Alicante-Elche Airport has started a new route to Bodo (Norway) by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), which will operate the connection every Saturday during the summer season. This new flight will allow travellers flying from Alicante to experience the midnight sun that occurs in this area during summer, as well as other charms of the Scandinavian destination, while also attracting new visitors to the Costa Blanca.
To celebrate the announcement, the airport prepared a commemorative cake of the route that was cut by representatives of Scandinavian Airlines, one of the airlines that has operated for the longest time from Alicante Airport. Airport director Tomás Melgar distributed the cake among passengers who were waiting to board the first plane bound for Bodo.
