SAS breaks all-time passenger record


But rival Norwegian is intensifying competition
SAS has set an all-time record for the month of July, with nearly 2.5 million passengers on the airline’s scheduled flights. It also achieved a single-month load factor record, at 88.2%.
“Demand for long-haul traffic, European leisure routes and domestic routes continues to grow,” the 70-year-old carrier said in a statement.
But it cautioned that intensifying competition had led to a 1% currency-adjusted yield decline during the month and that yield “has declined more than anticipated” so far this year.
SAS rival Norwegian revealed in a press release last Friday that it carried more than 2.93 million passengers on its commercial and charter flights in July, up 9% year-on-year. If SAS’s charter flights are included, its total July passenger stats were at 2.74 million.
