Market and Capacity Development

• Capacity growth is expected to continue during winter 2018/19, and we expect an overall growth of 4-5% during Q1.

• SAS plans to increase capacity by 2-3% in fiscal year 2019, primarily due to more seats in the Airbus A320neo.

SAS – Scheduled Traffic Development

• Intercontinental traffic increased 2.6%, while capacity was down 1.8%. The increase was mainly on Asian routes.

• European/Intrascandinavian traffic declined 1.5% and capacity increased 0.2%. Traffic increased on Intrascandinavian routes but decreased on European routes.
