SAS launches one-way fares in Europe
SAS is to be the first network carrier to introduce one-way fares to and from European destinations. Tickets will be sold as one-way tickets and can be combined without restriction to form return tickets. Complicated rules, such as the demand that passengers must stay away over a Saturday or Sunday, have been eliminated and it will be easier to find and book tickets at low prices on the Internet.
Sales of the new European tickets will commence on September 1. It will be possible to book the tickets by telephone, through travel agencies or on the Internet, where it will be easy to see what prices are available for each departure. SAS’s German destinations will be included in this offer as of January 2006.
”This is a further step in our commercial activities and we are following up on the success of one-way fares in Norway and Sweden by introducing the same concept on all European routes,” says Jørgen Lindegaard, President and CEO of the SAS Group.
