Get ready to travel during Corona

The safety of our travelers and staff is always our highest priority. In these days with travel restrictions it is also important to get yourself ready to travel. Therefore we offer a new digital service, SAS Travel Ready Center.

SAS has since the beginning of the Corona outbreak taken a number of measures to ensure your safety and well-being onboard. Now we make it easier for you to keep track of updated travel restrictions and digitally prepare all necessary documents before check-in. To make sure your travel planning goes smoothly we offer a new online service, SAS Travel Ready Center, that makes check-in to selected destinations an easy and smooth process. Instead of going to the airport to get all documents approved manually with the risk of long queues, we do it for you online. It's faster and you can be sure that you are ready for take off when it's time to go to the airport. Firstly, check updated Corona requirements for your destination. Secondly, upload the required documents and get them approved online by SAS. After approval you can check in and retrieve you boarding card. All self service flows e.g. bag drop will be open as normal!

Travel news and restrictions

Here we have collected important information regarding booking, refund rules, entry restrictions and travel certificates. Please make sure to keep yourself updated since entry restrictions may change on short notice. As a traveler you are responsible for making sure you meet the necessary requirements to enter your destination, before leaving for the airport. For guidance, please consult with government bodies, such as the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Face mask requirements

We require you to bring your own face mask, which covers both nose and mouth. SAS approves facemasks that are manufactured and intended for medical use, or of a similar standard. Homemade masks or masks made of cloth are not allowed. A face mask is required during the entire flight, from boarding to disembarkation. This applies to all of our flights. Children younger than 6 years are exempted from this rule. A face mask is only valid for four hours. This means you will have to bring as many face masks as you need during your travel. Remember that you might need an extra mask upon arrival. SAS also strongly recommend all customers to read the requirements of wearing a face mask at airports when traveling.

Coronavirus testing

Are you planning to travel and need a certificate proving you are fit to travel? Some countries require a negative corona test result (PCR-tests or a rapid antigen tests) and a medical certificate before you can board the aircraft or to enter the country. Some countries require it for transit as well. To ensure easy access to testing services at a discounted price we have partnered with the healthcare service companies Doktor24, Volvat, Vaccina and Qured. Here you can read more about different testing services for travel certificates.

    The air on board

    Almost all our aircraft are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that are capable of capturing up to 99.97% of microbes, like viruses and bacteria, ensuring a high air quality. The air on board is exchanged every 2-3 minutes. The air on board is pressed down from the ceiling to the floor. This makes it difficult for droplets to spread, as the air flow makes droplets immediately fall to the floor immediately. All our Airbus and Boeing aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters. Flights operated with ATR aircraft has another type of air filter on board, which ensures a continuous flow of fresh air to the cabin.
