‘SAS Go Light’ launches across selected European destinationsFrom 27 April 2016, passengers travelling with carry-on bags only will be able to fly at a lower price on all Scandinavian Airlines routes between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, including on all routes to and from the UK, as SAS announces the launch of SAS Go Light.
Launched to complement the existing SAS Go and SAS Plus products, SAS Go Light is designed for those customers who want to travel light with only carry-on bags, with fares around £10 lower each way than for SAS Go. The new concept is being introduced following very positive feedback after trials on selected routes from Scandinavia since autumn 2015.
“We’ve listened to our customers, who want a more scaled-down option and tickets in a lower price range for those traveling without check-in bags,” says Stephanie Smitt Lindberg, Vice President Customer Journey & Loyalty at SAS. “That’s why we’re now launching SAS Go Light for all European destinations. As SAS Go Light will complement our existing products, our customers will have more opportunity to choose the option that best meets their needs.”
As with all SAS tickets, SAS Go Light includes the option to cancel with a full refund within 24 hours, the ability to choose your seat 22 hours before departure, and tea and coffee on board. Passengers can also pay for access to the SAS Lounge and while there is the ability to add checked baggage at the airport, those sure they are taking checked-in baggage when purchasing their ticket will remain better off booking a ticket in SAS Go.
SAS EuroBonus member benefits are also provided when traveling in SAS Go Light, including Silver, Gold, and Diamond members being able to take checked baggage free of charge when booking in SAS Go Light.
SAS Go Light will not be available domestically within Scandinavia, or outside Europe but is offered on all SAS routes to and from the UK. SAS Go Light has been trialed on selected routes within Europe since autumn 2015 and has received a good response from SAS customers.
