SAS takes one step further on the way towards a sustainable journey. From mid-December, travelers in SAS Business Class will be able to enjoy a new SAS Comfort Kit with products from selected Scandinavian brands. Innovative design, solid craftsmanship and respect from both a social and environmental aspect were the selection criteria.
Travelers can now enjoy a new sustainable SAS Comfort Kit on board flights between Scandinavia and US or Asia. The SAS Comfort Kit consists of carefully selected Scandinavian products.
“Collaborating with suppliers focusing on Scandinavian sustainable design and sustainable travel is of the utmost priority for SAS. We work with everything from aircraft that are more fuel efficient, partnerships to develop biofuel, choice of lighter weight cabin fittings, to biodegradable packaging plus choice of partners that pursue such developments,” says Karl Sandlund, Executive Vice President Commercial.
The SAS Comfort Kit are a continuation of SAS’ long tradition of working with innovative Scandinavian designers. It consists of five products from prominent and forward-thinking Scandinavian brands. Not only are they the perfect combination of products to help ensure a pleasant trip, they also share the values of supporting and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.
“We are proud to offer something extra and unique to our modern travelers, who, like SAS, value high quality, local design and sustainable products. Several of the products have been developed especially for SAS to match our ambitious targets. The products celebrate materials, function, design and consideration in the widest sense,” Sandlund says.
