In May, more than 400,000 passengers flew with SAS, an increase of about 20% compared with April. During the month, SAS increased capacity 9% to meet higher demand. Passenger numbers remain low compared with a normal year, but the increase compared with April is also reflected in an improved load factor, which rose almost 6 percentage points.
“We are looking forward to the summer and are pleased with the gradual increase in demand. To reduce uncertainty when booking flights, SAS is offering more flexible ticket rules and generous rebooking alternatives. To make it easier for passengers, we are also launching SAS Travel Ready Center, a digital tool to upload necessary travel documents and to access information about current travel restrictions,” says Karl Sandlund, acting CEO of SAS.
