Bid for an upgrade

Upgrade to SAS Plus or SAS Business by placing a bid at My bookings

You can place your bid from the time you book up until 6 hours before departure on flights to North America and Asia and up to 25 hours before departure on domestic and European flights. The minimum bid depends on the flight.

On flights to North America, you can place 2 bids: one for SAS Plus and one for SAS Business. We’ll rank your bid once all available seats have been assigned, and if you don’t get your SAS Business upgrade, you’ll still have a chance to be upgraded to SAS Plus. Good luck!

How to place a bid

  1. Choose travel class to upgrade to, SAS Plus or SAS Business.

  2. Choose payment option, pay with credit card or using points.

  3. Enter a bid per traveler and confirm your bid.

  4. Enter your payment details, review and post your bid.

Multiple bid

  1. Enhance your likelihood of securing a premium seat by placing a contingency bid on Plus. In the event that business class seats are not available, we will make every effort to upgrade you to Plus subject to availability.

  2. Place a backup bid.

  3. Add backup bid.

  4. Update Backup bid.

What happens next?

We’ll review your bid and you’ll be notified by email of whether your upgrade bid was accepted or not, between 25 and 6 hours before departure.

Upgrade confirmed

If your upgrade is confirmed, your credit card will be charged/points will be deducted from your EuroBonus account and you will receive an upgraded boarding pass when you check in.

If you're a SAS EuroBonus Diamond-, Gold- or Silver member, we’ll recognize your status by up-weighting your SAS Upgrade offer, so you’ll have an even greater chance of getting your SAS Upgrade.

Upgrade not accepted, rejected or failed

If your bid is not accepted, rejected or failed, you won’t need to do anything – you’ll keep your original seat/service class, and you won't be charged/no points will be deducted from your EuroBonus account.

Upgrade with points or money

You can pay for an upgrade using EuroBonus points or credit card.
