Compared to January 2018, capacity was unchanged while the number of passengers increased, leading to a 0.9 percentage point increase in the load factor to 64.9%. Currency adjusted unit revenue (PASK) increased with 3.6%. During the month, European/Intrascandinavian traffic fell slightly while Domestic and Intercontinental increased.

”Thanks to continued seasonal adjustments, both unit revenue as well as the cabin factor increased in January. Our most loyal customers and frequent flyers share our wish for more sustainable travel and we want them to know that SAS strives to reduce our carbon footprint on a daily basis. As part of that work, from February 1 and onwards, we are offsetting the carbon footprint on all tickets booked using a EuroBonus number. This is one of several environment and sustainability initiatives we are pursuing and means that approximately 40 percent of SAS’s passenger-related carbon dioxide emissions will be offset going forward,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO, SAS.
