Cruise from Stockholm - a port city with a difference

SAS – the Scandinavian Airline

Scandinavian Airlines

SAS

Scandinavian Airlines is the joint national carrier for Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, and embodies the common Scandinavian spirit of all these nations. Scandinavians are known for their informal elegance and genuine concern for human comfort and well being—traits that infuse everything from architecture, to cars, to cuisine. SAS truly reflects this spirit in offering you the perfect blend of comfort, convenience, and Scandinavian style.

On the Ground
Daily nonstop flights from either New York or Chicago to Stockholm make getting to Sweden an easy task. And SAS’s partnership with Continental Airlines, Air Canada, and United Airlines ensures smooth connections to Stockholm-bound flights from point all over North America. For those of you who’d like to explore other Scandinavian destinations while overseas, the SAS Visit Scandinavia Air Pass offers discounted flight coupons good for travel within and between Denmark, Norway and Sweden aboard SAS and regional partner airlines.

When you fly SAS, your vacation can begin before you leave the ground. Travel in Business or Economy Extra class and you’ll check in at dedicated no-wait check-in areas and then be whisked through Fast Trak security, avoiding the discomfort and hassle of those long, cramped security lines—who wants to begin a trip like that? And having been recognized as Europe’s most punctual airline, SAS gives you the piece of mind that they’ll do everything they can to get you to your destination on time.

In the Air
Once onboard you’ll enjoy a comfortable flight filled with amenities. In addition to larger seats with more leg room (and in Business class, the ability to fully recline), Business and Economy Extra passengers dine on delicious, Scandinavian-inspired meals cooked with fresh, organic ingredients. In between meals, you’re free to while away the hours with SAS’s entertainment system, which offers an assortment of on-demand movies, music, and games for all tastes. More contemplative passengers are free to curl up with a good book after adjusting their fully adjustable personal reading lights. For the business-minded among you, dedicated power outlets will keep those mobile devices running.

Environmental Concern
SAS not only takes care of you, the passenger, but also the environment in which we all live. In keeping with Scandinavia’s reputation for environmental concern, SAS has established itself as a leader in CO2 reduction. Through fuel saving and other measures, SAS aims to reduce emissions by 20 percent by 2020 and to fly with no greenhouse emissions by 2050. Equally ambitious is the airline’s plan to adopt renewable fuel sources when these are approved for commercial aircraft.
