Although many countries are now easing their entry restrictions, most countries still require various types of travel and test certificates and it is important to be well-prepared well before arriving at the airport. To make it easier for travelers, SAS has developed a new digital platform, SAS Travel Ready Center.
New procedures for checking in due to coronavirus
Through SAS Travel Ready Center, travelers can prepare everything they need online from home. On this site, customers can see what restrictions apply at their destination, upload travel certificates, and have them reviewed and verified by SAS. They can then download their boarding pass electronically and can go directly to the SAS self-service line at the airport.
Flexibility is important for travelers, especially now that travelling is more challenging than usual. SAS customers can rebook international flights up to 72 hours before departure free of charge. SAS has also introduced more flexible rebooking options to make things easier for our customers. SAS Plus tickets can be rebooked and refunded. For domestic flights, SAS offers rebooking free of charge up to an hour before departure for SAS Go Flex tickets. SAS also offers a 24-hour money-back guarantee if customers have booked their flight through SAS.
Safe travel with SAS
Flying is a safe way to travel during the pandemic, as the air on board aircraft hinders the spread of infection. Over the past year, SAS has introduced a range of measures and procedures to further ensure safe air travel.
