Celebrating the first direct Stockholm - Los Angeles flight

The first direct flight from Arlanda to LAX took off on the morning of March 14. The inaugural flight was celebrated at Arlanda with speeches by Swedish Enterprise and Innovation Minister Mikael Damberg and representatives from SAS. And in true Los Angeles style, fresh juices were served and a yoga team exercised at the gate. Watch the slideshow from the celebration below.
