Transforming aviation

In an industry with fierce competition and an increasing focus on the environmental footprint, Scandinavian Airlines, SAS, has embarked on a transformation process to become world leading in sustainability and technology powered customer-centricity.

For SAS, sustainable development implies a simultaneous focus on sustainable profitability and financial growth, gradual environmental improvements and social responsibility. Also, through investments in a new digital platform, AI and robotics, SAS improves and adapts the offering to ensure that it meets customers’ expectations, and to improve the travel experience.
