In October 1.4 million passengers flew with SAS, an increase of more than 130% compared to the same month last year. Customer demand continues to increase and so does SAS’ capacity, which was 100% higher than the same month last year. The load factor for October was 62%, an improvement of 23 percentage points compared to October last year.
“It’s positive to see that the increase in travelers continues also after the summer season, and that the ticket sales are going up. In October, passengers flying with SAS increased with more than 250.000, compared to September. The ramp-up continues and both capacity and load factor are higher this month. We still face challenges and an unpredictable future, which makes it very important to stay competitive. We have to be agile to be able to respond to changes in customer demand going forward," says Anko van der Werff, President & CEO of SAS.
