SAS' Economy Extra named the world’s best

December 2, 2011 16:00

Scandinavian Airlines’ long-haul premium economy offering, Economy Extra, has been named the world’s best in a new survey by Global Traveler. Over 36,000 frequent travelers participated, of which almost all travel in a service class other than Economy. SAS placed first in the category Best Airline for Premium Economy with its Economy Extra class. SAS was one of the first airlines in the world to introduce a premium economy back in 2001, and it is available on all long-haul flights between Scandinavia and Asia and the US.“This award is an honor to SAS, especially as it is the most frequent travelers that have voted for us. Our Economy Extra product is well-liked by both business and leisure travelers wanting greater comfort, more leg room and even better service than in Economy, at a very competitive price,” says Rickard Gustafson, CEO, Scandinavian Airlines.                     

Economy Extra on SAS’ long-haul routes is a separate cabin with wider seats than in Economy, more legroom, greater choice of meals and drinks and audio/video-on-demand entertainment. Economy Extra customers can also access Fast Track security, travel with more luggage and earn more EuroBonus points.
