This flight is not only the longest in SAS’ history but also the airline’s first flight to Lima.
According to a Facebook post by SAS-Scandinavian Airlines, Hagbard Viking has departed Lima on a special mission. Partnering with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SAS has flown about 290 Scandinavian travelers, who have been stranded in Peru, back home to Scandinavia.
Clocking a distance of 11,000 km, this flight is not only the longest in SAS’ history but also the first SAS flight to Lima.
The post added that “Enabling stranded travelers to return home is one of our most important assignments during these extraordinary times – and we at SAS are proud to be able to contribute to this key mission for the Scandinavian societies.”
