SAS enhances long-haul biz class

3rd Oct 2007

SAS Scandinavian Airlines has enhanced its long-haul Business class with a number of innovations to ensure even simpler and more hassle free traveling. New features include the introduction of a unique last-minute Business class fare, a new comfort kit, upgraded audio/video-on-demand and a ‘breakfast on the go’ concept.

The airline has introduced a Business Class fare that is available right up until departure and still guarantees a seat in Business. The new A class fare is now available on all non-stop SAS routes between Copenhagen/Stockholm and Bangkok, Beijing, Chicago, Dubai, New York, Seattle, Tokyo and Washington DC.


“SAS’ new A class ticket is uniquely designed for Business travelers that value the importance of face-to-face meetings, and have to make last minute travel decisions and be somewhere in the world at a specific time, even if the flight is only hours away,” said Lars Sandahl S¿rensen, Chief Commercial Officer, SAS International.



As a result of increased security check-in regulations, Scandinavian Airlines has introduced a new detachable comfort kit. It is specifically designed to ensure passengers a smoother passage through security, as one part of the comfort kit is a see-through one liter bag, in line with security regulations.


As many passengers want to sleep as long as possible, the airline is offering the new Grab & Go breakfast concept during summer. Available on flights arriving in the morning, passengers can opt for the Grab & Go breakfast bag, including coffee, when exiting their flight.


Furthermore, Scandinavian Airlines has also upgraded its audio/video-on-demand system with additional audio channels. The airline now offers 30 audio channels and 46 video titles onboard.
