Rainy days for SAS

SAS traffic down by 6.7 percent

The Scandinavian Airline System SAS reports a considerable decline in passenger traffic this September. An SAS spokesman said overall traffic dropped by 6.7 percent compared to the same month last year. The so-called cabin factor, which shows how fully loaded planes are, fell by 6.3 percentage points to under 70 percent.

SAS chief executive Mats Jansson called the recline a result of global economic deterioration. Jansson said that the development made the planned capacity reductions of the SAS fleet more necessary than before.

SAS is the jointly operated airline system of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
