Scandinavian Airlines-SAS released its traffic figures for June 2020.
As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the total number of passengers was 86% lower compared to last year. From mid-June, SAS doubled its capacity to 30 aircraft and an additional 15 aircraft have returned to service in July.
SAS has increased its capacity and number of passengers as countries are gradually opening up. Compared to last month capacity has increased by 251 million available seat kilometers (ASK) and the number of passengers has increased by 269 thousand. In relation to last year SAS experienced a 91% reduction in capacity and an 86% drop in the total number of passengers.
“We are pleased to welcome more passengers onboard as we slowly start to rebuild our network and increase the connectivity to, from and within Scandinavia,” says Rickard Gustafson, CEO SAS.

RPK – Revenue passenger kilometers
ASK – Available seat kilometers
Load factor – RPK/ASK
Yield – Passenger revenues/RPK (scheduled)
PASK – Passenger revenues/ASK (scheduled)
Change in CO2 emissions 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.
