A total of 614,000 passengers flew with the SAS airline in September. The total capacity was 73% lower than in the same month last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect air traffic. 

At the moment, demand is greater for domestic flights than for European and intercontinental traffic.

“Since March, when almost all our traffic stopped, we have slowly started to build up our network again. 

“We now have up to 380 daily departures to 75 destinations,” the company’s top manager Rickard Gustafson said in a statement.

Norwegian registered a similar traffic decrease in September.

Only 319,370 passengers traveled with Norwegian’s aircraft in September, a decrease of as much as 90% from the same month last year.

“Going forward, we see that this crisis is by no means over,” Norwegian’s CEO Jacob Schram noted.
