Business model

February 21, 2019 | Parking & Transportation | No Comments

SAS offering is built on a broad network with frequent departures to, from and within Scandinavia. We have an attractive product with a high degree of freedom of choice, designed for travelers’ business and leisure travel. Through our EuroBonus program, we reward our customers for their loyalty.

Our travel and cargo services are built on a production model in which SAS produces traffic on larger traffic flows with a uniform aircraft fleet, while smaller flows and regional traffic are flown via business partners (wet lease). Aircraft operations are supported by efficient ground handling services, technical aircraft maintenance and sales organizations together with an attractive product.

SAS makes life easier for people who travel frequently to, from, and within Scandinavia by offering smooth, attractively priced flights for those traveling on business and those traveling privately. We continually develop our services to provide all our travelers with a positive travel experience.

SAS’ strategy is to focus on frequent travelers and to be an airline that rewards its customers for their loyalty to us. The most frequent travelers also have the highest demands when it comes to their travel experience and our products and network are developed with this in mind. This leads to options that benefit all our customers.

Strategic priorities

SAS has strengthened its strategy for long-term sustainable profitability.

WIN SCANDINAVIA’S FREQUENT TRAVELERS
One of SAS’s strategic priorities is to win Scandinavia’s frequent travelers. Our focus is on these customers. If you’re taking five or more flights per year. Altogether, they represent around 60–70% of all flights to Scandinavia.

CREATE EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE OPERATING PLATFORMS
The industry is increasing. In light of this, SAS has to adapt its operations to remain competitive. We have established standards in London and Malaga. SAS will therefore be able to compete.

SECURE THE RIGHT CAPABILITIES
One of the SAS’s strategic areas. Our employees are an important prerequisite for our clients to strengthen our offering. Our commitment to our customers has been declining.

This order means SAS for the first time will have a single-type fleet, that consists of the market’s most efficient short- and medium-haul aircraft in terms of cost and environment. SAS is modernizing its short and long-haul fleet with new aircraft, taking deliveries of new Airbus A320neo, Airbus A330 Enhanced and Airbus A350’s aircraft until 2023. Combined with upgrades of the cabin interiors this will further modernize the aircraft fleet for the future. SHORT-HAUL SAS is investing in new Airbus A320neo and will by 2023 have at least 80 aircraft in service. Moreover, SAS has some options from the Manufacturer and have the possibility to increase the number of aircraft that can be leased from lessors. Alongside existing aircraft, this also creates flexibility for growth under the right circumstances. All of the aircraft will be equipped with SAS’s high-speed Wifi and have SAS’s appreciated new cabin interiors.
