Scandinavian Airlines

About Scandinavian Airlines

Scandinavian Airlines, also known as SAS Airlines, is a joint flag carrier airline for Denmark, Norway and Sweden, with headquarters located in Solna, Sweden. It has hubs in all three countries, even though its primary base is in Sweden, situated at Copenhagen Airport in Denmark, Stockholm Arlanda Airport in Sweden and Oslo Gardermoen Airport in Norway. SAS Airlines has further operations at Stavanger Airport, Bergen Airport, Trondheim Airport and Goteborg Landvetter Airport. It was founded in 1946 by the joining of three countries' individual flag carriers, which were at the time, Det Norske Luftfartselskap in Norway, Svensk Interkontinental Lufttrafik in Sweden and Det Danske Luftfartselskab in Denmark.

Today the SAS airline has a fleet of more than 130 aircraft and operates flights to nearly 120 airports around the world. Some of its most popular flights are those to London, Alicante, Beijing and Washington D.C. It was involved in the founding of the Star Alliance in 1997 and remains a member to this day. Besides its alliance membership, the airline also operates codeshares with Icelandair, Etihad Airways, airBaltic and Nextjet.

Online check-in

SAS airlines offer an online check-in service for its passengers' convenience. This service is available from 22 hours up until 1 hour prior to a flight's scheduled departure time. It also allows passengers to perform various other time saving tasks online, such as choose their seat, add to their luggage allowance or pay for luxury lounge access at the airport. After they have checked in online, passengers can print their own boarding cards or those of other passengers on their ticket. If they have luggage to check in, this can be done at self-service kiosks at the airport, or at a counter where check in is also available.

Hand luggage allowance

Passengers on SAS flights are entitled to bring 1 item of hand luggage as well as a small laptop bag or handbag. The maximum weight for hand luggage is 8 kg however it must be no larger than 55 x 40 x 23 cm. If they are flying to destinations in Asia or the United States and have a SAS Plus or SAS Business booking, passengers can bring 2 pieces of hand luggage, each of which may weigh up to 8 kg. On some of the airline's smaller aircraft, passengers may be asked to check their hand luggage at the gate. They will not be charged for this.

Checked baggage allowance

Depending on the fare type that they have booked, Scandinavian Airlines passengers will have different checked luggage allowances. SAS Go Light passengers are not entitled to any checked luggage, while SAS Go passengers are entitled to 1 piece of checked luggage that's allowed to weigh up to 23 kg. SAS Plus passengers however are entitled to 2 pieces, which can each weigh up to 23 kg. SAS Business passengers are entitled to 2 pieces, in which each can weigh up to 32 kg. The airline will not carry any individual luggage item that weighs more than 32 kg. Such items must be sent as cargo instead. Passengers will be charged if they exceed their luggage allowance.

The seats were very comfortable in the planes, the flights were very smooth, I suppose the free tea, coffee, and cups of water are to be applauded, free food would have been better! The prices of the food and bottle of water on board were very expensive!! If airlines want to be like Ryanair then they shouold charge a lot less for the flights. My nearly new hard suitcase was damaged on the return flight which I am not very pleased about, but I only noticed it the next day when I was unpacking.

I found it strange that purchases on the aircraft could only be paid for by credit card. Some travellers (especially some older people do not have cards & always use cash.) Perhaps there should be the option of one or the other ?

After being held up trying to get through security for 45 minutes I missed my flight at the gate by about 30 second. Despite massive queues the security staff operated at a snails pace.

The flights were really bad and really expensive. SAS is not a good airline. There was a four hour delay to my return flight. I actually gave up and flew on another airline the next day. There is no hope of compensation from the airline as it’s Ryanair! What a bad trip

A very luxurious airport but perhaps not all that well designed. You have to do a lot of walking which may not suit everybody.
