Since Autumn 2015, SAS has offered SAS Go Light on selected destinations in Europe and the response has been very positive, so from 27th April 2016 the airline is introducing the option on all European destinations.
SAS Go Light is designed for customers who want to travel light with only carry-on bags, and who are also looking for a lower price. Passengers travelling with carry-on bags only will be able to fly at a lower price on all routes between Europe and Scandinavia. SAS Go Light complements the SAS Go and SAS Plus products and will be around €14 lower than SAS Go.
“SAS Go Light has been trialled on our Dublin routes since September 2015 and has received a good response from SAS customers,” said Alan Sparling, GSA for SAS in Ireland. “That is why SAS is now launching SAS Go Light for all European destinations. As SAS Go Light will complement existing products, SAS customers will have more opportunity to choose the option that best meets their needs.”
As always, SAS Go Light includes the option to cancel with a full refund within 24 hours, the ability to choose a seat 22 hours before departure, and tea and coffee onboard. You can also pay for access to the SAS Lounge and add checked baggage from €25. So if you want to check in baggage, it is better value to travel in SAS Go.
SAS EuroBonus member benefits are also provided when travelling in SAS Go Light. For example, Silver, Gold, and Diamond members can take checked baggage free of charge when booking in SAS Go Light.
SAS Go Light will not be available domestically, within Scandinavia, or outside Europe.
