Overall, the competition and capacity in the Nordic market intensified combined with a slowdown in the growth during the end of calendar year 2013. Although SAS has focused on defending its yield, as expected, this development has continued in the first quarter of the 2013/2014 financial year with a negative yield/PASK and low growth. Demand continues to be strongest on intercontinental routes and relatively stable on routes within Scandinavia, while weaker on European routes.
Currency adjusted yield in December 2013 was down 6.9% and PASK* was down 8,1% versus previous year, weak as expected. In January 2014, the change in yield and PASK vs. last year will continue to be negative.
