The number of passengers traveling with SAS amounted to 1.4 million in January, an increase by 89 percent compared to the same period last year. SAS’ passenger demand continued to be strong with RPK increasing by 68 percent while capacity increased by 22 percent, compared to the same period last year. The flown load factor for January was 68 percent, an improvement by 19 percentage points compared to January last year.
“January traffic came in at 1.4 million passengers, an 89 percent increase compared to January 2022. It is a healthy figure during the winter season when we, due to our usual seasonality, see lower passenger numbers. Our flown load factor of 68 percent exceeds the pre-pandemic level of 65 percent in January 2019. We continue to make progress with SAS FORWARD and our chapter 11 process in the U.S. We recently concluded our aircraft lessor negotiations, and we expect to achieve our targeted cost reductions related to annual aircraft lease and financing costs,” says Anko van der Werff, President & CEO of SAS.
