Sky Team Alliance deal makes Schiphol major hub for Norwegian travelers to the US

US Airways is the last air carrier to open direct flights from US to Oslo airport, as their first non-stop service from Philadelphia landed last week. Another alliance may mean that travelers from other cities in Norway may fly directly to Europe for a connection over the Atlantic.

The Sky Team Alliance has included Delta as partner, and as Alliance partner KLM, has non-stop flights from Oslo, Torp, Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim to Amsterdam, more travelers may use Schiphol airport in Amsterdam as a direct hub for connecting flights over the Herring pond, without flying over Oslo airport.

The Sky Team Alliance has announced that they will concentrate on flights to the following US destinations: Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis-St.Paul, New York JFK, Cincinnati, Memphis and Salt Lake City.
