Last month saw the fewest number of empty seats on SAS flights in the company’s history.

In all, 2.7 million passengers flew with SAS in July, with a seat occupancy rate of 89.3 percent – one percentage point higher than last July and the highest ever for a single month in the history of SAS.

More miles for less!
The 2.7 million passengers flown by SAS last month was 5.9 percent more than in July 2015, and the average amount of time and distance that passengers flew also increased.

Passengers also paid a bit less per kilometre, with the cost per kilometre flown dropping by one percent.
