In order to achieve Platinum status, at least 80% of the airline’s products must have various kinds of self-service options that passengers are invited to use during their flight. SAS satisfies this requirement by a clear margin, making it the first airline in the world to be given this award.

“We are very proud of this IATA award,” said Alan Sparling, Country Manager for SAS Ireland. 

“We are actively working to constantly improve and develop solutions that make it easier and more convenient for our passengers throughout their journey. This award is a clear acknowledgment that we are an airline at the forefront of time-saving solutions.”

IATA has a target of 80% of all the world’s air travellers having the opportunity to choose self-service options during their trip by the year 2020. 

This means that passengers will be offered a range of options in order to create a simpler and faster flow through the processes involved in taking a flight.
