SAS is preparing to launch a new program
designed to make it easier for small and medium sized enterprises
(SMEs) to book tickets and get a discount immediately at the time
SMEs using the new SAS For Business program will
find booking tickets with a discount simpler and more transparent.
The program launches 1 June 2018.
"We know that time is an important factor for
our corporate customers. Which is why we are launching SAS For
Business, that not only saves customers time, but also makes the
process far more transparent as they can see how their discount
agreement works at the same time," said Markus Ek, VP Corporate and
Agent Sales at SAS.
SME customers can today use the SAS Credits program
to earn credits that can later be used to buy
new SAS tickets. Now, the credit will be available immediately as
a discount. The discount itself will depend on the business
agreement the SME has with SAS and whether a Go, Plus or Business
ticket is booked.
"We have been in dialog with SME customers
concerning what kind of program they would like for some time now.
What’s important for them is that the program is easy to
understand and manage. We have listened to them," said Markus Ek.
The new program is aimed at SMEs of which SAS
currently has 64,000 customers.
SAS Credits can continue to be earned until 30
June and any outstanding credits must be used for bookings by 31
December 2018, although the flights can be taken in 2019.
