Increased travelling during the summer resulted in over a million passengers in July.

July was a month with an increased number of travellers. 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. The 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.
