A press release by the Government Offices informs that the King and Queen's State Visit to Australia is scheduled to be held 7-12 November. They will go on the invitation of Governor General Michael Jeffery.

Traveling in the royal entourage will be Minister for Foreign Affairs, Laila Freivalds, as well as a delegation of representatives from the Swedish industry and trade.

The destinations in the programme includes Canberra, Sydney, Adelaide, Ayers Rock/Uluru and Perth.

Oh... what a shame, it would have been lovely to have Their Majesties in Melbourne. Still, it shall be a visit worth watching no doubt.

I sincerely hope that you are'nt Australian, after making such a comment. There is plenty for Their Majesties to do here, and I am sure we shall find out the exact purpose of the trip at a closer date.

Any idea of if they will charter a plane to fly down here? Would be great to see Scandinavian Airlines makes its appearance at Sydney Airport, even a small size plane will do.

Their Majesties are coming to Perth! That's great, i might be able to see them then. Pity they arent going to Melbourne, which is one of the best capital cities of Australia in my opinion.

I doubt if Scandinavian Airlines shall fly Their Majesties into Australia. It will more than likely be a Qantas or possibly a British Airways jet.

At the present time, I do believe that Scandinavian Airlines dont fly direct to Australia. Those who wish to travel to Australia have to catch a connecting flight with another major international carrier. Mind you, I should know this (hence my schoooling within the industry) but of course, I could be wrong. If I am, lets just hope I never book you an outbound flight.lol.

Is there anyone who could give a more accurate response to the SAS situation in Australia?

With kind regards,

"MII"

MII you are correct, Scandinavian Airlines doesnt fly to Australia, in fact (correct me if im wrong though) they have never flown to Australia before (with the exception of codeshare flights). They do, however, have an office at Sydney City.

For passengers if they want to fly to Scandinavia, they would need to transit at either Singapore, Bangkok (Crown Princess Mary of Denmark flew with Thai when she came to Australia earlier this year), Tokyo, or China. Singapore Airlines fly to Copenhagen, Thai Airlines fly to Copenhagen and Stockholm. While Scandinavian Airlines fly to Singapore, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo from Copenhagen.

Having said that, it just would be great to see Scandinavian Airlines makes a special apperance at Sydney Airport!

Ah, of course! I totally forgot about Thai Airways.lol. Thankyou Scanorama

I am led to believe that SAS do indeed have an office at Sydney City. Let me see what I can find out.

My kind regards,

Don´t you think that they will use one of the state planes? Or are those to small and inconvinient to make such a long flight? So if you don´t get a plane that has Scandinavian written on it you might get one with Swedish Air Force on it, and that might not be that common in Australia as well.

I guess that they will travel on one of the state planes, they do that sometimes when they go on longer trips on official business, it's more comfortable and it allows them to work and prepare (and of course relax more) during the flight.

The King paid a State Visit to Australia in 1982, between 26 March and 6 April to the then being Governor-General Sir Zelman Cowen. The Queen did not accompany him that time, since she was at home being pregnant with Princess Madeleine.
