Businesses to benefit from new SAS idea

The Scandinavian airline has announced today a new corporate program aimed at SMEs.

SAS has revealed today that it is launching a new program designed to make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to book tickets while getting an immediate discount.

Available from June 1, the new scheme, SAS For Business, will make the process of booking tickets for SMEs, with discounts given at the time of purchase, “simpler and more transparent”.

The airline promises that the program “will help make the travel experience easier from the moment a ticket is booked”.

“We know that time is an important factor for our corporate customers,” says Markus Ek, the airline’s vice president for corporate and agent sales.

“Which is why we are launching SAS For Business, which not only saves customers time but also makes the process far more transparent as they can see how their discount agreement works at the same time.”

Outstanding credits
Small and medium-sized enterprises can now use the SAS Credits program, where they earn credits that can later be used to buy new tickets – and these credits will be immediately available as a discount.

The discount itself will depend on the business agreement the SME has with SAS and whether a Go, Plus or Business ticket is booked.

SAS Credits can continue to be earned until June 30 and any outstanding credits must be used for bookings by the end of 2018, although the flights can be in 2019.

“We have been in dialog with SME customers concerning what kind of program they would like for some time now. What’s important for them is that the program is easy to understand and manage. We have listened to them,” Ek claims.

SAS says it currently has around 64,000 SME customers.
