SAS Safe Travel

The safety of travelers and staff is always our highest priority. We want you to feel safe when you travel with SAS.

SAS has since the beginning of the corona outbreak taken a number of measures to ensure your safety and well-being on board.

Follow the general recommendations and stay home if you feel sick

  • We work closely with the authorities in all Scandinavian countries, as well as international authorities and regulators. We recommend that you always follow the general recommendations set by health authorities in your country.

    Face mask requirements

    A face mask covering mouth and nose is required during the entire flight, from boarding to disembarkation. This applies to all of our flights. We require you to bring your own face mask. 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.

    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.
