Over 2 800 flights were canceled and nearly 270 000 customers were affected during the first five days of the pilot strike, resulting in weak traffic figures in April.
2.5 million passengers travelled with SAS in March, an increase of some 70 000 compared to last year. Higher yield compensated for a lower passenger load factor, resulting in an improved unit revenue.
In February, the number of passengers traveling with SAS was in line with last year. A slight decrease in passenger load factor was offset by a higher yield, resulting in an improved unit revenue.
The number of passengers traveling with SAS's scheduled traffic increased slightly compared to January 2018. At the same time, the passenger load factor and unit revenue increased.
