May Traffic Figures Affected by Two Days of Pilot Strike

Published on : Tuesday, June 11, 2019

SASThe pilot strike had a negative impact also on May traffic figures as it affected nearly 100 000 customers. Underlying trend of positive unit revenue development continues with an increase of 1.6% compared to same period last year.

 

 

Scheduled capacity decreased with 6.6% and number of passengers decreased with 10.0% as a result of the 1 200 flights that were canceled due to the pilot strike in the first two days of May. The positive underlying trend in currency adjusted unit revenue and yield continues, with May figures showing an increase of 1.6% and 5.4%, respectively.

 

 

– Despite that SAS was negatively affected by the strike also in May, we were able to resume normal operations swiftly. We are now looking forward to our summer season, in which we have added 25 new routes and five new destinations – Florence, Marseille, Szczecin, Cornwall and Oulu. We have also strengthened our product offering by opening 12 new Fast Tracks in Europe and providing priority boarding with a friend or family for our EuroBonus Gold and Diamond members, says Rickard Gustafson, CEO of SAS.
