Nearly 3 million passengers traveled with SAS in June

Jul 15, 2015

The number of passengers traveling with SAS increased slightly compared to same month last year and reached the highest reported number for a single month. Unit revenue continues to develop favorably and increased with 4.8%.

Scheduled capacity increased with nearly 1% and number of passengers increased with 0.5%. Currency adjusted unit revenue and yield increased with 4.8% and 5.2% respectively, reaffirming the positive underlying trend during the year.

Strong traffic in June shows that customers value both the business and leisure travel offered by SAS, resulting in a record number of passengers. During the month we announced the routes for the first new Airbus A350, which will enter service in January 2020. The A350 is the most fuel-efficient long-haul aircraft available, emitting 30% less CO2 compared to previous generation of aircraft. We see a demand for more sustainable air travel and this is an important step on our ambitious path to reduce emissions, says Rickard Gustafson, CEO of SAS.
