SAS extends “light” – but not within Scandinavia

SAS Go Light designed for passengers with carry-on bags
SAS says it is expanding its carry-on-bag-only option to all European destinations. The product was first launched on selected destinations in Europe in autumn 2015, to what the airline calls a “very positive” response.
SAS Go Light is designed for passengers who want to travel light with only carry-on bags, and who are also looking for a lower price. It complements the SAS Go and SAS Plus products, with fares around SEK 120 (€13) lower than SAS Go.
From April 27, SAS Go Light will be extended to all routes between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. However, it will still not be available domestically, within Scandinavia, or outside Europe.
As with other products, Light includes the option to cancel with a full refund within 24 hours, the ability to choose a seat 22 hours before departure, and tea and coffee on board.
“We’ve listened to our customers who want a more scaled-down option and tickets in a lower price range for those traveling without check-in bags,” says Stephanie Smitt Lindberg, vice president for customer journey and loyalty at SAS. “That’s why we’re now launching SAS Go Light for all European destinations. As SAS Go Light will complement our existing products, our customers will have more opportunity to choose the option that best meets their needs.”
