The number of passengers traveling with SAS continues to increase. In October, 1.4 million passengers flew with the company, which is a quarter of a million more than in September.
In October, 1.4 million passengers flew with SAS, which is an increase of more than 130 percent compared to the same month last year and another sign that more and more people are flying again. Demand continues to increase and so does SAS’s capacity, which was 100 percent higher than the same month last year.
The cabin factor for October was 62 percent on SAS flights, an improvement of 23 percentage points compared to October last year. Despite the improvements in October, which was the eighth month in a row with more passengers for SAS, there is still a long way to go before the levels before the pandemic. 1.4 million passengers in October corresponds to approximately 53 percent of the passengers that the company had before the pandemic in October 2019.
“It is positive to see that the number of travelers continues to increase even after the summer season and that ticket sales are rising. In October, the number of passengers flying with SAS increased by more than 250,000, compared with September. The rise continues and both capacity and cabin factor are higher this month. We still face challenges and an unpredictable future, which makes it extremely important to remain competitive. We must be flexible to be able to meet changes in customer demand in the future, says Anko van der Werff, President and CEO of SAS.
