SAS Traffic figures - August 2020

The total number of passengers and capacity in August decreased by 74% and 73% respectively, versus the same period last year. However, August also recorded a small increase of 12
 000 passengers compared to July this year.

SAS’ traffic continues to be negatively impacted by COVID-19. In August, total capacity was down by 73.4% compared to the same period last year and number of passengers decreased by 2.1 million. Demand has recovered somewhat better within Scandinavia than in other parts of our network and SAS has deployed its capacity accordingly.

“During fall we aim to increase the number of flights and re-open more routes, in line with the re-bounce in demand. Primarily we’ll resume domestic traffic in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, but also re-open 18 routes to key European destinations. Furthermore, we aim to resume flights to Asia and once again offer flights across all three continents where we normally operate,” says Rickard Gustafson, CEO SAS.

Yield – Passenger revenues/RPK (scheduled)
PASK – Passenger revenues/ASK (scheduled)
Change in COemissions per available seat kilometers – SAS passenger related carbon emissions divided with total available seat kilometers (incl. non-revenue and EuroBonus), rolling 12 months
Carbon offsetting of passenger related emissions – Share of SAS passenger related carbon emissions compensated by SAS (EuroBonus members, youth tickets and SAS' staff travel)

From fiscal year 2020 we report change in CO2 emissions in total and per Available Seat Kilometers (ASK) to align with our overall goal to reduce our total CO2 emissions by 25% by 2025, compared to 2005.
