oslo.

"It is almost to the day 60 years since we established the first route between Scandinavia and Tokyo. Tokyo is now one of our most popular long-haul destinations, and this agreement with ANA signifies the importance of Japan in the SAS network and the possibility to transport our customers to other important destinations in Japan," said Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO, Scandinavian Airlines.

Shinichiro Ito, ANA President and CEO, said, "We are pleased to welcome Scandinavian Airlines and as a new code-share partner and be able to cooperate each other network intra continent, Europe and Japan. Our customers will be able to enjoy a wider network to Europe by this cooperation."

SAS flies daily to Tokyo from Amsterdam via Copenhagen.
