The Scandinavian Way to FlyAs the national carrier of not one, but three of the world's most contemporary, innovative and modern countries, Scandinavian Airlines prides itself on representing the region well. SAS' Scandinavian touch is evident throughout SAS' products, services and fleet, and offers the most non-stop flights between the U.S. (Chicago, Newark, and Washington, D.C.) and Scandinavia.
In the AirOnboard SAS' modern and spacious Airbus A330s and A340s there are a number of specific features that sets Scandinavian Airlines apart from its competitors. Scandinavian Airlines is the only northern European airline to offer personal entertainment screens across all classes, including audio/video-on-demand in Economy Extra and Business. SAS is also one of few airlines in the world to offer a wide range of magazines onboard, even in Economy.
SAS is also one of few airlines to offer a premium economy product, Economy Extra. In a separate cabin, Economy Extra passengers enjoy wider and more comfortable seats than in Economy, extended meal services, Business class check-in and priority boarding. SAS Business is full of unique Scandinavian touches, both onboard and on the ground. With the SAS Business Sleeper, SAS guarantees one of the best travel experiences in the sky. A favorite among SAS Business passengers is the popular buffet bar with drinks, fruits, snacks and sandwiches, as well as an espresso machine, which is available between meals. The spacious restrooms, which feature windows, are particularly popular with the ladies, and there is also a handle bar to stretch your back during the flight.
On the GroundIn line with Scandinavian efficiency, SAS was one of the first airlines in the world to introduce self service check-in, and later online check-in. In Sweden, SAS has also launched biometrics check-in for domestic travel, another world first. By flying SAS, passengers will travel to and from two of the world's most modern and efficient airports: Copenhagen and Stockholm airports.
The SAS lounges are all furnished in Scandinavian style with elegant colors and include functional, yet comfortable, design features. The SAS lounges are designed to make you feel at home as an extension of your own living room. All lounges also offer complimentary wireless broadband, and SAS was the first airline to offer free IP telephony via Skype in the lounges.
