Scandinavian airline SAS is to launch the first direct flights between Stavanger and Houston in time for the biannual Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) oil conference in August.
The route will be served by a Boeing 737-700, with all of the economy class seating stripped out to make way for 44 comfortable, business-class passengers. 
 
The flight will operate every day except for Saturdays. 
 
“The route we have established is a tailored product for a defined market with particular travel needs,” Rickard Gustafson, the President and CEO of SAS, said in a statement. 
 
“The favourable 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.”
