SAS åbner ruten Stavanger-Houston op med ren business class sæder den 30. august for at imødekomme et ønske fra virkesomhederne som i dag sender folk via Oslo/København og videre til USA for at komme til det forsat olietunge Texas rent virksomhedsmæssigt.

Det har været på rygtebasis længe og nu prøver SAS dette meget spændende træk med at operere en rent Boeing 737-700 med 44 business class sæder. Flyet er en wet lease som SAS har arrangeret.

SAS skriver i deres pressemeddelse følgende:

SAS launches services between Stavanger and Houston

SAS is launching services between Stavanger and Houston on August 20. This fulfils the wishes of leading players in the oil industry for better connections between Norway, and the rest of Scandinavia, and Houston, Texas.

“The route we have established is a tailored product for a defined market with particular travel needs,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS.

The route will be operated by a business version of the Boeing 737-700 and will have an SAS Long Haul Business Class concept on board, with just 44 comfortable business seats, along with a modern inflight entertainment system and full-service meals and service.

“The favorable timetable provides excellent connections throughout Scandinavia in both directions, while Houston is a hub for places to the south and west such as Mexico, Los Angeles, Dallas and Phoenix with the Star Alliance,” says Rickard Gustafson.

SAS has entered into a “wet lease” agreement with the company PrivatAir, which has this special version of the Boeing 737-700. The aircraft will carry SAS’s distinctive colors and logo.

The route will launch on August 20, just ahead of the major oil exhibition in Stavanger, Offshore Northern Seas (ONS). Tickets for route, which will operate daily except Saturdays, go on sale on April 29.

 

Ruten vil være på 4862 mil eller godt 7825 kilometer og eftersom det vil være i en ren business class vil dette være en klar forbedring for de primært forretningsrejsende som vil benytte denne rute.

Fra Bonusfeber’s synspunkt syntes vi det er interessant og vi ser også muligheden for at der kan komme gode muligheder for at få bonusbilletter til denne rute når den først er kommet i gang.
