Discover all of the innovations here at SAS New Experience.

Every day, Scandinavia’s most experienced travelers are boarding our aircraft and resting in our lounges. They’re the reason we push ourselves to give more. And they’re why we will continue to do so in the future. 

Every innovation we create is from our travelers’ perspective. Their view of the world is our view. 
Time matters to them, so making their time with SAS as comfortable 
and rewarding as possible is in our DNA.

In harmony with our travelers, we’ve upgraded our entire long-haul fleet – and now it’s time to turn our short-haul flights into greater experiences.

Flying on SAS should always be about more than going from A to B. Rather, it’s a place to be, a place to work and a place to enjoy in every way imagined by travelers.

Airbus A320neo imagined by travelers

We are proud to present the Airbus A320neo to our travelers on short-haul flights. Quieter than ever before and lit with mood lights, the cabins of Neo give you a superior experience to the classic Airbus planes. With its bigger engines and sharklet wingtips, Neo is also the most environmentally-friendly choice on these distances, using 15-20 % less fuel than other aircraft today. Welcome onboard.

New Airbus A320neo

SAS is upgrading its entire short- and medium-haul fleet of 100 planes. The upgrade includes the replacement of 30 of these planes with the A320neo, the most efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft in short- and middle-range traffic. The A320neo burns 15-20% less fuel per flight compared to the aircraft used today and will therefore help SAS achieve its sustainability goals. During 2017, it will also be fitted with Europe's fastest onboard WiFi. Follow the progress of the fleet upgrade here.

Explore the A320neo cabin

The new cabin features a new interior color scheme using soft grays with wood accents in a spacious cabin making your travel as comfortable as possible.

The all-new cabin in the A320neo brings you extra legroom and more comfortable seats equipped with softer, lighter and more comfortable seat cushions. Each passenger seat is equipped with an easily accessible high power USB outlet and during 2017, all cabins will be fitted with Europe's fastest onboard WiFi. Not only do travelers enjoy extra space, the overhead compartments also hold more baggage than most of the current SAS aircraft and all of the cabins are also fitted with the innovative mood lighting that’s also used in our long-haul cabins.

Cabin mood lighting

The light inside the cabin can be altered to create different atmospheres. For example, when serving food, the lighting is inspired by candlelight and when flying at night, the feeling of twilight in Scandinavia is created.

How a test flight is made

How a test flight is made

December 13, 2016

When SAS takes delivery of a new A320 neo two pilots put the plane through its paces before signing on the dotted line.

In mid-October 2016 SAS was ready to take delivery of the first of 30 new A320neo planes as part of the upgrade of the short and medium haul fleet. But before that could happen two pilots – SAS Fleet Chief Pilot Ole Jørgen Jørgensen and Project Tech Pilot Ørjan Goteman – needed to make sure everything was in order.

For 90 minutes Jørgensen made the first SAS A320neo acceptance flight in the skies over Hamburg, Germany. During the flight he made sure that the plane was behaving according to specifications, testing the radios, the data communications, the displays, the engines, and the landing systems. Once that he confirmed that everything was in order the papers were signed, the plane was bought, and it was all systems go.

“Airbus does the initial test flight when the plane comes off the production line,” says Fleet Chief Pilot Ole Jørgen Jörgensen.  “When we arrive to take delivery we use something called a CAM – the Customer Acceptance Manual.”

According to Project Tech Pilot Ørjan Goteman, who did the acceptance flight for the second A320neo to be delivered, acceptance flights are slightly less comprehensive than a test flight but they are no less important. 

“It’s a fixed manual we check against,” says Project Tech Pilot Ørjan Goteman. “In addition, we cherry pick aspects of the production test flight protocol that might have been a bit wonky. The flight envelope is inside the certified limits of the aircraft – but well outside the flight you would encounter on a passenger flight.

“Routinely we check the flight control authority by flying up to 30 degrees pitch up and 67 degrees bank, followed by 15 degrees pitch down. This is preferably done in a smooth and continuous meneuver. The air condition packs are then switched off at 31 000 feet to check cabin depressurization rate. After a descent to below 14 000 we check the low speed characterisitcs of the aircraft, flying at absolutely minimum speed (maximum alpha) with the aircraft in landing configuration.  Lazy eights are also performed: climbing up and then turning back with max back up. It’s a great feeling if you do it quite softly.”

Who are SAS’s test pilots?

Ole Jørgen Jørgensen
SAS Flight Chief
Age: 59
Family: Wife, two children
Career: Fell in love with planes when he was 5-years-old; 17 years in the Air Force, became certified test pilot at Edwards Air Force Base in California before becoming a commercial pilot. 20 years at SAS Flight Operations. Will return to flying regular flights before retiring in a few years. 

Ørjan Goteman
SAS Project Tech Pilot
Age: 58
Family: Wife, three children
Career: Began career in the Air Force before training as a medical doctor and surgeon.  Had to choose between medicine and flying. Chose flying. PhD in engineering.  SAS training pilot and technical pilot, also does line flying.

Once the pilots verify everything is in order they sign the papers, then fly the empty plane back to SAS homebase, where small modifications are made to give the aircraft the SAS flair.

Jørgensen says SAS has been working on purchasing the A320 neo for a long time so the entire SAS Airbus office has been geared up and ready for the new planes to arrive.

“For the passengers the comfort is taken to a new level, and for the environment it burns 15% less fuel than the present planes,” says Jørgensen.  “But for us, the pilots, the Neo is the greatest working environment possible. There’s no comparison when it comes to the cockpit and flying experience, and all the pilots are eager to get into this plane.”

Pilots typically sit in their ‘office’ – the cockpit – around 8-9 hours a day, and often up to 13 hours a day. But while other planes have small, narrow, and not very comfortable cockpits, the Neo cockpit has a wider, roomier cockpit, a tray that can be pulled up for eating, and most importantly a quieter environment. In short, pilots say the A320neo is the best, most modern ‘office’ they could hope for.

“The lower noise level is really noticeable,” says Goteman. “We don’t need to wear headsets all the time due to the lower noise, other than during take off, landing, and taxiing. This is my office and things like this really count.”

Passengers have also commented on the reduced noise. 

“I flew the first A320 neo commercial flight, from Stockholm to Copenhagen,” says Jørgensen. “So many passengers came up to me after we landed to tell me that the flight was noticeably quieter. This is a great investment for SAS as we move into the future.”

One thing that will continue to keep SAS moving into the future is the capability of the A320neo to make approaches on a curved path.

“Most aircraft do straight approaches,” says Goteman. “But the Neo can fly exactly on the curved path, which avoids noise and obstacles. We don’t need a ground transmitter – we use GPS just like you do in your car, except on a much higher scale. The entire shorthaul fleet will be capable of making curved approaches in the future.”

Being a test pilot means you don’t just test new planes, though; pilots also test aircraft that have undergone heavy maintenance, such as changing out two engines.

“These types of test flights are even more fun,” says Goteman. “And this is when we go all in. We test absolutely everything: the limits of high speed, low speed and manoeuvrability.”

SAS has just 8-10 test pilots and becoming one takes a particular set of skills.  Goteman and Jørgensen say the most important thing is the right attitude: you have to be capable of both getting into the details but also know when they’re not important – and you need the ability to cope in situations without full support, which means you do the best you can while getting on with the main objective.

“You of course need to be a good pilot,” says Goteman. ”But you also have to have an overview of both technical and operational aspects, as well as be aware of the priorities of the exercises.  Thinking on your feet – making decisions in the moment and knowing how to respond – that’s really key because we can’t always predict what will happen.”

SAS will take delivery of 30 A320 neos over the next several years and Goteman and Jørgensen will be on hand to make sure everything is in order before flying the planes to homebase.  The two men love what they do and seem to perfectly compliment one another.

“I’m more the thorough theoretical guy and Ole is more the test pilot guy,” says Goteman. “So together we make a great team.”

Dining imagined by travelers

Dining at the speed of 850 km/h is quite extreme and space is limited. But the experience of being restored and refreshed doesn’t have to be.

Introducing our new food and beverage concept on short-haul flights, a new handy way to eat on an airplane. Food made with fresh local and seasonal ingredients originating from the country where the plane takes off, served in a concept easy to hack to your own liking.

Scandinavian heritage

At the core of the new food & beverage concept is the Cube. The inspiration comes from Scandinavian heritage and nature, with illustrations inspired by Scandinavian scenery. The exterior of the Cube is a soothing white, with calming graphic illustrations that reflect the Norwegian mountains, the Danish coast and the Swedish forests. When the Cube is opened, the theme continues, giving a dynamic feeling to SAS’ Scandinavian heritage. When you lift the lid, the Scandinavian theme continues to unfold. Self-contained layers are revealed: the first thing you see is menu card, then the cutlery, which is embedded in the lid, then the condiments. All of the packaging has a fresh design that celebrates Scandinavian heritage and design.

Premium practicality

The Cube is both practical and premium – and opening it is a bit like unveiling a brand-new mobile phone or a box of premium chocolates. Beneath the layers of the newly designed menu, condiments, and cutlery is the main meal featuring local ingredients that reflect the seasons. Warm side dishes are served separately as is dessert, giving travelers more options to hack the meal their way and also cutting down on waste. And when you’ve finished eating? You simply slip everything back into the Cube and tuck it under your seat or to the side. The traveler is now in control.

The Scandinavian touch

Strengthening Scandinavian origins and finding inspiration in Scandinavian nature is at the heart of the new food & beverage concept. The SAS design team has worked closely with SAS Head Chef Peter Lawrance to develop a concept that marries both the design and the food being served. Working with clean, simple cubist shapes and nature graphics in a beautiful blue tint strongly reflects SAS’ Scandinavian heritage. From the micro perspective used in the menu, you can almost feel and smell the nature, while the macro perspective used for the Cube lets the food take center stage. Welcome to the new SAS food experience.

Locally sourced, locally produced

The new SAS food & beverage concept puts the focus on the finest and freshest local ingredients flavors, perfectly reflecting the SAS New Experience.

SAS Head Chef Peter Lawrance has developed a rotating set of menus that are based on Nordic produce and seasonal ingredients, with New Nordic cuisine being a strong inspiration. New breads that are a cross between bread and a scone are filled with Scandinavian flavors, such as mushrooms and pine, and are matched to the main meals, such as Norwegian salmon smoked at Grisslehamn or almond potato mayonnaise with Västerbotten cheese. The menus rotate several times a week and will change with the seasons, so while you will enjoy a salad featuring fresh asparagus from Gotland in the summer when the asparagus season ends, you’ll enjoy a new menu that uses only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients. SAS’ new food & beverage concept is revolutionizing the onboard dining experience – putting travelers in control.

Snacks & Beverages

When the first part of SAS’ new food & beverage concept, snack & beverage, was introduced in March, it highlighted SAS’ continued commitment to the New Experience, improving onboard satisfaction, and keeping the focus on local Scandinavian producers – and signaled a freshness in thinking. A bag of Sweden’s Larssons Chips will tell you where the potatoes were grown. Speedy Tom Chocolate from Denmark will open your eyes to exciting new flavor combinations and Norway’s Ringi Apple Juice will make it clear that locally-pressed apples make a real taste difference. High-quality stronger beverages, such as Denmark’s Mikkeller Vodka, Sweden’s Mackmyra Whiskey and Norway’s Harahorn Gin, have also been added to the snack & beverage menu, while old favorites such as Coca-Cola remain.

SAS new dining concept – fresh, seasonal, sustainable

SAS new dining concept – fresh, seasonal, sustainable

May 20, 2017

A project two years in the making, SAS’ new dining concept, New Nordic by SAS, is poised to change the experience of onboard meals.

As ambassadors for the Nordic countries, SAS realized that des­pite big leaps forward in dining and healthy eating on the ground, not least the emergence of new Nordic cuisine, both the food and onboard dining experience had become lackluster. 

When SAS began working on its new food and drink concept, it looked closely at onboard circumstances – small spaces and close neighbors – and decided it was time to embrace the unique onboard envir­onment, rather than fight against it. The question was how to do it? The answer came in the shape of a cube. 

“We are travelers and we’re on the go,” says Stephanie Smitt Lindberg, VP Customer Journey & Loyalty SAS. “With the Cube, we’ve created a functional yet premium dining experience that supports customers’ wishes to both eat and work at the same time, as well as supporting their healthy lifestyles.”

Inspiration for the Cube came from a number of areas including takeout food, which offers a great meal consumed in an easy one-hand experience. The concept also embraces consumers’ wish to personalize food with various condiments and sides that are offered separately. Another inspiration was the New Nordic Food Mani­festo (see interview with Claus Meyer).

“Customers told us they want fresh, seasonal food – and we’ve delivered,” says Smitt Lindberg. “Using quality local producers illustrates our brand and heritage, and the new food and drink concept is perfectly in line with the SAS brand and SAS New Experience.”

Most of all, the Cube is about relevance and serving food in the context of flying. 

“We’ve focused on quality and origin, but also functionality,” says Gustaf Öholm, Head of Onboard Products & Services. “It’s a high-quality product presented and served in a way that utilizes the work space while giving passengers more control.

 “Travelers want a Nordic experience rather than a generic one.” He and his team quickly realized that many frequent flyers saw their onboard meal as one of the drawbacks of travel rather than a highlight.

Another complaint was that once a meal was served, travelers were trapped behind tray tables until cabin staff cleared them.

“The world has changed, but onboard dining had stayed the same,” says Linnea Malmberg, the onboard manager who co-traveled with regular passengers to ­understand how travel fitted into their lifestyle. “This was an opportunity to upgrade the experience while doing something innovative.”

Enter the Cube, which combines elegant, minimal design with locally-­­sourced, seasonal and sustainable food that adheres to the values of the New Nordic Food Manifesto. 

Each Cube contains the main meal, condiments and utensils. Additional warm side dishes and dessert are offered, but not automatically included, so there’s less waste. 

The Cube can be held in the hand like a takeout container, leaving the tray free. Inside, travelers will find free-range chicken from Sweden, salmon from Norway and organic yogurt from Denmark, for ­example. 

“As far as possible, we use Scandinavian suppliers but even when we source food from other countries such as Greece, it’s local, because we fly there,” says Öholm. 

When the meal is finished, the Cube can be reassembled so it takes up minimal space and travelers are free to use their tables. “Basically, it puts choice back into the traveler’s hands,” adds Malmberg.

Comfort imagined by travelers

The journey is about to get even more enjoyable for our 29 million travelers on short-haul flights. The new cabins have the same interior design that has proved to be so popular on our long-haul aircraft. In addition, the seats will be equipped with comfort cushions, USB ports and high-speed WiFi, making short-haul flights feel even shorter.

The Cabin

The new cabin on the short-haul fleet means that no matter where you fly – long or short, Airbus or Boeing – you will enjoy the same new experience every time you board an SAS aircraft. The new comfort cushions will be covered with breathable grey natural fabrics, while the fore and aft walls will be covered with a wooden ash décor and the SAS logo up front. The carpets will be a warm gray, and fluorescent lights will be replaced with LED bulbs, which will warm up slowly and cast a soothing light. High-speed WiFi will be installed, as will high-powered USB ports at every seat. The entire retrofit, which has already begun, will be completed in 2019.

Breaking down the retrofit

A cabin upgrade is a complex undertaking. Read more for further details on how it happens.

WiFi imagined by Travelers

SAS is now installing WiFi onboard, which means you’re in for a new WiFi experience on most shorthaul flights within Scandinavia and Europe.

From the moment you’re in the air to the moment you land you’ll enjoy fast and trouble-free WiFi, which means you can not only catch up on work emails or file that report, you can also shop, book a restaurant or activity, stream your favorite film, or binge-watch that TV show you just can’t get enough of.

Connecting is easy

Connecting onboard is nearly as simple as connecting at home.

You’ll know you’re on a WiFi flight by the sign to the right of the door as you board, and the SAS crew will also make an announcement at the start of your flight. Passengers in Plus, as well as EuroBonus Diamond, and Gold members, enjoy free access to Wi-fi onboard, while Go passengers pay EUR 4,90 for full access.

Rolling it out

Installation of the new high-speed WiFi has already begun, with the first 30 shorthaul planes being introduced during May 2018.

Installation on the rest of the shorthaul fleet is expected to be finished in the beginning of 2020. Each aircraft will undergo extensive testing and SAS won’t release WiFi on any aircraft until it is completely satisfied with the Internet connection.

Only the best provider

SAS is committed to giving passengers the ultimate New Experience so in order to bring passengers the best high-speed WiFi available it has chosen California-based communications company Viasat, an industry leader when it comes to inflight WiFi, to install the new system. Viasat shares SAS’ commitment to quality and customer care so you don’t need to lower your expectations when you board – the WiFi is cutting edge and will not disappoint.

“Introducing WiFi this good is really about making life easier for travelers,” explains Thérèse Lorenius, VP Product & Services. “We want people to be able to make full use of their time onboard.

“Even more importantly, from most airports you can get connected as soon as the plane starts moving – and stay connected right up until you land.”

Using SAS’ new WiFi should be easy and trouble-free. Not only can you catch up on work emails or finish and file that report, you can also shop, book a restaurant or find and reserve an exciting activity at your destination.

California-based communications company Viasat is an industry leader when it comes to in-flight WiFi, so it makes sense that SAS, with its commitment to both quality and customer care, would choose a partner with the same values.  

“SAS is a very strong and proud brand,” says Don Buchman, Vice President and General Manager Commercial Aviation at Viasat. “And the WiFi they’ve chosen reflects that. Passengers don’t need to lower their expectations when they board – the WiFi is cutting-edge and it will never disappoint.”

The new high-speed WiFi will be available on several short-haul flights in the Nordics and to and from Europe and will be rolled out on a continual basis.

‘Travelers shouldn’t have to lower their expectations when they board’

“We really listen to our travelers and not only give them what they want, but what they need,” says Thérèse Lorenius. “This is part of the SAS New Experience, which has already brought fresh interiors, new lounges and the New Nordic Food & Drink Concept – and now WiFi.”

Installation is ongoing and SAS is working around the clock with partner Viasat. There will also be USB ports in most seats, so you’ll never run out of juice.

“Having WiFi onboard means you can be entertained, catch up on work, book that tennis lesson or get in touch with family and friends,” says Gunilla Ait El Mekki, SAS Entertainment and Connectivity Manager.

SAS is always working to not just meet traveler’s needs but to also anticipate them – so watch this space. There are many more welcome surprises coming your way.
