SAS traffic figures – January 2017

Published on : Tuesday, February 7, 2017

SAS_logo[2]Although the demand is growing, the operating environment is more challenging, with the yield at historically low levels. One driver for the declining yield is the introduced aviation tax in Norway. In addition, jet fuel prices have increased versus last year combined with an unfavorable USD development versus the SEK, which will have a significant negative impact on SAS’s earnings during the first quarter of the fiscal year 2016/2017.

In fiscal year 2016/2017, SAS’s total capacity growth (ASK) will amount to 6-8%. The growth will be greatest on the intercontinental routes and on the European leisure routes. The increase will primarily be driven by a full-year effect from the new intercontinental routes that commenced during 2015/2016 and the fact that the Airbus A320neo is larger than the aircraft it will replace. The number of flights is expected to increase by about 2%.

SAS scheduled traffic development in January
SAS increased its scheduled capacity in January by 11.3% and the traffic grew by 20.5%. The overall load factor was up 5.3 p.u. versus last year to 69.0%. The load factor improved in all geographical areas with strongest developments on SAS’s intercontinental routes and international routes within Europe.

SAS intercontinental traffic increased 33.1% and the capacity was up 22.4%. The growth was driven by the new routes to/from Los Angeles and Miami as well as positive development on existing Asian routes.

The traffic on the European/Intrascandinavian routes increased by 14.9%. The growth was in particular strong on leisure oriented routes.

On domestic routes, the capacity was increased by 5.4% and the traffic was up by 7.4%.
