The flights

Scandinavian Airlines’ hub in Copenhagen, Denmark is a focal point for the carrier, connecting its long-haul and European networks. Washington, D.C.-based passengers can travel there directly on SAS’s Airbus A330s, where onward connections to many European destinations await.

One of these is the Finnish capital city, Helsinki. SAS flies there directly from the Danish capital, with Irish regional carrier CityJet sometimes operating these services on its behalf. The former of these tends to operate Airbus A320neo aircraft on this crucial Nordic corridor. Meanwhile, the latter generally favors the Bombardier CRJ900.
