Baggage Allowance and Fees

SAS Airways believes in creating simple rules for bringing carry-on baggage on board SAS flights. The airline allows you to bring one piece of carry-on baggage on board, with an eight-kilogram (18 pounds) weight limit. Some types of tickets permit passengers to bring an additional piece of hand baggage on board SAS Airline flights. Free baggage allowance depends on your ticket type. SAS Go customers can bring one piece of checked baggage weighing up to 51lbs (23kg), SAS Plus customers can bring two pieces weighing 51lbs (23kg) each, and SAS Business customers can bring two pieces weighing 71lbs (32kg) each. EuroBonus Gold and Diamond passengers can also bring two extra pieces of baggage, while Silver members and Star Alliance Gold members can bring one extra piece free of charge. It’s possible to bring extra baggage, but the charges vary depending on a number of factors. SAS have a baggage calculator which you can use to work out the fees for your route.

Seating – Leg Room, Choosing Seats

Legroom is quite generous. Economy passengers have a 32” seat pitch, economy plus passengers have 38”, and there’s a 61” seat pitch in business class.

Smart Pass for SAS Flights

SAS flights present passengers with the option to become Diamond or EuroBonus club members. Both club memberships require passengers to show proof of Scandinavian residency. SAS Smart Pass allows you to identify yourself quickly, as you move through airports towards airline terminals. SAS Airlines recommends that passengers attach the Smart Pass technological ID system to a mobile device, if the device does not include Near Field Communication (NFC).

Meals, Snacks, Drinks

Free tea and coffee are served on all routes. Economy passengers and business class passengers flying within Scandinavia can purchase food and alcohol from the menu. On European flights, business class passengers get a complementary meal and bar service. Food and drink are served in all classes on intercontinental flights.

On-Time Punctuality

SAS has a good punctuality record, with 89% of their flights arriving and departing on time.
