SAS Group is happy with traffic growth

Leisure destinations boost airline’s September figures

SAS Group’s load factor improved by 1.9 percentage points in September, reaching 76.5%. It carried 2.6 million passengers during the month, up 3.5%. Its capacity (ASK) increased by 5.5%, while traffic (RPK) increased by 8.3%. The group reported that “traffic growth was good on most routes during September and particularly strong on intercontinental and European routes as the Group increased its seasonal capacity to leisure destinations.”
The company added that response to its market campaigns is also good, and forward booking levels “continue to be well above last year’s level”. However, a note of caution was sounded: “Market growth […] remains unpredictable due to added capacity in certain markets, risk in the global economy and high jet fuel prices.”
