Demand for travel continues to increase and SAS will start two new routes to the Canary Islands, direct flights to Tenerife from Stockholm and to Gran Canaria from Gothenburg. The new routes start on October 30.
SAS offers a comprehensive program to the Canary Islands during the winter of 21/22 with 6 routes and 17 departures per week which during the Christmas and New Year weekends increases to 30 departures per week.
Although many countries are now easing their entry restrictions, most countries still require various types of travel and test certificates, why it is important to be prepared well before arriving at the airport. To make it easier for travelers, SAS has developed a new digital platform, SAS Travel Ready Center.

SAS Traffic figures - July 2021
July was a month with increased numbers of travelers. More than a million passengers chose to fly with SAS, which is an increase of almost 70% compared with June. Capacity was raised during the month with increased frequency and destinations. The load factor ended at 60%, which is the highest number since February 2020.
“We see the numbers improving gradually which is pleasing. However, we do naturally remain cautious as there are still a high number of uncertainties ahead of us. Remaining travel restrictions are still affecting passengers and we do everything possible to give our customers a smooth travel experience. SAS is offering flexible tickets and rebooking possibilities. We also provide digital tools which help passengers track updates to restrictions to make it easier to travel,” says Anko van der Werff, President and CEO at SAS.
