SAS is to cease tax-free sales from its flights this autumn, in order to reduce the weight of our aircraft as part of efforts to improve the sustainability of its operations.
Withdrawing tax-free sales will reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, which in turn will reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Instead, SAS will develop solutions to offer passengers more modern ways of buying and receiving goods in connection with their journey.
“SAS is aiming to cut emissions by at least 25% by 2030. Every step on the way to sustainable travel is important. Every initiative to reduce weight and thereby cut fuel consumption helps,” commented Karl Sandlund of EVP Commercial.
