SAS, the first airline to operate a trans-polar route, was formed when Norway's Det Norske Luftfartselskap (DNL), Denmark's Det Danske Luftfartselskab (DDL) and Sweden's Swedish Intercontinental Air Traffic (SILA) combined in 1946. SAS, headquartered in Stockholm, provides service throughout Europe, to North America and Asia from its hubs in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. SAS is rolling out the SAS Smart Pass to its EuroBonus Gold members with home addresses in Scandinavia. SAS Smart Pass is a sticker that can transmit a passenger's flight information to readers located at check-in kiosks, security checkpoints, lounges and gates, allowing for a more time efficient and easier travel experience.
SAS provides up to three classes of service on its flights.
All Business Class passengers enjoy complimentary meal and beverage service onboard, as well as priority check-in and security clearance on departure. Business Class passengers on flights to destinations outside of Europe enjoy angled lie-flat seats, entertainment systems with audio and video on demand, a laptop outlet and complimentary meal and beverage service. Passengers traveling internationally beyond Europe in Business Class also enjoy lounge access before their flight, with those traveling on intercontinental flights entitled to use the lounges upon arrival as well.
