The Red Dot Award, one of the most prestigious and internationally recognized design competitions, celebrates outstanding achievements in the field of design, creativity, and innovation. The SAS app has received an award in the Brands & Communication Design 2023 category – a testament to the app’s seamless user experience.
The SAS app has been around for more than ten years and is used by millions of travelers every year. In 2022, SAS set out to enhance the app with a focus on improving the customer experience.

The redesigned app offers a range of new features, including a simplified booking process, travel recommendations, real-time flight updates, and easy access to boarding passes and travel documents. It also boasts improved navigation and a visually appealing interface that reflects SAS’ new brand identity.
“When we started building the redesigned app, our goal was to provide a user-friendly experience that makes travel planning simple and hassle-free, through a beautiful and modern design. We’re delighted to see that our efforts are being recognized,” says Massimo Pascotto, Head of Prepare & Travel, Digital & IT at SAS.
