Additionally, while the region may not have scenery to beat much of Scandinavia, what we DO have is pubs + shops, and lots of them. At LHR SAS operate a very busy schedule all day every day - with a strong business bias. At weekends they are full with high spending weekenders. The cost of living in the UK is a lot lower than Scandinavia. Sterling's schedules are very leisure orientated, so I expect they will be strongly marketing these routes in NOR, SWE and DEN and we can expect to see an increase in the number of Scandinavians drinking in our cities' pubs and shopping at weekends.
