The airline is canceling more than half of its scheduled flights, adding to widespread travel disruptions already occurring across Europe. As of 8 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, SAS had canceled 236 flights, a 78% of its daily volume. In Norway, these include 21% of flights departing Oslo Gardermoen Airport; 16% leaving Tromso Airport, and 15% of flights departing Trondheim and Kristiansand airports.
Confirm flights if booked to fly on Scandanavian Airlines through July 9. Do not check out of accommodations until onward travel is confirmed. Arrive early at airports to prevent your seat from being allocated to a standby passenger. Consider alternate arrangements for critical travel.
