Kick-off 2020 by booking one of these incredible deals on SAS Scandinavian Airlines for travel this spring, summer, or fall. Flights to Copenhagen (CPH), Stockholm (ARN), Oslo (OSL), and other cities throughout Europe are as low as $328 roundtrip.

Save even more if you travel with a checked bag. Scandinavian Airlines sells a fare that includes one free checked bag for about $55 more roundtrip than the lowest available hand-luggage only fare. Compare that with the $120-$160 extra that other major carriers usually charge for a standard Economy fare, and you'll save big if you prefer to purchase a classic Economy ticket.

Travel Availability

  • Travel Period: March 1 - November 6, 2020.
  • Travel Days of the week: Daily, but will vary by city-to-city pair.
  • Blackout Dates: June 20 - August 11.
  • Minimum Stay: A Saturday night stay is required.

Departure days will vary by city pair as SAS doesn't operate every route on a daily basis. Itineraries from Boston are only available from March 29, 2020, onward. Flights from Miami are operated on limited days of the week, with the lowest fares starting in late September.

A few of the connecting flights listed may require an overnight layover in Scandinavia. This can be a bonus opportunity to visit another city in Europe before flying back to the U.S., and it can potentially save hundreds of dollars as well. Click on the fare details below for more booking info.

The sale advertises blackout dates from June 20 - August 11, but additional blackout dates may apply and we've spotted some routes from Boston and Chicago with limited availability for peak summer travel dates in July.

Sale Period

Tickets must be booked by January 13, 2020, or while supplies last. Seats are selling out quickly for some of the most popular travel periods so we recommend booking soon.

These prices are for SAS Go Light fares, which only include a carry-on bag (up to 18 lbs.) plus a small personal item. Checked bag fees for Go Light fares are $60 each way. If you need to check a bag, it's much cheaper to purchase the next level Go Smart fare for around $28 more each way ($55 roundtrip). Go Smart fares include one free checked bag.

Seat Assignments

You may choose your own assignments from standard economy class seats that are still available during or after booking. Both Go Light and Go Smart fares have limited free seat selection in the back of the plane.

Alternate Fares

Go Smart fares will cost an extra $55 roundtrip and will include one free checked bag. This is a much cheaper option than adding a checked bag to the Go Light fare à la carte.

There are several destinations in Scandinavia on sale. Search for some super deals to places like Helsinki (HEL)Bergen (BGO), Aarhus (AAR), Gothenburg (GOT), and more. Flights to other destinations throughout Europe are also on sale by SAS, but you may find connections to European destinations outside Scandinavia to require an overnight layover on the return flight.

If you want to visit multiple destinations in Europe, this sale can be an excellent opportunity to book an open-jaw itinerary by flying into one city and back from another, since it's such a widespread deal covering several European airports.
